Ian Cramp… Does anyone remember a shop on the seafront in St Leonards on Eversfield Place in the early 70’s that used to sell all sorts of weird an wonderful things such as cheesecloth shirts,
Afgan coats, josticks and all sorts of other paraphernalia
Camilla Lake…. Priti Novelties
Caz Simpson… I do, I bought lots of things there. Was it called Pretty Novelties or Priti Novelties. The smell as you walked in was lovely. I think it was run by an Indian family. Ah memories
Ian Cramp… petunia oil I think…..
Caz Simpson… Of course! It was so popular then. I loved that shop, everything was affordable.
Jo Turner… and often sandalwood 😊 can smell it now mixed with the raw animal skins of the Afghan coats.
Judie Struys… I bought an Afghan coat from there. It had fur all round including the hood. It smelt terribly goaty. Even patchouli oil couldn’t mask it. I wish it was still open. I’d quite like a cheesecloth shirt.Remind me. Did it sell jeans and a brand name called Simon or something like that? Or have I made all that up?
Mandy Wright… I lived a few doors down from this shop and remember it well . There was another clothes shop next door ish? omg ! Yes it was Simon, I can remember having t shirts ( with big collars) and ‘simon’ written on my left boob , well flat chest as it was then ,lol x
Angela Frances Gardner… Yes I used to buy loads of my clothes there in the 70s a great shop with a lovely Indian couple, it was at Eversfield Place near Warrior Square
