Old Streets, New Boutiques

… or another store I have never been into…

I hadn’t been on a charity shop spree for a couple of weeks so I decided to have a goo today. I did the usual tour, from Rathmines to Georges Street ( I should try other areas but these ones always give up the goods!) Anyway, I managed to grab a couple of fantastic pieces, (more on that in the next post). As I was dodging the filth, (please don’t strike again,  Messers city workers) I spotted a sign for Mayfly with directions on how to get there. Pleasants Place it turned out, which runs off Pleasants Street and parallel to Lower Camden Street.

Pleasants Place is a pretty old lane way, Mayfly is a pretty little boutique that has only been open for 4 months. It is a mix of really cute (and alternative) gift ideas and clothing for kids, handmade jewellery and alternative ladieswear. The way it is laid out is a mix between a sweetshop and a boutique, with lots of little cubbyholes and baskets filled with gifts and other goodies. The clothes for women are very much all about natural fabrics and bright patterns but it is the kids clothes that really stand out. The ceiling, for example, is hung with an array of tutus resembling giant carnations in loads of different colours. The babies clothes are adorable and range from pretty, ‘Sunday’ dresses to awesome tiny Cradlerock, rock Tees and  babygrows.

These feature mini versions of classic band logos and iconic images; including everyone from Elvis and Prince to Bob Marley and The Rolling Stones, they’re €22 each. This is the Rolling Stones one:

This is a quick snapshot of some jewellery from Courtney Designs. Courtney herself was telling me that a lot of her stuff is packed up and ready for the National Crafts and Design Fair that is happening at the RDS next week, (2nd – 6th Dec).
