UNIQUE, creative and locally-produced gifts are available right on our doorstep this Christmas with the opening of an inspired pop-up craft shop in Tullow.
Gifts for All brings together inspired art and craft businesses from the locality under one roof, located at the former Tullow Florist premises on Church Street from now until Friday 23 December.
“We are all local arts and crafts people and have lots of unique gifts available,” said Elaine Kelly of NicAngels Candles in Duckett’s Grove, who is part of the pop-up shop.
“We are so excited about it and have really enjoyed the last few days setting up the shop and getting it ready. We’re really looking forward to it,” she adds.
Gifts for All was officially opened last Thursday by cllr Fintan Phelan, who wished all the artists and crafters well in their exciting new venture.
Among the businesses featured within the pop-up shop are Fairies and Fantasy, Naomi’s Treasure Trove, Corina Fitzgibbon’s Art, If the Wick Fitz, It’s for Keeps, Sliver Lining Art and Triona’s Photography. All have beautiful items, which are incredibly creative and often personalised, offering something that’s not available anywhere else.
“We have some really unique and interesting gifts here and some really big-ticket items that are really worth coming into the shop to see,” promised Elaine.
“When we started to think about having a pop-up shop, we thought Tullow was a great option for us,” said Elaine.
Gifts for All is open from 9.30am to 6pm, Monday to Saturday, and will also open on Sundays 11 and 18 December.
