Product Reviews

“Delighted with the tote bag I got last weekend at the Kinsale Arts weekend, it's very well made. The ladies at the stall were fab and told us how the idea for the bags came about and the story behind the sayings. I bought one for my sister too and she loved it!”

“I purchased some masks from Saoirse EHD during the Covid pandemic. They were of excellent quality and lasted me for the duration. I have also purchased some lovely greeting cards for special occasions, delivery was prompt and nothing was damaged. I would recommend this site to anyone who is looking for a present of something a bit different.”
