As well as selling some stuff yesterday, I also did a bit of Christmas shopping. Doing my bit to shop local and support Irish artisans.
First up is a lovely table mat by Louise Hillary of Stone Weavers (no website yet, but you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for enquires). They're basically just flat stones on a carpet base but they look so good. They'd probably be a bit heavy for posting overseas but if you're in Ireland do look her up.
Sweensie. I actually know her from knitting in Celbridge. She has an Etsy shop with some box bags, snack bags and mug cozies. Perfect for Christmas pressies!
