Barley Sugar: a new way of living in Eastbourne
There’s nothing more exhausting than shopping and not having an area to just sit, sip on some tea and nibble on a scrumptious scone and proudly smile and say: “I did well today!” Such a place does exist. Barley Sugar is the idyllic setting for all your shopping needs; it is the meeting place for UK and Scandinavian designers ranging from baby and children’s clothing to toys and home accessories.
Rather than stock the notable designer children’s clothing brands, Barley Sugar offers trendy kid’s clothing and off-beat baby clothes from designers who lead the way in children’s fashions including Mini A Ture, Bob & Blossom, Little Legend, Scandi Chic, Lille Barn and Toffee Moon. Barley Sugar is a brilliant site for birthdays, Christmas presents and well deserved treats. Their timeless items cannot be found on the high street; their labels are renowned for their uncompromising attention to quality and detail.
If your little girl is a ballerina wannabe, Barley Sugar has timeless ballet outfits and dance clothes for girls aged 2-12 years. These charming Bob and Blossom tutus come in a range of colours to make any little girl joyful: black, silver grey, pink, watermelon and vintage pink. At the cost of £38.95, it is worth every penny when it comes to quality.
With Halloween coming up, every child yearns to play dress up. If you are stuck for ideas, try their fancy dress range. Look at this adorable little Bumble Bee that could sting anyone’s heart with love. Or if your son, like every other boy, fell in love with the magical world of Harry Potter, try this Wizard with a Hat. Each outfit can be purchased within the range of £18 to £36.
Keeping your child entertained can prove to be quite a task. This Melissa and Doug Bug-Catching Magnetic Puzzle Game only costs £9 and could keep any adult busy too. The magnetic wooden game features bugs and insects in a garden that need to be captured by using the magnetic butterfly net. Not only is this entertaining, but also a sneakily creative way to encourage hand-eye coordination.
Barley Sugar has many wonderful antiques and one-off finds to place in your home. Give your home a rustic feel with this enchanting Vintage Confectionary Jar, or this stunning leaf-shaped sandwich-cake set by Clarice Cliff and be THE talk of your tea party! If you can, why not buy the best?
Having two locations in Eastbourne in East Sussex, one location being in Meads Village, their delightful cafe is located on Cornfield Terrace. Have a relaxing breakfast, leisurely lunch, or simply just a splendid cup of tea or coffee to tickle your fancy. This Parisian styled coffee shop, with touches of French chateau chic running throughout, has a menu that would make anyone salivate.
If Eastbourne is a little far out, no worries, almost everything is available online.
