Sunday 6th November - 11:00am to 4pm - Handmade & Vintage Fair

We have a dozen brave makers due to come out and show work, which includes: Geraldine Brown teddies; Dawn Wilson coastal gems; Nina Gillis papercraft; Kaye Kerwin's sweet pod; Terri's Kitchen in Thanet; Come What May textiles (lovely decorations!); Amanda Bathurst silver jewellery; Soapy and Seahorse Glass.

Sunday 4 September: 10am - 5pm : Handmade & Vintage Fair
We've teamed up with the Addington Street Historical Fair for this month, so that we can make a really big event! The committee organising the Historical Fair has worked really hard to make it a great day, so we thought bringing along the Handmade & Vintage Fair was a good plan. We have around 20 sellers taking part, with everything from jewellery to cakes. There are a host of vintage stalls as well, free music all day, a free pirate hat workshop for children, Punch & Judy at midday and 2pm and lots of other things going on, as well as all the shops open down the street. Come along! And if you are interested in taking a stall (up to Thurs 1 Sept), visit //www.nice-things.co.uk/index.php/20 to download a booking form.

Friday 24th - Sunday 26th - 11:00am to 5pm - Sixth Anniversary Weekend
Nice Things, The Custom House, Ramsgate
Nice Things is six years old on 25 June so it seemed the perfect chance to have a celebratory long weekend! We're running three days with 10% off everything in the shop, with other offers as well.
Nice Things has become entirely about handmade items, with the majority from East Kent makers and artists. It has made it possible to manage the very small space and it is hugely beneficial to be able to provide a way for makers at all stages of their career to show and sell. We love having things on show that make us smile and have a sense of fun!
If you would like to join our mailing list, we will send you and invite for our party on Friday 24 June from 6 - 9pm. Please just email email@example.com and we will add you to the list.
Monday 2nd - 11:00am to 5pm - WildThings Family Day with the Handmade & Vintage Fair

Arranged around two free shows of GRASS, a dance/play for young children, we have lots of stalls, food, free workshops and some ECCENTRIC EXPLORERS to take you on an adventure trail around this lovely traditional park. There is a play area and various activities for children, so it's a great way to spend this bank holiday Monday.
