Taking the Plunge

26 High Street Whitstable Kent CT5 1BQ

A gift and souvenir shop with a retro, kitschy feel. As well as homeware and jewellery, cards and beach-themed souvenirs they have plenty more offbeat items, traditional toys and the like, with handmade goodies and all sorts of quirky surprises. The homeliness of this little place is complimented by the friendliness of the plunge girls, Shelly and Nicola, who are often accompanied in the shop by their dogs Ron, Stan and Millie. Whitstable has plenty of arty souvenir shops, but this one is our favourite, a real gem with something interesting on every shelf and genuinely unique crafts to be found.
