My National Crafts & Design Fair 2012 in Photo’s

The National Crafts & Design Fair 2012 – RDS Dubin, December 5th – 9th


I popped along to the National Crafts & Design Fair yesterday evening. Due to the fact I’d come straight from work and the fact that my Fiancé was with me … it was straight to the food section for lots of tastings and shopping. We picked up some scrumptious Ballyderrin shortbread, a selection of tasty cheeses from Corleggy and St Tola, delicious Fresh Pesto with Goats Cheese from Knockdrinna, tasty black and white pudding from Inch House, some authentic balti curry from The Curry Sauce Co. and a whopper of a cupcake from Daisy Doodle Cakes. It was a good idea visiting the food section first as we were both (ahem … my Fiancé) giddy from our food tasting buzz and ready to shop the rest of the sections (ahem … my Fiancé … I’m always ready to shop!)

So … after munching our way around it was time to hit the Jewellery, Clothing & Textiles, Ceramics & Glass and Gifts sections. Some of the Crafts and Design people that I know of (and love their work) and those that caught my eye and helped me spend a few bob included Chupi, Amhain Creations, Green Angel, Ale Walsh Designs, Marina Hamilton, Pandora Bell, Pixipots, Eoin O’Connor, Susan Long, Terry O’Brien, The Scullery and My Posh Pinny … but to name a few …

Here are a few … well maybe more than a few pics (click to zoom) from the evening’s ramblings … If you’re free over the weekend and in Dublin, I’d definitely recommend making the trip to the RDS for some Christmas shopping or some ‘Me’ shopping …
