As the first week of 2021 gets underway and despite the gloom, we are feeling optomistic about the new year as it stretches before us. Let's all hope for a brighter future. We wish you and your loved ones have the very best of years. Stay safe and well wherever you are xxx
As many of you are already aware, we decided long ago that this would be our last Christmas in our current home on the High Street. After 16 happy years, we feel we'd like a bit of a change of scene and some space to explore new projects and plans, so we're looking forward to bringing you FLINT in a slightly new guise next year.
Our website here will continue to grow in the meantime and shall be open as usual. We're expanding our range of own-label products too so please keep tuning in for updates via our mailing list or via Instagram. We have had a wonderful time in Lewes but are now looking forward to a fresh start.
Thank you every one of you who came in and chose to shop with us, your support and loyalty over the years has been truly heartwarming.
We wish you all a positive, healthy and prosperous 2021 and shall look forward to seeing our FLINT friends again soon.
With very best wishes from Heidi, Julia
and our amazing team, Jill, Cat, Sonia and Lucy xxx

The pandemic has affected us all in different ways. Many of us feel unsafe going into shops or perhaps can't because they're shielding. Judging by the messages we've received lately, many of you are already thinking about Christmas and worried about how you're going to go about your gift buying.
Perhaps you have a list of people you'd like to buy for but are unsure of what to give? Would you like to buy something for someone you know loves our store but you don't know where to start?
Over the coming weeks we have lots of beautiful and unusual gift ideas arriving and some, but not all, will be on our website. If you'd like our help with choosing, feel free to email your queries to Heidi at firstname.lastname@example.org . We'll not only help with suggestions, we'll wrap your purchases in tissue or even gift wrap them if you'd like and we'll have them ready for you to collect or delivered to your address, wherever you are.
