Hello!
Does anyone know anything about the strangely curious Antiquities shop near the Brewers Arms and whether it ever opens?
I would love to have a rummage around in there but don't think I've ever seen it open?
Thanking you.

There used to be a number in the window that you could ring so that they would come and open up for you. I don't know if that's still the case. I remember buying something in there 28 years ago.

Cool thanks Horseman7, don't think I would want to put anyone to the trouble of opening the shop just for little ole me but I shall keep an eye out!

Hello Ladybird! No, I think the owner has stopped trading "due to illness" a tiny little spidery notice popped up in the window about two years ago, but nothing has happened since. It is very bizarre, since the rates alone must be absolutely crippling. Who knows? Only in Lewes, eh?

I believe the shop belongs to the mother of the woman who runs the 13th Century bookshop a couple of doors along.....

Same goes for Southdown Antiques shop in Cliffe High Street. Sign said everything in the window was sold and the shop never opens. I think I might like an Antique Shop !!

They may be some sort of front for online or wholesale antique trading but as SQ says - the rates!

no, they are just very old indeed and did open a couple of years ago for one weekend. Both are quite fragile now.
