    how will you survive without all this precious stuff?

  2. Heather Moore says:

    I want that whisk come what may… I know a good whisk when I see one!

  3. Priscilla says:

    Yes T, you have a point… I already want to take some of it back.

    H you can have the whisk as long as you tell me some of your troubles, and so help me feel a little better about my own life!

  4. Lara Hill says:

    Eh what size are them shiny shiny shoes?

  5. Lara Hill says:

    Hey over the shoulder satchel bags were all over last Saturday’s Guardian fashion page

  6. Priscilla says:

    Ahah, yes they are all over the mainstream shops too… well, by this I mean the one shop I went into had them. Come and get it in September!

  7. Priscilla says:

    Oh and the shiny shoes are a small size six… very fetching. From the Royal Hospital Sale of Work….

  8. Sona says:

    I want the yellow cushion!

  9. Lara Hill says:

    YAY I’m five and three quarters!

  10. Fiona says:

    I’ve always had a soft spot for Eyeore – my inner self can identify with him. May I have him, please? Pretty, pretty please?

  11. Priscilla says:

    hey fiona, this aint no ebay site.. no pre-ordering allowed! and will you really want Eyeore, when you see him in the flesh? We shall see.

  12. Emma says:

    Hi Priscilla!

    It was really nice meeting you and Irene today. I’m really looking forward to helping out

  13. David says:

    Hi Priscilla. Look forward to visiting the Help me shop… and I know it is sure to have unbelievable!!! bargins. venue coming soon (aaahh!) I know that so well…. best of luck. David

  14. Priscilla says:

    Hey! David, it will be great to have you visit… I keep on talking about how great the Clonmel Junction café experience was so hopefully Dublin lives up to it! Yes indeed venue coming soon, the stress is something else but all may be sorted and revealed soon! priscilla

  15. Priscilla says:

    And Emma… I don’t seem to be able to reply to people’s comments in the right order… but yes it was lovely meeting you yesterday. It will be great to have you helping out, what with your Phibsboro Oxfam retail experience and your selling vintage patterns on etsy and ebay…

  16. Tracey Messenger says:

    Hey Priscilla
    I’m only sorry I live on the wrong side of the Irish sea.
    Plus my feet are too large for your shoes (more ugly sister than Cinderella …)
    However, I do like the bag that you consider to display strange taste.
    I should point out (to avoid future disappointment) that the Queen no longer looks like that.
    BTW, there is a brilliant, small, flea market in Place d’Aligre in Paris, where you can rifle through people’s discarded family snaps (which is actually desperately sad, so don’t go there in a melancholy mood).
    Hope the shop goes well.

  17. Priscilla says:

    Hey Tracey… thanks for the message and for the Parisienne tip…. I went to an auction in Dublin recently, and it had that feeling about it too, with people’s discarded possessions on sale – sad but strangely interesting… Will this happen to my stuff etc.?
    p.s. you are the first person to like the bag.

  18. merike says:

    Hi Priscilla, I recognise the cooking pot and ‘these sound much better than they look’, but the rest of the stuff must be hiding in your room! I actually like ‘these sound much better than they look’, my only worry is: can i get them? Can I give you advice that you yet haven’t heard from me:)

  19. Maret says:

    so i am the second person, because i am loving this bag! loads of good stuff here by the way. me as a fan of flea markets would totally like to buy everything. i just need to remind myself that i won’t use most of them and don’t have any place to keep them at at the moment. the shop idea is really not a bad idea, kind of courageous act. i can only imagine making a shop like that just for me (i sell and i buy). that’s how selfish a flea market fan can be. so i think you are like a hero to me now. because you are a selfless fan… great job!

  20. Priscilla says:

    Thanks for your comments Maret! I am starting to struggle, as I realise this stuff is going to go for real! People are going to have to convince me to let go of some of it…
    Glad you like the site. Keep going to those fleas! and feel free to post up any recommendations you have for great ones to visit…

  21. Priscilla says:

    hey merike…. the rest of the shop stock is “hiding” in my mother’s (big thanks to her)… and yes I am sure you will be able to help me with something in the shop…

  22. Catherine says:

    I agree, sometimes your taste is a bit off!
    The bag should go
    Who designs these things?
    Who buys them?
    Who has a revelation?
    Who takes them home again?
    Who indeed………..

  23. Gail says:

    Hi Priscilla, look forward to helping you out next week, love the site and lotsa the stuff!

  24. Priscilla says:

    hey catherine.. you are getting me thinking…things to talk about over the 3’oclock cuppa maybe.. who has a revelation, indeed?
    Thanks for all your help today! designer par excellence!

  25. Priscilla says:

    Hey Gail, looking forward to your help! and to find out what you like and why.. one man’s junk is proving to be another’s treasure alright. So much so that I want some of it back before I have even let it go…

  26. sharon says:

    hey priscilla! queen of the chipped dessert plate… who’s your photographer? nice pics you got goin’ there…. very objet d’art!

  27. Priscilla says:

    Hello! glad you like them… the photographer is the same queen of the dessert plate… hope you will find some treasure in the shop when you visit.

  28. Savannah says:

    you have my personal permission to come visit my mothers home and sell off every piece of old treasure you find§ In fact I beg you, no better woman Priscilla!

  29. Priscilla says:

    This might be my future employment!

  30. Joan thorpe says:

    Hi Priscilla. I can’t wait to have a good gawk…see you during the week…the posh plate tickles me fancy…

  31. Priscilla says:

    Which one is the posh one? Looking forward to your visit!

  32. Monica says:

    Priscilla, I’m gutted I’ll be away during your HelpMe! week . . . but I’ll recommend it to (some of) my friends. What is that “Little Prince” thing? Did you not know I love the Little Prince? And I never fought with you about the heating in the office . . .

  33. Priscilla says:

    What a pity! A show without Monica… The Little Prince thing is a purple cushion with three yellow stars. which reminds me of the cover of that lovely book… you could send one of your friends in to try and win it instead.
    No indeed it was not you who fought with me about the heating! It was in Kildare Street. Hope you are well!

  34. Karl says:

    I want, no, neeed the gouache.

  35. Priscilla says:

    Well it is there waiting for you, on the shelf labelled… “The Make and Do Never Ends with You!” Come get it!

  36. grace parnell says:

    Hi …..Will see you Sat ! is the whisk still there ? Badly need one ! All looks great!

  37. Priscilla says:

    Yes indeed it is! Someone else had her eye on it but maybe she has forgotten so you may be lucky. Great you can come…

  38. Ciara says:

    Really enjoyed the visit today – as did my daughter. She wears her ‘Super Girl’ badge with pride and has put all her CDs in the blue box. A lovely relaxing time spent in your shop, very much enjoyed the tea and the chat, Thanks!

  39. sharon says:

    hey missus! we really enjoyed the show this afternoon… hope you’re bearing up under the strain of having to keep so many peeples entertained… love my homemade lemonade glasses… looking forward to next year’s al fresco dining season already with these x

  40. Priscilla says:

    Hi Ciara, It was lovely to have ye there. Thanks a million for the great home made baking… they did not last long! Anyhow very glad the badge and box are a hit…

  41. Priscilla says:

    Hi Sharon, I enjoy it! Was great to have ye there. Those glasses will be lovely for summertime. Might have to slip one in my handbag when I visit…

  42. Daniel says:

    Loved it so different it was nice to have coffee and a chat before work, I dont suppose you still have that Posy Simmonds book that was in the shop cheers!:)

  43. Priscilla says:

    Glad you liked it! Will post up some photos soon…. Yes actually I do have it – I am giving it a read and you are very welcome to have it after that.

  44. annie says:

    Hi Priscilla, pictures of the shop PLEASE. And by the way, lovely dinner for new years and thanks for the new music

  45. Priscilla says:

    hey Annie, your wish is my command! There are lots of photos of the shop up now… yes great seeing you all on New Year’s, much fun.

  46. jacinta says:

    Love the photos particularly the one which makes the
    boiled wool skirt look like a wonderful sculpture..looks like it is flying through the air..like an enclosed angel..it is the magical possibilities of what the image is…that intrigues.

  47. Priscilla says:

    Thanks Jacinta! That’s lovely to hear from an artist. Your show in Cabra was great, more exhibitions in 2011 I hope…. x
