the RDS Craft Fair last weekend for both Christmas shopping and GSoI
journalistic reasons. Maybe I was just more attentive but there seemed to be
more glass on offer than there was the last year I attended in 2012.
seems to be more buyer confidence this Christmas than in recent years and I was told by many that weekend was especially good for sales.
Jerpoint Glass is another yearly staple at the RDS and was looking delicious always with a great variety of colourful vessels and also some decorative pieces. Jerpoint Glass is a family business in Kilkenny started by Keith and Kathleen in 1997 which now delivers to customers worldwide. The new Zest Collection pictured below, was particularly eye-catching.
Well done to all the exhibitors and we hope you all had great successes from your time at the RDS.
