Needful Things - Door Knocker

Ornate door knocker of Needful Things, an antique furniture and art business, in St James’s Street, Kemp Town, Brighton, East Sussex.


Needful Things is the name of Stephen King novel and film.


The kitsch shop is like a splendid part of the Addams Family mansion plonked down onto the street.


The local council claim that the shop does not have planning permission for the style of front door, (and would not gain it, even if applied for).


There appears to be a hypocritical element in the local council's attitude. In the same street an unlicensed Starbucks has been the focus of protesters as it has been operating for some time despite not having the appropriate planning permission.
