Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: Nice Things specialises in handmade ceramics, glass, textiles and jewellery by makers and artists in East Kent (and a few from further afield!). Our lovely light space also hosts a gallery area showing bold, contemporary and local art, changing exhibitions each fortnight. We love colourful, quirky, beautiful and one-off pieces, but always make sure we have things under £5, so that people don't need to feel afraid to come inside, explore and enjoy!
Useful Information: Bathroom facilities, Food available for purchase

Custom House is a unique historical building and is a pleasure to visit, one not to be missed for people who appreciate architecture and character in buildings. It provides the ideal venue for all kinds of events such as craft fairs, fetes, bazaars etc. It has a lovely cosy restaurant/cafe which serves snacks and light lunch meals. There is a Tourist Information section which is very useful and helpful in supplying information about present and future events. In all, it has a lot in the building and is popular and well frequented.

We find this a good small shop where we could buy gifts to take home and keep or give to friends. There is a very wide select, always something for everyone's taste..

Hidden away in the Custom House is this little treasure trove of unusual gifts! Many hand-made items and something for every taste. Well worth spending time browsing and Suzy will make you feel welcome too. This is a gift shop - NOT a hotel. There are many nice bars and restaurants along the Harbour Parade as well.

Such a cute shop. Everything is made by local crafters, many gorgeous items made by talented people. You have to buy something! The lady serving was very friendly too. Definitely worth a visit!

Really cool local shop with lovely "nice" things (couldn't resist). Especially the chilli bottom-burning jam.
