_ Dennis Connolly called into the shop on Friday to get a little work done. We had a great chat about business in Ireland and the merits of the internet in marketing a new product. So we thought that we would help to spread the seeds.........
There are so many good producers in Ireland who's first principle is to produce quality products (we count ourselves amongst them).
Farmers markets are a great way to pick up great produce and encourage and support those who strive to be the best they can be.
For more about DP Connolly have a look at his site and see where you can test out some of what he produces. Symbiosis

I recently got a pair of original Eero Saarinen tulip stools in pretty sad condition. 1956 design.
I stripped back the bases and re-sprayed them in a cool gloss white and re upholstered the tops in a lime green material.
I love them!
