Iris Magazine Store and Arnold Park Studios will join Abode for a Christmas market on December 4.
Fashion and lifestyle store Abode have announced their “unconventional Christmas Market” on Sunday, December 4. Taking place from 10:00, the day-long popup in Fumbally Stables will showcase Abode’s latest curation of local and international brands.
Joining Abode this weekend are Belfast/Dublin-based magazine Iris Magazine Store with their latest selection of magazines from Japanese titles to design and travel guides. Abode will also collaborate with Arnold Park Studios, a prolific streetwear brand receiving global recognition for forward thinking graphics and designs.
Abode also promise to provide only Balearic Christmas songs for shoppers, letting everyone enjoy an ambient trip with the likes of “A Spaceman Came Travelling” and “I Believe In Father Christmas”.
With Hen’s Teeth just around the corner from Fumbally Stables with their own line of Christmas merchandise, this Sunday could be the perfect opportunity to get gifts for someone looking for something against the grain.
Abode first launched in 2021 and focuses on curating purposeful international brands and labels. Adobe carefully select brands that represent consciousness, longevity, and authenticity.
Abode creator Jamie Mann previously told District, “I have always loved the idea of owning something that will last for a long time. Even when looking to buy something for myself, I always try and make sure it’s made good quality and as functional as possible.”
“With this mindset, my selection for brands should follow the same ethos; not weighing in on fashions or trends and staying true to their craft, making sure they are as purposeful as possible.”
“Retail attitudes are changing, people are seeing the value of buying a piece that will last longer,” Jamie explained, “The rise in awareness of unethical production is letting people make informed decisions about what they choose to buy.”
This is Abode’s second trip to the Fumbally Stables.
