Brighton: A Vintage Shopper’s Paradise

A Vintage Shopper’s Paradise on the Sussex Coast

It’s true, Brighton seems to be a vintage shopper’s paradise these days, and quite a bit more than just somewhere to go for a seaside day out.

I mentioned Nottingham had quite a few vintage shops, which is true, but I think Brighton more than tops that! ๐Ÿง

If you’re travelling by train, veer down to the left of the main rail station as you exit and you’ll find a cluster of streets, dotted and lined with all sorts of quirky independent shops, many of which are vintage/retro types along with cafes, restaurants etc…

Streets include:

  • Kensington Place
  • Kensington Gardens
  • Gloucester Rd
  • Sydney Street
  • Kings Rd
  • Vine Street

There’s probably nothing there that you actually need, but lots of things to pass the time browsing.

If you’re a certified vintage lover, you might already know these haunts, and won’t be disappointed if you decide to visit.

Would you try your luck here? โ˜•๏ธ

You could probably spend all day browsing, it’s definitely a vintage shopper’s paradise.

….another man’s treasure!

Down by the sea

After all that browsing, a dose of sea breeze is always in order.

Down on the Brighton beach

Now that’s a first – puts a whole new meaning to a drop top convertible. Looks watertight and easy to replace – easy to customise with different umbrellas lol ๐Ÿ˜†

Is this Mr Chips from Catchphrase? No, I didn’t think so ๐Ÿ“บ

    Another fantastic post, Cherryl. It’s great to see Brighton as it is today. I’ve only visited there once, and that was very many years ago. If I recall correctly, I went there with my Mum, which puzzles me now as she had terrible agoraphobia, so how on Earth she managed that trip, I honestly can’t imagine. I loved it then and know I would love it more if I could get there today. The vintage shops are amazing – such a variety of ‘stuff’. I’d be in my element. I love the pebbles on the beach in your photos. I love stones in general. Is that bird a baby seagull, as it looks like it still has its fluffy feathers? Another love of mine is beach huts with all their variety of colours. As for the sea – was it really that colour? It’s stunning. Who needs the South of France when we’ve got Brighton. Give me Brighton any day.

    I was also interested and surprised to see the Extinction Rebellion logo sitting just above the owl amongst the street art photos. Believe it or not, and it may come as a surprise, I’m a member of Extinction Rebellion (XR as we call it) and have been on several protests, only one in London. However, I hope to go to London again for the upcoming XR festival next week. That’s providing I can face the train journey up there. It’s not easy with a wheelchair. It does depend on the weather, too, as I can’t drive Alfie (my wheelchair) and hold an umbrella up at the same time. We shall see. If I go, I’ll write a post about it when I get back. Looking forward to seeing more of your travels next time. Your blog is a real treat … Ellie xx ๐Ÿฆข๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ•Š
