Little Beach Boutique is an independent gift shop and workspace in the heart of the North Laine, Brighton, opened by Suzanne O’Leary in 2014, after turning her glass making hobby into a new career. With a passion for handmade and locally sourced products, we sell our own range of glass alongside a handpicked selection of gifts, accessories, art and homeware.
Our story was recently featured in Psychologies Magazine...
Beginning in the Artist's Quarter on Brighton Beach in 2011, ‘Little Beach Boutique’ was a former fisherman's arch where Suzanne first sold her range of fused glass.
After a flood, Suzanne started to look for a new space, where she could showcase work by other makers and teach other people how to make their own glass pieces.
In May 2014, Suzanne moved to the North Laine, a larger space in the most vibrant and diverse shopping area of Brighton. Our collection now includes handmade ceramics, stationary, lighting and jewellery - and lots more of what we are known best for, kiln-formed glass made in our own workshop.
We continue to source many of our products from local designers as well as searching further afield to offer a range that makes Little Beach Boutique truly unique. For many years we have worked with a family business in Nepal, co-designing our own range of handmade felt animal slippers, which have become a firm favourite.
Suzanne also runs monthly glass fusion workshops where you can learn how to make your own pieces of glass art to take home. We also run sessions for hen parties or team building days - our central location makes us perfect for a group day out.
We are open 7 days a week - please come and browse our collection or see how our glass is made....Or take a look at our online collection and we will gift wrapped and post it to you within a few days!
Proud to be a member of Best in Sussex
