Out with my friend today-back down to Thanet to investigate Margate and the junk shops I read about on the internet. We parked behind Dreamland, the amusement park. I have used Kim Klassen layers on my photos to make them look kind of seaside and old. Thank you again Kim Klassen! It is a funny place. Very run down in the main town, then you get to the 'old town' and it is all posh shops and, dare I say it, rip off vintage. Some of the vintage shops had very nice stuff, but all pretty expensive-already chosen and curated by someone else so there is nothing left to find. Not my favourite type of second hand shopping, but interesting. The best thing was the architecture, sign writing and the wandering somewhere we didn't know.
Clock tower, without a bus, large car or anything else in front of it-timing is everything!
Plastic sign. Cheerful and clear and I like the metal fish suspending it.
Beautiful cast iron street sign.
This is New Cross Street, a home from home.
Nice letters. £43 each. Didn't come home with me.
