This was inside another building and could easily be missed but worth looking for and visiting, I bought several items for christmas presents the only fault was that the service was very slow, in fact I almost walked away and gave up at one point

I always manage to find an appropriate gift at an appropriate price at this delightful well stocked shop. Suzy and her staff are really helpful. I invariably take my visitors there.

This is a lovely, friendly little shop that stocks hordes of little gifts, many of them handmade locally I believe. Great ideas and some nice cards too. Worth a visit as part of trip along Harbour Parade or on the way to Ramsgate Main Sands.

No one even spoke to us and chose to talk to amongst themselves instead - not nice to be looked through and totally ignored - we just walked out !

Hello, I just saw your review. I don't know what happened and whether I was in the shop myself or it was the person who works with me a couple of days of the week, but we make a habit of always saying hello to people and thank you when they leave, whether they have bought or not. It does... More

What a fab shop this is! One thing I love about it is that just when you think you have seen everything, you turn around and find that there is another drawer or corner with more wonderful & unique items available for purchase!! It is a great little shop for providing an outlet for items lovingly crafted by local artists,... More

Hello! What nice things to say, thank you very much. Reviews help us a lot, so thanks for putting this up. It's a bit of an eclectic mix that I have on show but it reflects the many varied makers and artists around the area and it's great when people find the variety a bonus. Thank you. More

A great little shop for residents and holidaymakers alike to shop. The range of merchandise represents the best of local crafts people at very reasonable prices.

Tucked away by the Ramsgate Tourist Information Office opposite the harbour is a wonderful shop. Despite its small size, it has a fantastic selection of great gift ideas (for myself and others!) at very reasonable prices. We loved Ramsgate Harbour, but on out next visit, we will definitely head for this great little shop again, too. It's great when you... More

Hello Julia, I'm glad you found us and that you enjoyed it. Do say hello when you come again to the town. We are tucked away a bit so having new people discover that we're there is really important and putting something on TripAdvisor helps so much. Thank you! Suzy More

Made a special trip to Ramsgate to buy a special gift for a special friend. Lots of lovely things that you want for yourself. nice range of quirky, beautiful and fun and the best bit is that they are made by local people. Other businesses make note. We don't want something you can buy in John Lewis - we want... More

This is my favourite shop when visiting my mum in Ramsgate. Every time I have a peek in there nothing is the same- it's great and unique and I love the shop assistant she always gets chatting to you, so friendly! Every time I 'window shop' I end up with something. My favourite is hung on my wall... Can't wait... More
