If you are struggling to find the perfect gift, relax, and give some Brixton Pounds. The lucky receiver will then be able to choose their own gift in over 200 local shops and eateries. And, to be honest, that’s much better than the dodgy sweater or socks you were going to joyfully wrap for them.
The notes come in four denominations, £1, £5, £10 and £20, otherwise known as Garrisons, Dengs, Bowies or Szabos (after the famous Brixton Faces on the notes). You can get the notes from issuing points around Brixton such as Morley’s (the menswear till) or 20 Storey in Market Row. For a full list and location of all the issuing points click here.
