I’m off exploring this week. It could be said that I don’t get out much these days. And that is probably not far from the truth – I spend an inordinate amount of time behind the sewing machine, making bags.
However, weekends mean markets, and this weekend I am heading down to Cork, to The Fair Alternative on Princes Street, right in the city centre. I found out about this market last Christmas, but was too tied up with markets in Clare and Limerick to venture down to try it out. This Saturday I will finally get to take part.
I’m hoping that the good people of Cork will be out and about on Saturday, and that they will call into what appears to be a thriving hub of artisan goodies, with original artworks, jewellery, children’s clothes, paper goods and now, my bags!
I confess I’m also hoping that I can steal 10 minutes from the stall to head into the English Market, although that is always a dangerous place to visit.
I’ll take a few pictures and report back next week….Share This:
