Sorry if this is not the right place for this sort of post but I would appreciate some advice:My 90 yearold grandmother lives in Lewes and I want to bring her in to town to buy an outfit for an evening wedding. She wants to "dress her age" but also look good. Any recommendations of which shops to try. Preferably ones near each other with a cafe near too. Any advice much appreciated. Thanks

I think Chav was enquiring about the fitness of the young lady becasue of the distance you will nedd to park away from the Car Boot sale to avaiod a ticket. I think Ringmer is 5 miles away.

The only suggestion I could make is "Capriccio" on the High Street (opposite Cafe Nerd) but their market is aimed at a more middle aged woman (and the staff have a reputation of being frightful snobs).

Katherine, there are a couple of others as well as Capriccio, though none very cheap (Capriccio is a bit further up the street towards the bottle-neck than opposite Cafe Nero). There's Renwick Clarke, which is opposite Monsoon. And there is Delilah, nearer Capriccio but on the other side of the street. Sorry you didn't get much help nearer the start of the thread.

You could always try Seaford. The shops there already smell of blue rinse and urine so you will have a head start.

Chav is obviously so unpopular with women that he has to spend lonely time at home joining in threads about ladies clothes. The above three are worth looking at. There is used to be a boutique in Cliffe High St, but I don't know if it is still there. If your grandmother likes a second hand bargain, the martletts shop used to be good for labels, but maybe not for a special occasion. Why not ring one of the shops mentioned, say you are going to visit, and ask if they know of anywhere else you could go while you are there. I am sure they wouldn't mind.

Actually Sashka, Martlets is a really good idea because they have a posher dresses bit upstairs. Also for secondhand bargains there are two dress agencies in town, Roundabout at the bottom of Cliffe High Street and Stock Market (at least I think it's still there) near the Lloyds Bank car-park.
