This gallery is located with The Custom House. It is a small gallery packed with reasonably priced art and crafts. Their stock is varied and good quality. A lot seems to be locally produced. The owner is friendly and helpful. Most galleries in Ramsgate are closed during the week so this is a convenient place to come at that time.

Unusual objects and paintings done by many local artists and craftsmen. Need to keep gouing back as shop's contents always changing.

Nice things is a great place to go for locally made treasures. Suzy, the shop owner, is knowledgeable and helpful. She has a genuine affection for the artists who create her wares - and it shows - they offer beautiful things for her to sell!

The shop is in Custom House, a lovely, historic, building. It also houses the Ramsgate Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) Shop, a cafe, and there is some tourist information available. The RNLI Shop is delightful. The staff is kind and friendly. The building is an architectural gem and would be worth a visit even if it were empty!

We had a great experience at Nice Things - a lovely setting, a wide assortment of quality crafts created by local artists, and a shop owner who is passionate about her trade - who could ask for more?

We found this little shop in Ramsgate, down by the harbour. Suzy has lots of beautiful and unusual gifts. We found some lovely little wooden beach hut models, each with an alphabet letter on. We couldn't resist getting them for each of our grandchildren. Unfortunately there weren't enough of the right letters to complete each name, but that wasn't a problem. Suzy ordered the missing letters from her supplier and posted them onto us. Great service. We'll certainly be visiting again when we're in Ramsgate.

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.
