As part of the Coronation celebrations the Chamber of Commerce held a window dressing competition and a trade fair in the Town Hall. Flints sold souvenir biscuit tins and crackers. “Disgusted” wrote a letter to the Sussex Express complaining that “many firms and individuals are using the Coronation solely as a tool for profiteering and are producing and selling badly designed atrocities.”
