More August Bank Holiday Ideas!

The Crafty Market in Shebeen Chic on Georges St, Sunday 1st August.

I love this market, I just don't get to it enough!!! But this weekend I'll be in there like swimwear! The Crafty Market features many amazing independent artists, crafty people and fellow vintage enthusiasts.
One such artiste is our very own brother Barry Quinn, luckily for me and my walls I'm a huge fan and it's great to have access to such creativity close hand.

Check out his awesomeness here:

A champion for the environment, many of Barry's pieces are completed on recycled materials.

Loving the creatures!

If only they all could be mine...

In order to aid in the recovery of the horrific BP Gulf oil spill, each week Barry is offering one painting a week to buy and the total profits will go towards this much needed cause. The guide price is €25 per piece but you decide how much you want to contribute. Above is this weeks titled work entitled "Another Kind of Living"

Airfield Vintage and Craft Market

Get down to Airfield Farm in Dundrum on Saturday 31st to indulge in a little vintage and craftyness...This market is on the last Saturday of every month so if you're not in Dublin this weekend, have no fear, it's a regular.

Every month the market also airs an iconic film and this month features the original society princess, Grace Kelly.
