Hello, I'm Suzy, the owner of Nice Things. I love shopping and poking around places to find interesting, unusual things that just make me want to take them home. That's the sort of space we have at Nice Things on Ramsgate's royal harbour, and the items I'v chosen to put on here, to buy online.
I've gradually specialised in working with independent makers and handmade items, because there's loads of talented people on Kent's creative coast, where I'm based. Their work is combined with others from around UK to give a broad range of high quality, special items which provide unique and intriguing gifts or personal treats. I sell original art, stylish jewellery, ceramics, homewares and accessories. There are gifts at all prices, for women, children and (occasionally!) men. There's gifts to celebrate a birthday, wedding or anniversary. You can find vases, platters, candlesticks and lamps, great women's accessories with scarves, gloves and bags and jewellery in silver, vegetable ivory, pearls and semi-precious stones as well as some fun stuff in shrink plastic and upcycled buttons and beads.
Many items are one-off and being handmade means that no two will ever be identical – you’re buying very special items and our stock constantly changes. I also have work by small ethical companies such as Earth Squared, Artisan Life and Powder. And I love hearing from makers looking for places to show and sell.
