About Us



about brief lives. the eclectic emporium

Brief Lives brings you gothic, alternative and fantasy jewellery, clothing, collectables and accessories to make your life just that little more interesting.

Whatever your interests please take the time to browse through our products and we hope you will find something you like, for yourself or as a gift.




We were formed in 2011.  We have learnt a lot and get better each day. We have great ideas, are ready for anything: for solitude, for hardship, for exhaustion, death. Modesty forbids us to say so, but there are times when we think pretty well of ourselves.

We know we sell some great stuff and we know you want it quickly.  We work with fulfilment centers to ensure we get your orders out quickly and efficiently. We usually dispatch within 24 hours and get your stuff to you within 1-2 days (3-5 days in Europe).  

We have done all that we can to keep you safe online. We use only secure payment providers. We host our store with bigcommerce to keep it safe.  We can't see your passwords and we use SSL to keep you secure.


We love hearing from you. Really. But we don't want to abuse your information.  We absolutely will not sell your details to anyone else and we will keep your data secure. No one wants their information plastered across the internet without their permission. 

To be honest we are seeking a bit of company while we toil away. Visit us on facebook or googleplus. See our stuff on pinterest or Instagram. Read our blather on twitter. Just take a break from your life for a while.  You deserve it, surely.

When you visit us, be aware.  We have varied tastes.  We share what we find interesting, whether it be goth, fantasy, film, science or lifestyle.  As we get to know you better we will find out what you like and give you more of it.  We're nice like that. 


We source our products from the best brands. We do not sell fakes or knock-offs.  We have the items you order in stock.  We don't pretend we can do things that we can't.  We will tell you if there is a problem or we have made a mistake.  Then we will do all we can to fix it. We promise.

We are searching for an ideal image of our own world.  We want to treat you like we would want to be treated.  If you want to return a product, that's no problem.  We aren't going to argue or be difficult. We love hearing from you, so, if you have anything you want to say, or ask, then please let us now and we will do all we can to help.

Our customers love us.  We get great feedback as you can see below. We want to keep being liked.  It's addictive and gives us a warm feeling.  And that's why we will keep on doing all we can to give you a great experience. Sign up to our newsletter to get all our update and details of our offers.
