Here’s what you can snap up in Søstrene Grene stores right now

Here’s what you can snap up in Søstrene Grene stores right now

Lots of people were buzzing about Penneys reopening this week, but we've had our eyes set on the windows of Søstrene Grene.

With their range of beautiful yet affordable homewares, all with a pleasingly Scandi touch, Søstrene Grene has long been a favourite of IMAGE staff. Back when our office was close to their Dun Laoghaire store, we would excitedly report to each other when new stock had landed. Many a lunchtime was spent wandering through their aisles, usually ending p at the till with a full basket, despite only going in “for a look”.

As a shop that doesn’t sell online, the pandemic has meant that I haven’t set foot in one in over a year, and I’m pining for the little bowls, simple candles and minimalist textiles I would pick up in there.

The good news is that with non-essential shops now officially open since May 17, we’ve had a sneak peek at what’s in Søstrene Grene stores in George’s Street Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Blanchardstown, Cork, Limerick, Belfast, Newry and Bangor, and we’re already compiling a shopping list in our heads.

Living space

Whether you’re looking for some dried flowers to brighten up a windowsill or simple storage baskets to help tackle clutter, there’s plenty to get excited about.

Kitchen

Søstrene Grene reopening

I love picking up bits and pieces for my kitchen in Søstrene Grene, especially things like tea towels, napkins and small bowls, and they haven’t disappointed with this range.

Craft supplies

Many of us have taken up or dedicated more time to crafts like knitting and painting over the past year, and there is plenty in the range to nurture these hobbies.
