The Art of Living: Vintage Brighton

The collection of Paumes books in the Sisters Guild Boutique includes the title London Vintage which I recently had a peek at and it got me thinking about Brighton and all the Vintage spots around the North Laines.  The North Laines are a visual treat for browsing and discovering unusual bits and pieces.

My passion for vintage started young as we grew up in the countryside oustide Bath and when we went into the city we were drawn into the Antiques markets.  Carla & I both had a fascination with old linens and textiles from quite a young age and Carla had an amazing collection of vintage gloves and bags.  Later on came the furniture and our vintage love affair still continues to this day.  Even though there's no more room in my home for furniture there's always a shelf that can carry a small object, or room in a drawer for some antique napkins!

I sometimes have those rare Saturdays when I'm child-free and I can skip around Brighton.  That means I get to browse my favourite shops and takes some pics too! 

The North Laines in Brighton is an area full of so many unique and independent shops. I really hope it stays that way.  It's the reason why I love Brighton and why so many people enjoy visiting.
