PARADE HANDMADE

Check out our Linkpop page to access all of our various Social Media accounts, Craft Blog, Newsletter Sign-Up Page & more! Parade Handmade has pivoted since Christmas 2018, from being a bricks and mortar craft shop called 'Parade' in Newport Co Mayo. Then the effects of a looming Brexit and now Covid-19, which is supplying it's own challenges have caused this pivot online. Parade

Handmade supports a host of small local craft businesses based in Ireland. Lapanda Designs Jewellery and Parade are both in-house brands supplying the Parade Handmade online shop with hand crafted jewellery, felt hats and quirky and unusual accessories
If you are searching for something special, off-beat and carefully handcrafted then seek out Parade Handmade to find a host of other great local brands from Ireland. Shoreline, Liffey Forge, Ditsy Designs, Mindfulness Matters and many more....
Our customers mean a lot to us. Without them we have no audience and therefore slim purpose or opportunity to develop our work ongoing. We want to give the best we can and ensure you are happy with the products and the service. "You are the most important thing happening on a given day." Follow us on Instagram , Twitter ,

Even to contemplate new ideas is a creative pursuit. I store up inspiring images and ideas in scrapbooks, sketchbooks, and diaries. It's easy to tear a bit of a magazine out or stick in a swatch of colourful material that gives you a buzz. Scribble a note, draw a diagram in case you forget and mega stardom or your patent to fund your luxurious retirement is lost foreever. 📖💡 Dive into my process of gathering inspiration.

Recently, I had the pleasure of a 2-day road trip with my mother. We talked non-stop and laughed unapologetically very often along the way. This hysterical laughting is very true to form in fact and better still, we didn't argue much at all which is not always the case. This trip was a sunny time filled with fantastic stories from her childhood aswell. 🚗❤️ Read more about our adventure and the inspiration it sparked.

Now that was good thinking! This is a touching story of a young Irish woman in Italy wanting to console another Irish friend who was feeling a little homesick over there. She wanted to give her a little feeling of home so she chose a magical Lucky Horseshoe Fairy Door by Liffey Forge. These beautiful handcrafted wonders are created from real worn horseshoes by a professional blacksmith in Ireland.
