laartista,

Do you mean Whichcraft in Dublin? That was one of my favorite stops on our 2002 trip.

I bought some Lisbeth Mulcahey scarves on our trip last month that I really like and wish were not all intended as gifts. I'd love to get one of her wall tapestry pieces.

Yes!! Witchcraft in Dublin. They have one large gallery and a smaller gallery at another location. I loved that store. Thank you, I'm going to write it down for future, I think they have a website.

Hi again laartista. The website is http://www.designyard.ie/gallery_intro.htm

We bought some lovely jewelry there in 2002, and would have loved to have bought some sculpture, woodwork, and painting. If only my pockets were a little deeper!

Oh..my bookmark for the site was www.whichcraft.ie. That now leads to the site above. It looks as if whichcraft has changed its name to Designyard.

Thanks so much oopsy. I went to the sitew and loved these ceramic fish mask hangings so I went over to my mask and they are by the same artist. I think I'll order one. Liz Burgess is the artist.

My soft green wool cape I bought in Kenmare. It has a heavy one snap closure at the neck and a hood. I can't wait to wear it when cold weather returns!

A huge stained glass (hand designed and painted) goblet from a store in Donegal Town. Really beautiful especially with the right light. Also bought the typical crystal, ceramic bud vases with shamrocks & a wool sweater (very cute for my 6 yr. old son with lambs across the bottom - from the Harbor store in Killybegs.) But, we especially like the goblet because it is a more unique Irish made item than the typical stuff. It has an old world, medieval feel to it, haven't seen anything like it here.

A large Waterford vase and a couple of Phil Coulter CD's. It was the lovely music we heard when we checked into the Clare Inn our first night in Ireland.

My most favorite items were a few pieces of crystal I bought at the Waterford Crystal place-pieces you can only purchase there.

thought we got everything last visit...but just unpacked...

again...lots of CD's from local groups and hard to finds

lots of candy...flakes, bailey's, guinness dark chocolate...makes good gifts...if I stop eating it!

finally found our toast holder...every B&B uses...now will be great memory of our Irish breakfasts...had to pick up some black currant jelly for all that toast!

also picked up some linens...got into the fuchia and lilly motif...which were both in bloom

got a nice woolen blanket...got to turn up the air conditioning and stuggle up

always get postcards from everywhere...just incase the hundreds of pics we took weren't enough!
