I love this little shop, packed full of wonderful things made by local artists, I have to be careful not to spend to much. I purchased a wonderful piece by local stonemason AH and will definitely shop here again.

Situated in the attractive Old Custom House right opposite the beach, a brilliant place to find local Thanet arts, crafts, gifts and cards, all at sensible prices. You can be sure of a friendly welcome and excellent service from the proprietors and will definitely not leave without making a purchase...
