On the 16th March I popped down to one of my favourite retro shops in Thanet. Lou had just relocated Showtime Retro from King Street, Margate to Arch 15, joining forces with Ivor and Thomas who were also based in Arch 15, overlooking Ramsgate Royal Harbour Marina!
Arch 15 is located on Military Road on Royal Harbour in Ramsgate. Its located right along the edge of Ramsgate Harbour under the brick built arches where the views pretty much consist of boats and seagulls.
Showtime Retro specialise in Mid Century Lighting and Furniture, Industrial, and Vintage Curiosities. There is constantly a range of new and interesting stock coming through the doors and in storage. Every time I pop in there is more stuff I want haha! She has a great list of contacts and is happy to source items, however unusual.
This place is a treasure trove of retro goodies, floor to ceiling and objects hanging from every possible place! You can easily get lost in a corner whilst trying to reach something random that you have spotted lol, its happened on me on quite a few occasions. We love popping by and sitting outside with Lou, Ivor & Thomas in the sunshine with a coffee and biscuits. Sometimes you can hear Ivor playing on the piano inside. There are always plenty of people rummaging around, chatting to you about the place, it seems to draw in such a friendly crowd and during those hot summer days, this place gets packed!
Lou is fantastic to get in touch with for any enquiries or pop down and visit Arch 15 at Ramsgate Marina to see for yourself.
