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.

Sixth Anniversary Weekend Event
Sixth Anniversary Event

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 info@nice-things.co.uk and we will add you to the list.
