We want to expand our team! If you're enthusiastic about retail and great design, we'd love to hear from you. We are looking for a junior purchasing assistant and Christmas websale and retail assistants. Interested? Click on the above links for more details and get in touch.

 

 

It's finally here! Susan Jane White's new book Clever Batch is now on the shelves and it looks brilliant. She's one of our fave writers - healthy but completely irreverent, super tasty and the cause of our pretty serious freezer envy. Thanks to her, we're done with plastic boxes and only use glass jars in the freezer these days. We can't wait to get stuck into her new recipes.

 

 

Our Fear Mná totes from Nessa Finnegan fly out the door. Available in yellow, royal blue, navy and a very snazzy hot pink.

 

 

Sometimes we love staying put - slippers on, cosy and warm (we can dream!). Scented candles are great for chilling out whatever space you’re in. We love having them on the go in the shop. These ones from The Handmade Soap Company are especially gorgeous. Handmade in Slane, Co Meath with soy wax and essential plant and fruit oils like lavender, grapefruit, mint and rosemary, they are all-natural and free from SLS, Petrochemicals and parabens. And relax...

 

 

On a grey day in Dublin don't let the rain put you off. Pop in and see us! ☔⛈️🌂

 

 

It's time for a tidy up in the garden. These gorgeous gardening gloves are totally up to the job. Not just snazzy, they’re made from hard-wearing fabric that doesn’t stiffen on drying and are padded for extra protection. There’s a stretch mesh between the fingers that helps regulate temperature and improve dexterity, and a wrist strap ensures they stay on snugly, stopping soil getting inside the gloves. No excuses!

 

 

We love being right in the centre of town and the great reflection mashups our window gives us depending on where the sun is.
