Sailors

Wedged down a little passageway connecting The Mint to Cinque Ports Street, this tiny lifestyle shop is (very) loosely nautically themed, from seashell-infused soaps from the Jurassic coast to gilded oyster shell candles and brightly coloured enamelware. Artisan food – including Sailors chocolate bars, made locally by Rye Chocolate – printed stationery and soft furnishings make this a good place to find that gift that you may not have come across elsewhere.
