Beautiful Folkestone

Folkestone is on the up ... no doubt! Some call it the new Brighton. Come visit and experience its lovely beaches, the pretty harbour, the Harbour Arm restaurants and Champagne Bar in the old light house. And when in the area you should take in a visit to the Old High Street with its amazingly good range of arts & crafts gift shops, vintage clothing and snazzy coffee bars, it's a must do! I look forward to welcoming you. Until then, browse ....

The story of Thalassa…

We have always enjoyed the seaside. The sounds, the smells, the excitement of families and friends and children splashing in the water, that 'brrr' the water's so cold' moment when you first step in for your therapeutic swim. 

The seaside holds a special place in our hearts, our childhood memories and of raising our own family;  kids ice creams melting, building sand castles, making pebble art and seagulls stealing our fish and chips ... vivid memories. So we decided to make the move from city-life to the beautiful Kent coast of Hythe, Sandgate and Folkestone.

Thalassa opened in November 2016, our aim is to offer beautiful products that we would buy but couldn't find with ease. At Thalassa, visitors can create and grow their own coastal home look and feel of living by the sea. You'll find many seaside-related products here from cushions to candles, fragrances to lighting, home and garden decor.

We're also proud to support many of the areas talented local artists including ceramicist - Zan & Me, glass fusion specialist - Ann Blunt, colourful acrylic originals - Deborah Woodward, stained glass by Lin Fletcher to name a few.  Bookmark this site and browse or shop to your hearts content; come back regularly, we're constantly changing what's on offer.

It's been an incredible few years so far and thank you to everyone for the support received.

A warm welcome to you .... Christine and Marios
