One of my favourite online shops Makers & Brothers has a lot to celebrate. Not only have they just turned two, but they are also about to launch their own mini department store in Dublin. The company are dedicated to promoting the best of Irish and international craftsmanship and they do a brilliant job. It's always interesting when online stores move into physical space and I'm very excited to see what they come up with. Makers & Brothers & Others will be a seasonal space dedicated to some of their favourite local and international finds. There will be the beautiful Irish woodwork of James Carroll along with with ceramics by Helen Faulkner and knitted toys by Claire-Anne O'Brien. There will also be a florist selling fragrant winter wreaths and posies, Wildflour Bakery serving up fresh baked goods and coffee, a beauty department run by Aesop, as well as a tiny gallery and bookshop. It all sounds like the perfect excuse to visit Dublin to me.
Makers & Brothers & Others runs from November 14 – December 24 at 5 Dame Lane, Dublin 2, Ireland.
