Day out in Ramsgate

I spent half of my bank holiday weekend visiting my boyfriends mum and Kit in Ramsgate by the sea. I managed to get a few good pics, we visited this amazing junk shop 'Scotts' in Margate. I bought a lot of goodies including a Howard Holt Cat string dispenser, a scary porcelain poodle doll called Edward, a cutesy 1960s/70s print of a girl and a bird on canvas and a box full of vintage ribbons and trimmings. After spending a couple of joyous hours rummaging through 'Scott's' and 'Junk Deluxe (the really cool vintage shop in the basement of 'Scotts') we headed to the opening of the refurbished pier in Margate, there was quite a few people about for this, apparently its normally deserted. We then had a delicious lunch, yummy yummy chips and a mushroom burger in pitta at a seaside cafe, the best fish and chip shop in England is supposed to be in Ramsgate, haven't been yet but its on my list of things to try. Joe's mum Sue then took us to this amazing haberdashery shop in the centre of Ramsgate, it seemed like they hadn't changed their stock for 50 years, amazing vintage trimmings and buttons galore and downstairs a huge den of fabric all at £1.00 per meter I tell thee!
