Today I wanted to share details of a very exciting event!! As many a reader of Floralesque will know, I believe in supporting Irish Designers and love buying handmade pieces. They mean more especially if you get a chance to talk to the designer and learn more about the brand and the pieces. But, it is very rare that you get to talk to the person who actually made the item… well, there is an amazing Irish Designer Sample Sale coming to Galway and you will get just that opportunity.
I have been to events like this in Dublin and it is fantastic to get to talk to the designers and also get the opportunity to pick up some truly unique pieces that you may not otherwise be able to. There are often pieces that are not for sale online, and often the prices are less than if you were to buy from the main collection.
The event is on in the beautiful 5 Star G Hotel in Galway on Friday March 02nd and Saturday March 03rd and I am really looking forward to it!
