October Poster

Another totally new and fresh design from Sarah Bowie this month.

"I was really inspired by the early Ballet Russe posters for this one: the colour, movement, energy and fairy-tale feel, especially the amazing costume designs by Bakst, just feel right for this time of year.  I had intended to do a much more stylized piece, but every 'proper' drawing I did seemed to lack the energy of my original rough sketch.  So in the end, the rough sketch won out, and I left her exactly as she fell on the page, scars and all.  And I like her just the way she is."

Christmas Cracker Market 2012

For the last two years we have joined forces with Block T for a bumper market in December over in Smithfield and then we've come back and done our final market of the year in Newmarket just before Christmas.

This year, however, there will be just ONE Christmas Flea Market, taking place in Smithfield. The 2012 Christmas Cracker is going to be our biggest yet with over 120 stalls over three days in Block B just off Smithfield square.

It was an amazing weekend last year, loads of craic and loads of really great creative stalls, a real testament to Dublin (and Ireland's) Independent trading scene. We found out that theres a lot of people who when given the choice will gladly step away from Grafton st. and do their shopping elsewhere. We certainly did anyway.

So Applications for this years stalls are now open and will remain open until November 15th. Price for the three days is €150 and if you need to team up and share the days with some friends, by all means do.
