Shopping

  • The £300 hot tub you didn’t know you needed

    Come and get it while it's hot, it's the £300 hot tub you never knew you needed! Yes you read that right, you really can snap up your very own personal hot tub for £300 at Crawley's County Mall.

  • Christmas hampers from Sussex businesses

    Skip the super-pricey Harrods or Harvey Nicks number and instead choose a hamper from a local indie. It's like making your own, but without the days of faff.

  • Subscription boxes from local indies

    Everybody loves getting treats through the post, and even more so if they're from a fab local indie. We've picked the best subscription boxes in Sussex - guaranteed to make you smile.

  • What’s Cooking? Will Devlin, The Curlew

    It's been quite a year for Will Devlin, from being named a Chef to Watch for 2020 by the Good Food Guide to opening The Curlew in Bodiam. We caught up with him to talk all things foodie, local and zero-waste.

  • Halloween interiors – no tricks, plenty of treats

    Halloween approaches and, quite frankly, this year, we'll take any excuse for a party. Invite five friends over and dress up your house with these interiors trinkets.

  • Autumn boots

    It's the season for kicking up piles of leaves and splashing through puddles, and we've raided Sussex's best boutiques, plus a few haunts further afield, to find the ultimate cosy footwear for those post-Sunday-lunch walks.

  • Autumnal knits for work, walks and – well, whatever

    There's a chill in the air so Muddy's hurtling to ultra-chic Sussex boutiques to stock up on knitwear for post-lunch walks, breezy commutes and just slobbing around the house in style.

  • Pimp up your desk

    Give your home office, home school or just the kitchen table the industrial, functional look with a handmade lamp from a creative Sussex couple.

  • Back to school

    Left the back to school shopping til the last minute? Uh huh, us too, but there's still time so instead of heading to the nearest supermarket and buying up whatever's left over, we're doing our shopping Muddy style and patronising these fab local, and not-so-local, indie labels and shops.

  • Kids’ summer clothing edit

    Kids' summer wardrobe incoming! Whether they've shot up during lockdown or let's face it, you just fancy splurging on gorgeous pieces you'd like to wear yourself, we've picked the best kids' clothes for the season from Sussex and beyond.
