‘Tis (almost) the season, and hip, cool stores are popping up faster than you say, “wrap it in craft paper, please.” Much like the Late Late’s Toy Show, there’s something for everyone, and you’ll no doubt be able to find just the thing for those niggly people-who-have-everything. If you devote enought time to the project.

This week, news wafted in that Makers & Brothers, curators of achingly cool and creative (and surprisingly affordable) Irish wares have launched Makers & Brothers & Others, a “tiny seasonal department store” that will feature everything from a small florist selling winter posies to a mini organic beauty zone and cute caf? serving up brilliant 3FE brews, as well as, of course, their incredibly well-curated edit of brilliant Irish craft. They’ll be at 5 Dame Lane, D2, from next week.

Next up, one of our favourite design shops, Designist, has teamed up with event coordinators Humble Serpent to bring you Five & Dime, an independent pop-up shop that’s just opened its doors on Dame Street. The store is cheerfully promising to solve all Christmas conundrums with “cool, culturally tuned-in and affordable” gifts, including music, books, t-shirts, and homewares. Staff have been specially trained in the dark art of gift finding.

And if you picked up and devoured our latest issue, you’ll know that Industry has opened a second store on Drury Street, packed to the rafters with stylish finds and complete with a handy gift-wrapping service.

Much as we love shopping online, it’s brilliant to see so much Irish craft and design on show, and it’s just the encouragement we need to keep our shopping local this season. Well, that, and the fact they’re all within easy walking distance of each other.
