Margate Gallery Shop
2 Lombard Street Margate Kent CT9 1EJ
The sun-splashed Margate Gallery, one of the artistic hubs of Margate's Old Town, is an excellent place to see an exhibition. But it also boasts a superb shop – indeed, you may find yourself lingering even longer here than in the gallery space at the back. The shop, which is open even when the gallery is between shows, is given over to a fantastic range of contemporary hand-designed gifts – stationery, cards, posters, jewellery, cushions, ceramics, prints, you name it – much of it (but by no means all) with a retro seasidey, and specifically Margatey, flavour. The stock changes regularly, reflecting the seasons, the zeitgeist, or simply linking in with cultural events going on in town.
