Ok, so it's becoming apparent that I like to shop :-) Well, the planned highlight of this coming weekend for me will be the "Pop Up Boutique" which is due to take place from 25th April - Ground Floor, Film Base, Curved Street, Temple Bar.
As I've only rcently moved back to Dublin I'm not too familiar with what craft markets there are and when they are on and I was very disappointed to see the poor turnout of vendors at my local "farmers market" (innercity).
Anyways... I've come across what is hoped to be one of the best craft markets this city has seen since Mother Redcaps (a market I so, so, so miss) - The Crafty Market (http://www.thecraftymarket.com/), which is also home to the Dublin Food Co-op (http://www.dublinfood.coop/). It's taking place from 11am on 3rd May 09 and the best bit is that it's indoors so no need to bring a brolly!
Located near St.Patrick's Cathedral I will definitely be visiting, both to support fellow crafters (with cash of course!) and to pluck up the courage to perhaps selling some of my own stuff.
Anyone with any further info on similar markets please do pass on the details; I do love to shop shop shop!!!
Relaxing, working, shopping and beading in Dublin...
Regularly venture beyond the Pale - especially to partake in the purchasing of (mainly unnecessary) luxuries at craft fairs/ markets and boutiques... Basically keeping what's left of the economy afloat!
