FIVE&DIME (GIFTS, MUSIC, BOOKS, STUFF – IT’S ALL GOODS!)
Five & Dime is not your normal shop. It is a refuge, a solution, a pit-stop. It is culturally tuned-in, gift savvy and one hundred percent independent/Irish-owned. It will also cure the Christmas fear. That feeling when you don’t know what to get her/him/them or where to get it. It will relieve the dreadful anticipation of battling down Grafton Street in the rain, being elbowed in the ribs and feeling overwhelmed. Or the frenzy of a soul-zapping shopping mall where you just can’t wait for the day to be over. We want you to drop into Five&Dime, pick up some fantastic gifts with the assurance they’re bang-on, and then get back to your friends and family to enjoy the important things about Christmas. Not to spend all day in a whirlwind of confusion, stress or consumer anxiety. Life’s too short, let us help.

Karla Healion (MD Five & Dime): “We want to create a unique shopping experience, a space that is pleasant to be in where you will find all the gifts you need for your brother, auntie, kids, mum, dad, friend at Christmas time and still have money left to go for that essential festive pint afterwards. An oasis of ideas, culture, cool stuff, that minimises the need to battle your way around the city. And while you’re there you might catch a bit of live music or see some art, enjoy the space and feel content.”
