anyone else from smelly auld here?

Well for those who are from here or who have been here you'll know we have charity shops (2nd hand) all over the place. So were lucky in that respect. Sadly one of our best Fabric stores (Trimmings) has been closed down and turned into a scummy Centra (like 7/11 to Americans).

I cant be the only one on here Smiley

no, you aren't alone in the internet world - they're all too busy on thumped for anything else though.

Trimmings just moved across the keys, dude! no worries. however, being from foreign i have to whinge that dublin certainly leaves something to be desired in the charity shop department. not really their fault, but it sucks to find a shop full of clothes from penny's for twice what they cost new.  Tongue

i'm wondering about craft show or fairs? i'll be visiting dublin for a few days in 18 days (but who's counting) and i was hoping to go to a craft show or two, it's a pity that we'll not be there on a weekend, but are there any coming up? 20 feb06 through 24 feb?

i plan on visiting hickeys and perhaps the wool shop in bray; i hear there's a sewing centre nearby, too. and then i have also already pencilled in my appointment at Crown Jewels thats on henry street i think? i heard there's a fabric shop nearby there too. Trimmings might be something to track down, in addition to L. M. Ruban, Sheehy fabric shop.

the last time i visited, i kind of remember a suitable amount of charity shops, oxfam and the like. i just googled it and got many hits, perhaps not closeby to you, though.

Nope you are not the only one Kate! I was thinking myself where could I find an Irish forum, and crossing my fingers that it wasn't in with the UK...  Cheesy

Hi there,
I'm a new Irish board member. I agree, Ireland is totally pants for fabric shops. Who wants to go into Hickeys to be patronised or ignored.
Murphy Sheehys in Castle Market near George's Street Arcade aren't bad though, very helpful staff and you can hit on the odd unusual bolt of fabric every so often. Not the cheapest but what's cheap here anymore?!

me.....

I mostly knit so have precisely two outlets: the Wool Shop in Bray and Springwools in Walkinstown....though it's probably a good thing that it's an effort for me to get out there, as i spend too much money on wool..

i went to the wool shop in bray! my mother and i were on holiday, and we went there, and to the little place around the corner with fabric and buttons! i spent 36 euro on yarn! but i got real irish wool yarn, from those sheepies i saw in the fields! and my motehr got a pattern she's been looking for for a long time.

i felt just like a local on that shopping trip!

i completly agree! nearly every time i go in there i come out in a bad mood cuz the staff are so unpleasant! i go in there quite often (waaaay too often really!) to get wool to feed my knitting addiction, its not like the place has a really amazing selection or anything but springwools is quite out of my way, i havent been there yet but am planning on going soon as im on spring break (woohoo!) i have been to the wool shop in bray before but again its a bit far away. i found a fantastic website a while ago that sells craft supplies, i make christmas cards too so i found it great for cellophane bags to display the cards in. its dublin based but i think they ship all over europe:) http://www.craftsupplies.ie. they have a forum too. oh if only they sold wool!
