Refocused and better than ever...

The last time you heard from us, was a notice to let you know of our Galway store closing. It's been a very busy few weeks for us here unpacking, adjusting and healing. It all happened so suddenly that it took me a while to take it all in.

Now that I have had space and time, I'm beginning to focus on just one store and I have to share with you that I'm loving it. To be honest, trying to source quirky, different and amazing stock for two stores was becoming increasingly difficult for me and then deciding which shop it was to go in again was taking up head space I felt I didn't have so I'm like a bright new shiny penny - focused on one mega store!

The store is jammed packed with amazing goodies under the one roof.... And we have a mega-shopping trip planned in a few weeks.

I have deep gratitude to all our lovely Galway customers who have called, popped in, sent email's, telling us how much you miss us and the girls and as I keep saying we are only an hour away with an even better store than before so come on down for a visit. We LOVE to see you.

Again deep thanks to everyone who has been so supportive. We are here, we are better and we are focused on being a better store than ever.


Gaiety Workshops All Set For 2016


Remember that workshop you’ve been meaning to do? What better time than the New Year 2016 to invest a little time in yourself?

We have a variety of workshops now running for January to March in both Westport and Galway Stores. Chalk Paint Essentials will cover all the techniques and waxing to give you the confidence to start painting furniture at home.

The 4 Week Up-cycling Course will is a fun fusion of various Decorative Techniques, Chalk Painting and Lampshade Workshop plus you will get a unique project to take home with you. We meet every Thursday at 6pm at The Gaiety in Galway City.

Chair Affair is a popular workshop where you revamp and re-upholster and antique chair to take home. Take note, Westport will be holding a Mother’s Day Chair Affair on March 6th. Book early for this one to avoid disappointment.

Glampshade time! Learn how to make your own Lampshade and you get to choose you own fabric.

If you are interested, we also have a Bring Your Own Furniture, whereby we invite you to bring in a small piece of furniture from home to Chalk Paint and guide you through the revamping process.

We are also hoping to hold a Home & Design Course in Galway, so if you would like more information, please register your interest with This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The Gaiety Decoupage Workshop - Guest Blogger Joules


Last week, as you might have seen from my twitter and Snapchat (username ‘lovejoules’), I had the pleasure to attend one of The Evening Upcycling Courses at the Gaiety Antique & Vintage Store. The Gaiety is a place for amazing antiques, wonderful vintage, unique furniture as well as homeware and lifestyle products. I actually did a shop tour of the Gaiety store in Galway earlier
