We always come here for a look around when we're in Thanet. It's a great idea to allow lots of small traders to display their wares in one place & you can find some really interesting & unusual things to buy.

As there about 200 stalls, it is not a case of popping in and picking up a quick bargain. Prices vary according to the stall holder and it all depends what you are looking for. But I am sure you won't come away empty handed!

This was advertised in a local magazine so we decided to try it. Parking is very limited but a local bus passes the door. The place is not impressing on first entering but I would recommend going up to the first floor café and looking...More

Been in here a few times and there’s always so much to look at and so many great items... it’s nearly impossible to leave empty handed. There’s a cafe upstairs as well so you can have a nice bit of tea and cake in-between shopping...More

Lots of different stalls with a huge variety of antique, vintage, retro, upcycled and craft items. Some stalls did look a bit like a table at a boot fair, but they were vastly outnumbered by the many other interesting stalls. It was very quiet when...More

What a hidden gem - great shopping for the unusual, antique and vintage items. Lot's of different stalls packed with interesting stock and, after spending hours having a rummage, I always return home with some bargains :)
