The Grand Opening

Hey all, 

Just a little note to confirm our official launch of the Crafty Alley Shop will take place in the shop at 22A New Street, Killarney on Saturday, 10th May. The shop opened on the 19th March and so far we have an amazing response. To thank people and to meet some more friends we have decided to have an official launch.

It will be a fun filled, event packed day for kids and adults. There will be balloon modelling and face painting for kids plus a puppet making workshop to name a few of the kids events. For adults there will be workshops and demonstrations throughout the day including candle making, jewelry making, scrapbooking, cardmaking, stamping, painting and drawing. 

That evening from 6pm-8pm there will be an invitation only reception with some music, drinks and nibbles to celebrate the opening of the shop.

Of course there will some very special, once off launch offers on that weekend for all.

Please email me if you are interested in attending any of the workshops or the evening reception as numbers are limited for these events. For all other events and activities on the day just turn up! 

More details to follow. 

So spread the word and looking forward to seeing you there!
