Tamp & Stitch – Scarlet Row, Temple Bar, Dublin 2
Preparation for this week’s fashion fix was also my coffee fix … you’ll know why when you read on. Tamp & Stitch can be found in Temple Bar, Dublin and has been around for the best part of 10 months now. It’s a mixture of everything I love. Clothing, Jewellery, Art and Coffee … and food on certain evenings too! It’s a Boutique Café run by Veronica Trevisani, Neil Barry and Paul Taylor. Walking to Tamp and Stitch you will be greeted by a large window and built-in bench, head inside to the aroma of freshly brewed and independently roasted filtered coffee, grab a high stool, go laze on the comfy couch or head back outside to the bench to watch the world go by. After your coffee, take a step back into the boutique and go shopping!
The selected clothing, jewellery and art on display in Tamp & Stitch change all the time and all the Designers and Artists are known personally by Veronica, who has met each one along her world travels. When I was there the designer clothing, jewellery and art available were, Lovely Mon Story (Mon House Ltd Uk) – brilliant looking handprinted t-shirts, sweatshirts and the funkiest ceramic jewellery, Masque, Heh Pilgrim – funky funky funky, De Loup – An Irish Designer – handmade individual pieces that have an edge about them, Defy Jewellery – unique brass and silver pieces, Italian Wooden Jewellery by Raul Gubert and Family, Paintings by Sean Rushe and Photographs exhibited and for sale by Darius Mierzejewski … seriously if I wasn’t saving for my wedding, I’d have bought the lot … ladies and gents clothing/jewellery/art … everything! Not forgetting the kiddies they have a permanent range of Giokit designs – which are the coolest idea – clothes that kids colour in themselves … on purpose!
I really love this place and the idea of space that offers so much … Boutique, Café, Exhibiting Space and most recently a Dining Space – check in store for more details but I can tell you the next dining experience will be brought to you by Gruel Gorilla and involves Burrito’s and Beer … so count me in!
Tamp & Stitch open Tuesday to Saturday and can be actively found on Facebook here
