EXCITING NEWS! We've just had the maddest news week..
So!....as most of you know, we unfortunately weren't able to get the long term lease on the Dublin store - and we were having no luck finding a good alternative.
We started making other plans, including our new Kilkenny bridal room and a folkster.com office....and now....we've decided to open a KILKENNY VINTAGE KILO SHOP! Yes we're bringing the vintage back - and giving it it's own permanent store here in Kilkenny! :D (This is a photo of it right now, it'll look a lot different soon!)  
...and THEN!!!! We got a call to say our Temple Bar store WAS available - which was compleeetely unexpected. We had made other plans, but talked about it as a team and felt that our time in Dublin had been so amazing, that we'd be mad not to take this opportunity. So...... we're STAYING IN DUBLIN!!! :D and we're adding a NEW DUBLIN VINTAGE DEPARTMENT! <3 (we found a new vintage source, so we're finally ready to restock it..!)
