Here in Little Beach Boutique, we're not *exactly* technologically savvy but StreetHub is an app that we can get on board with!
StreetHub have hand-picked the best of Brighton's independent shops, boutiques and cafes (and we are delighted to have been chosen!) and developed a website and an app that enables users to browse the places nearest to them, find out what beautiful and wonderful wares are available from their local independents, reserve what they like and come in store to pick it up!
In this way, StreetHub combines the convenience of online shopping with the unique experience of going in store and meeting the owners and makers and discovering new boutiques and hidden gems at the same time!
Launching this week, they have put together a useful map of some of Brighton's finest which can be used as a shopping trail, with fabulous cafés to pop in to for a coffee stop along the way.
Our Picks of Brighton and Hove ...
If you're exploring some of StreetHub's recommended finds, don't miss some of the North Laine's finest, such as Present in the Laine and Edited on Gardner Street, or Fair on Queen's Road.
And an independent trail isn't complete without a wonder in to Hove to visit Imi Loa and Dowse on Western Road, with cake and coffee in Marwoods's to keep you fully charged!
But make sure there is time to pop into see us here in Little Beach Boutique, where you will always find something new!
StreetHub in Brighton is going live this week, with a downloadable app to guide you through your shopping experience - we hope to see you soon!
