It's full of historic buildings, gorgeous, individually owned shops and antique centres.
One of my very early posts was about Lewes - you can see more pictures here.
We went to look at a place with booths, but first we just HAD to stop for coffee !
Pandy's paying - my turn next time ! We shared a Welsh Rarebit as well. No, I don't like to eat fluffy little bunnies - it's basically melted cheese on toast, sometimes mustard is added, and in this case, beer !
I've been to this place before. It has a coffee shop at the front, and restaurant at the back.
I love that industrial type lighting over the counter.
I digress - I seem to do that a lot where coffee is concerned. Below are pictures of the antiques centre and various booths.
There were about 5 floors and they used every spare inch. Great cabinet with the flag going across the legs as well.
Cute little enamel sink unit.
There were two women running this place, and not the friendliest of women, but we had come to ask about a booth, so ask we did.
One of the women reluctantly showed me a book, with what could have been about a hundred names - the waiting list was very, very long.
I asked the price.
She said £185 to £220 per month depending on the size.
Unfortunately she caught the look of horror that flashed across my face, she nearly closed the book.
Luckily Pandy took control of the situation, and told me to put my name down anyway.
I did, but we left deflated ( we hadn't even bought anything ).
We would have gone for tea and cake here, we needed another pick-me-up, but time was running out on the car.
When we got back to my house, the old geezer talked some sense into us. He thought the price was pretty good. He said that if the waiting list was that long, then none of the booth owners were unhappy with their takings. He made sense.
SO, next week I'm going to look somewhere different with another friend and I reckon that in about 10 years I might just get a phone call from Lewes - I should have enough stock by then !!
