Today we collected my coast paintings here - the Gallery is drop dead gorgeous.
If you ever need a gift or treat, I would recommend here.
The original wooden shop fittings, shelving and drawers are groaning with unusual hand crafted objects, including funky sheep and fish.
Plus suitcases, for those of us that like a rummage.
A bowl of water and dog biscuits for hounds.
A bowl of sweeties by the door for humans, containing parma violets.
Smarden itself is picture postcard lovely, with other shops run out of people front rooms.
Just like being at home...
