Visited Nice Things for a second time during our recent visit to Ramsgate. It sells some really lovely things but I felt some were a little too pricy. I appreciate the craftspeople have to charge for their time as well as materials but if they lowered their prices slightly they would I believe sell more. Even despite my comments this... More

What a find. Right next to the Queens Head on the harbour front is this little shop full of lovely gift ideas, mostly from local artists. All budgets are catered for. There is an amazing range of Jenny Duff placemats and coasters as well has handmade pottery from Mike Child. Don't leave Ramsgate without a visit!

A little hidden inside the council building we always make a point to pop in when it's open Lovely hand made tickets of the local area by local artists prices are what you'd expect for proper craftsmanship however there are little gems which can be bought as little nice (not tat) souvenirs for a good price

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

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.
