The Cork Vintage Map; various vintage proprietors pictured at Elizabeth Fort, in the city
In the run-up to the holiday season, the various Leeside purveyors of vintage fashion, vinyl records and various other antiquities are banding together to create the Cork Vintage Map, creating a trail throughout the city of retro gifts and goodies.
Writes Eilís Dillon of Records and Relics:
Over the past few years Cork City has become a hot spot in Ireland for all things antique and vintage, and those in the know like to keep it quietly under their hat! However that’s all about to change with the launch of The Cork Vintage Map, a free pocket map which is available in many of Cork City’s cafes, markets, shops and tourist spots.
The Cork Vintage Map showcases the best of Corks Vintage Shopping. On the map you can discover the best of vintage and vintage inspired clothing and accessories, flea markets, vinyl shops, antiquarian books, homeware, gifts and to complete the look, vintage stylists!
Cork Vintage Map is a collaboration between 13 vintage-inspired businesses, the collaboration includes an online map and physical brochure that connect the shops and lists information and tips to finding the best vintage in Cork City centre.
