Vintage delights at our church street shop

Based in the heart of the North Laine, our Church Street sells high-quality vintage items.  

With our distribution centre in Hove, we’re able to make the best of our supporter’s kind donations. We organise them before sending them off to our shops across Brighton and Hove.  

Looking for something vintage? Make sure you head to Martlets Church Street to browse through amazing items from the 1920s through to the 1980s. The Vintage Church Street Charity shop has everything from formal dresses, to glassware and everything in between.

Here are just some of the items we sell.

Something for every occasion

The amazing staff and volunteers at our Church Street shop always find a selection of items perfect for every season or holiday.

Whether you want that special outfit for summer or winter – you’ll be able to find the perfect piece for every occasion.

Formal dresses
