We stopped at our new favorite places around Churchill Square, the main downtown Brighton shopping area. Nicole spent way too much money at Primark (Stefanie would like to add that finals had just been completed and it was actually impressive that we used so much self control as everything is adorable). We spent a couple of hours at stores like Tiger, Primark, and H&M (dying of heat especially in the dressing rooms) before heading to a quaint antique bookstore we had been waiting to go to.
|We immediately thought of the Miss Saigon song... #obsessed|
Nicole could not resist buying a play by J. M. Barrie (the author of Peter Pan!) called Quality Street. The only date in the book is the 1901 copyright, so we think it might be a first edition! If you have any knowledge of how to figure out a book publication date, please comment and let us know. We can't believe it was only ten pounds.
Of course, we had to complete our day out with Pret a Manger.

and carrot cake (which we shared)
We were sad to leave Brighton for the last time (but not as much after the bus fiasco) but we are so excited for our London adventure to begin. We spent way too long packing and freaking out about not being able to fit everything in our suitcases but we luckily eventually did!
So bye bye Brighton and all our wonderful new friends and hello London!
