This is the place to shop if you like second hand anything. The atmosphere is great, everyone's looking for bargains and when I say bargains I MEAN BARGAINS!
What to buy: Here you can find virtually anything, from clothes, toys, books, watches, shoes, records, cds to the most unusual things. You can find furniture here too. It's absolutely amazing!

There are plenty of shops to buy from on Western road such as Primark and Topshop...plenty of discount /1 pound stores and further down food shops towards hove. So no need to saty inside the shopping centre.
This shop is at the "lanes" in Brighton. The shoes are a little expensive, but they are made out of a synthetic, breathable fabric. No animals were harmed to make them...and they don't make you're feet all nasty and sweaty like pleather shoes!
Best area to shop in Brighton, the North Laine has everything.
It's North Laine, because it was originally a 'laine':
'The word Laine derives from an Anglo-Saxon word meaning 'loan' or 'lease' and was always the local word for these large open fields which covered the length and breadth of Britain until the Agrarian Revolution of the 18th and 19th Centuries.'

Gunns flowers has the most freiendly atmosphere and you get what you pay for! They have bunches outside or will make you up a bouquet for whatever price. They also deliver, we ordered one bouquet for a birthday and spent £35 and it couldn't fit through the door! Perfect!

I never knew there is such a shop specifically for the giants where you can almost find anything from clothes to accessories specially made for the high & mighty (extraordinary big). Im not suprise if any of the professional basketball player from the NBA such Michael Jordan come to this shop.
Cook is a special food store, I never saw such before, lots of unique recipes, all frozen food, it is all ready for you just to take home and cook it

The Lanes are a popular area of Brighton. The shops are bright and different. Clothes, shoes, antiques, beads and anything else you can think off. Browse or spend but enjoy the adventure.
Along the boulevard you will find a few shopping stalls. This stall selling lots of seashells and seastars was particularly nice. It would be nice to decorate your bathroom with or something.
