A Good Vintage – The List

Hey All,

I had a bit of an idea yesterday (Thursday) morning. On Monday, I wrote list of blogs I promised to post this week, and vintage one of them. I deliberately left the subject fairly ambiguous on purpose and what I propose is to create a list of as many Irish based vintage, boutiques / shops / on-line stores that I know of. Having everything all in one place will definitely help me out when I’m thinking of where to shop for something old and beautiful.

Firstly, it’s probably a good idea to determine what the term vintage means. If we go with the Wikipedia description, because I reckon it best represents my idea of what the term means, it states:

“Generally speaking, clothing which was produced before the 1920s is referred to as antique clothing and clothing from the 1920s to 1980s is considered vintage. Retro, short for retrospective, usually refers to clothing that imitates the style of a previous era”.

(NB: Anything newer than 80’s is second-hand clothing).

    In Cork

    Miss Daisy Blue – Unit 7, Market Parade, 51/53 Patrick Street. A tiny store that’s chock full of amazing vintage dresses. I could live in there The owner is super nice and really knowledgeable too.

    Positively Vintage – 10 Church Street – Full of hidden gems and quirky items, like vintage Halloween costumes and bins full of leather clutches. A serious amount of digging through racks is required though. Prices are really reasonable.

    On the internet (but based in Cork)

    Turquoise Flamingo – http://www.turquoiseflamingo.com for clothing and nice bits.

    Elsa and Gogo Boutique – http://www.elsaandgogoboutique.ie Vintage bags and some really nice jewellery.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for your recent comments m’dear! I very much appreciate this post and the links, as I’m always missing out on these markets and things. My wallet appreciates it less, but we must buoy the economy!

    What a fantastic list! I have one more to add! I bought a fabulous leather skirt (tailored by the company so the length is perfect and comes above my knee) and red polka dot dress online at http://www.fluorescentelephant.com/
    They do pop-up shops too.
    It is definitely worth checking out.
    Love the blog!
