irish handmade

a big Thank You!


Well... it's been a whirlwind couple of weeks.

The site has launched, an etsy account opened and I've become a social media user.

I have to say the support and feedback for Irish businesses on social media has been amazing.

The #irishbizparty hashtag on twitter is a great tool to network and build your contacts. My Wednesday's are never going to be the same again.

If you are an Irish business and you are looking for contacts/advice then 9.30-11pm on a Wednesday on twitter is the place for you - @irishbizparty

Facebook has also been very supportive especially my friends and also a page called Christmas Gift Ideas Ireland.

I am delighted to say that I've had 5 orders in the last week and there is a Garden Centre interested in stocking some items..,

It's all very scary and exciting...

Thanks to everyone for their help so far.

First Market Stall experience

Well, I finally took the plunge and had my first market stall experience today at Langton's Hotel, Kilkenny. It was the and was mostly for young parents selling on their pre-loved items that their kids have outgrown.

There were a few other stalls with beautiful  handmade items also so these markets are well worth a visit for people looking for gifts or to kit themselves out with all the essentials for a new arrival.

We set up the stall, complete with a bowl of Cadbury's eclairs which went down a treat :)

I was delighted at the genuine interest and feedback I had on my stone art work and it was great to see which ones were most popular. "Baby steps" and "Young love" proved to be the most admired.

We had a great day and will definitely be regulars on the Kilkenny art and crafts trade fair circuit.
