The markets will be running from 10am- 6pm.
Focusing on contemporary design and culture through art, homewear, lifestyle, clothing and music. The first installment of the market features Soft Boy Recordswith a limited edition range of merch; photography from Donal Talbot, a fashion collection from Kyle Cheldon Barnett , a record fair with Optic Music, prints by Kate O’Laughlin, and lots more to be announced.
For Valentines Day, the Book Resort will deliver a luxury box, beautifully presented and filled with a brilliant new book, delicious “Love” chocolate, a vial of “Love” bath salts, & a handwritten card with roses on the front.
To finish it off, the box will be scattered with rose petals.
The cost is EUR30 and there is free delivery in Ireland – but hurry!. All suppliers are Irish.
May I give a shout-out to Cork illustrator Jason O’Gorman [Dynamite Studio] for a recently steady stream [on his twitter feed] of everyday and not so every day scenes in Cork city. They capture something about the place. I love them. I know you don’t do this sort of thing, etc../
Hopefully this enamel pin that I made might be of some interest to your more discerning readers. They are available on my Etsy store, along with several other prints that will no doubt have widespread appeal.
I was producing rock and metal themed t-shirts for kids with my partner (the big Irishman behind GrandGrand.ie), when I hit upon an idea to do one for mothers which would celebrate how much they rock one of the toughest jobs there is.
Our particular heartbreak came in the form of our son’s cancer diagnosis almost two years ago. Blood Bike Dublin is run and staffed on a 100% voluntary basis and very single Monday morning, regardless of weather conditions,Michael our blood biker arrives at our door and brings our son’s blood samples to Crumlin for testing. Because of this our son gets to go to school like every other 5 year old,
In an effort to give something back to our friends at Blood Bike Dublin and help them to continue doing what they do, we will be donating all of the profits from the sale of this special t-shirt to them.
Screen printed in Irishtown on 100% cotton and are available to buy for €20.
