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.
