I've been working on Kensington Gardens for almost 3 years now and it really is a great place to be. The diversity of the people and fantastic characters I meet day to day is fabulous. I've realised that there is a real community spirit between the other traders (some of whom have been here for over twenty years) and that the overall feeling down here on Kensington Gardens is one of.... as I'm typing slow-walking James (a local man in his 70s walks by with a pink sparkly top hat, baby head earrings harlequin leggings and red and black cowboy boots) As I was saying ..the feeling down here is that of a truly unique street full of colour, Independent shops fantastic people. "It's like a street from the swinging sixties" I hear a lot! and I have to say from all the people I meet from traders to locals, students & visitors they always seem to be the friendliest bunch I've ever met. I truly love working on this street! Over and out for now. Time to get back to work. Jules
There is no better time of the year to tell you the story of the Claddagh ring. With Valentines day just around the corner on 14th February, our team member Georgi writes about the legends and symbolism associated with it.
Brighton has many things going for it. Most of all, for me, would be its diversity. The colleges and universities bring many students to the city each year, which means there is always a flow of new people, ideas, and interests.
