Fabulous & Friends pop-up in Clones!

Standard

For this weekend only, Clones is transformed from Irish rural town, to festival HQ, as they celebrate their annual Clones Canal Capers Festival.

As part of the madness, the Fabulous creative crew, along with invited friends, are opening their popular pop-up shop once again.

The shop looks amazing!  Open daily this weekend only Friday – Sunday 7-9 September 2012 from 10am-6pm. All the work is handmade in Co. Monaghan.  Participating artists include those named above, along with Liz Christy‘s handwoven shawls and scarves; natural soaps and more from Irish Scentsations, Dorinda McCormack‘s handwoven handbags and purses, and some of my own Kings Forge Glass.  There’s lots more local crafts besides, and a visit is without doubt most worthwhile.

Might be an ideal opportunity to pick up some early Christmas gifts… all handmade with pride, in Monaghan.

Hope to you you there!
