WELCOMING THE SUN
Hearing the sound of happy people walking around Ramsgate town centre has been totally uplifting these last weeks as the sun has cheered and encouraged everyone to venture out and about. We have had lots of makers asking us to support them and their work and it has been really lovely to talk, look and choose new pieces which will be in the shop over the summer. Our exhibition programme is now in the NEWS tab, click the button below!
We are always on Instagram and our Facebook page - so check in there for daily updates :)
WHY WE DO IT
Really, because we hope it makes a difference, to our town, to makers and artists and to the general sense of the world around us being a nicer place. Nice Things is a cheerful shop and gallery by Ramsgate's Royal Harbour. The shop promotes independent designer/makers, showing some of the best makers in our area but with a national eye so there is always something different and new popping up. We work with highly experienced as well as emerging makers and actively encourage natural products, organic packaging, recycling and up-cycling! You can find out more about our ethos under About.

'If These Walls Could Talk' is by Naomi Watkins who photographs abandoned buildings that are left to decay. "They spark curiosity in me and they make me wonder what lives would have been led inside their walls. I love the way the paint curls off the walls as though it's shedding its past but still has a story to tell, but most of all I love the way nature starts to take over and reclaim its place."
