Folkster is a recent addition to Temple Bar selling women’s clothes, accessories, and homewares. Their second, original branch is in Kilkenny city. It’s my favourite place for a browse thanks to its ultra feminine but modern style. The clothes they sell can be elegant, edgy or give a bit of old-school glamour. Each outfit has a little tag which says what country it was sourced from, and they stock both new and vintage clothes.
Think embellished jackets, sweeping beaded dresses, and cut off shorts. The front room is dedicated to more casual clothing, while the back room stocks formal wear for weddings and the like. This is the perfect place to go if you want a glamorous outfit on any budget, with dresses starting around 60, and creeping up to 400. There are beautiful non-traditional wedding dresses on offer as well. They also have a room filled with girly (but not twee) homewares, gifts, and very dramatic and reasonably priced costume jewellery. Their instagram account is worth a follow as well for gorgeous styling.
