About a week and a half ago we went to the Jacob Street launch.
First things first I would like to apologise that it has taken so long to get something online about it – I hate missing deadlines but things have been a bit crazy here recently.
I had written about the launch a while back and was looking forward to seeing what the shop had to offer.
We were greeted at the door by the lovely Maureen Collins, who actually works for some companies that I also work for in my 9-5 and a lovely spread of champagne and tasty treats.
After chatting to a couple of people and getting our photograph taken for the Ulster Tatler we took a look around the shop, the shop is a decent size and they have used every bit of space for their items – which not only means that there is a good selection of items to browse through but you also get that more laid back sort of indie shop vibe, which I like, especially when it comes to vintage items.
Jacob Street seemed to sell most things, from clothes to furniture and from ornaments to jewellery and all at varying budgets.
My favourite piece was probably a ceramic toad (pictures below), had I not have been going somewhere after the event there was a very good chance I would have taken him home with me!
I thought the event was well attended, the staff were lovely and I was very glad to be asked to come along.
If I am ever near that part of the Lisburn Road again I will certainly be popping in, and I suggest that you do too!
Here are a selection of pictures from the event, sorry about the quality of them – normally my phone is more than capable of taking good pictures but with the amount of professional cameras about I didn’t want to have my phone out for too long!!
