In Whitstable there are many pretty shop fronts, this deli was my favourite, and the little Portugese style custard tarts,oooooooh!
Even though it was supposed to be a “no buying/work holiday”, I never switch off. Quite a lot of the clothes shops were using vintage furniture & fabrics for their displays, I can’t go past a WhiteStuff without looking in to see if any of my stock is displayed.
No we didn’t go in for a pint (I can’t stand this chain), however how fantastic that the Art Deco cinema is alive and busy.
We did however go into this shop. My favourite in the town, I wanted to buy nearly all of the furniture for our house as the old wood, sand blasted metal, rusty metal, shabby paint on the sets of drawers and cupboards……….I love cupboards!
As we only went in the car we couldn’t fit anything big in,(although I did find the side of a fishing boat on the beach and managed to wedge that into the car), I could only buy some fabric and a massive bag, repurposed very cleverly from a Sanderson sofa cushion cover.
Oh and on a Saturday there is a wonderful Farmers market, this young man came out with this beautiful bunch of garden flowers (lime green, my fave colour), fragrant with fennel.
