Last week we told you all the reasons we were planning to do some serious present-buying at the Dublin Christmas Flea, from the huge range of Irish-made products on offer. We can confirm that it was a great idea, and the even better news is that it’s all happening again this Thursday 13th to Sunday 16th. Maybe you weren’t able to make it to the Point last weekend, or maybe you just want to do it all again with some brand new stalls on offer. Either way, here’s some that we’ll definitely be checking out.

Dublin Christmas Flea

29 Bride Street

We love Liz Walsh and Monika Gleeson’s designs on Irish linen so much, we featured them in our July/August issue this year. Liz designs the artwork and screen prints it onto linen, and Monika crafts it into a range of wash bags, fabric buckets, cushions, coin purses and messenger bags. 29bridestreet.com

Molloy & Sons 

Cuddling up on the sofa is an important part of Christmas, so what better gift to give than a beautiful blanket that’s completely Irish? Molloy & Sons are 5th generation weavers based in Donegal, and their blankets are woven in their mill from 100% natural fibre yarns spun and dyed locally. molloyandsons.com

Dublin Christmas Flea

Oxmantown Skincare

Based in Stoneybatter, Dublin, this company produces natural, ethical and environmentally friendly skincare. Their products are made by hand in small batches, so you know that the quality of each is guaranteed. oxmantownskincare.ie

Scéal Bakery 

A favourite of not just Image Interiors & Living, but everyone who frequents Stoneybatter’s Farmer’s market, Scéal Bakery are known for their delicious sourdough and pastries, which always sell out. For the Dublin Christmas Flea, they’ll also have their festive range available, including vanilla sea salt brandy butter, winter spice apple jelly, whiskey apple mincemeat, and their famous Christmas puddings, which they kindly showed us how to make in our November/December issue, currently on shelves. If you’re looking for present ideas for a baking fanatic, they’ll also have wood pulp bannetons and sourdough starter packs. scealbakery.com

Dublin Christmas Flea

Pearl Reddington

Pearl Reddington creates knitwear that combines traditional luxury Irish wool with contemporary designs. She makes each piece by hand, a gift that would be adored by anyone who loves modern design. At the market she’s also launching her new baby range of hand knit cardigans and blankets made from soft Donegal merino wool, as well as a  unisex accessories range of hats, scarves and shawls. pearlreddington.com

Saturday Workshop

Perfect if you have little ones to buy for, father and daughter team Edward and Iseult O’Clery make simple yet original products from locally sourced native hardwoods in their workshop in Sandymount, Dublin. saturdayworkshop.ie

Three Hills Soap 

Lovely things for the bathroom are always a no-fail present, and these ones from Three Hills Soap have the added benefit of being handcrafted from natural products and scented with pure essential oils. They offer different soaps for sensitive, oily, combination, normal, dry, acne-prone skin, itchy, irritated skin, and their solid shampoos replace the need for plastic shampoo bottles, so they’re an environmental choice. threehillssoap.ie
