Let's Be Frank

I think we all need a little more frankness in life. Don't you think? Well, you should because frank is a funky applied art store based in Whitstable and is full of creative whimsy. The products that they sell are a bit hodgepodge, from stationery and hand printed art works to egg cozies and baby booties, but each item has one thing in common; they're all handcrafted one at a time. No mass production there. And now, thanks to their new online shop, we can all enjoy the great finds of frank stateside. I took a quick turnabout the store last night and here's what I found. Just imagine what awaits you there.
