Pop Up Shop – Red Stables

On Friday we decided to do our 1st pop up shop. It was held in the cottage market, Red Stables, St Annes Park Clontarf. What a beautiful venue for a for a market. The Red Stables as its is now called was the stables for Lord Ardilaun in St Annes Estate. The Cottage Market, is held inside the actual stable room where some of the original horse stalls are intact.

St Annes Park is very dear to my heart. I grew up in the area, playing in the fields and around the follies as a child. As a Mammy I bring my children here to the park and playgound and to Olives for an Iceream treat!

The Red Stables has become the focal point for many locals. Grabbing a coffee or treat after their morning stroll, visiting an art exhibition,(which I’ve had several here) or popping into one of its markets.

Although this Friday was a bit of a miserable day weather-wise there was a constant trickle of people visiting the market. I was armed with hand sewing, magazines and a sketchbook, ready for a quiet day! Not so my legs ached by the end of the day.

But it was worth it to meet so many wonderful visitors and crafters and some canine companions too!
