Avoca Mill

I just wanted to do a quick blog about my most favourite shop in Ireland ..... Avoca. Since we were little our holidays every summer have taken us to Ireland. We have been going for about 30 years now. And part of that ritual has been a trip to one of my most favourite shops in the world!! A shop where you can refresh your wardrobe, restock your pantry, revamp your home, revitalise your garden...all under one roof....HEAVEN!!!!

Avoca actually have several shops around Ireland now, and I am sure many of you will recognise some of products creeping into our shops over here. The very kind people at Avoca have allowed me to use some of their photos on my blog to show you all.

If you are local to me in North Yorkshire, Castle Howard, Browns of York and Genivieve of Helmsley are stocking some of the Avoca range.  Otherwise their website is www.avoca.ie
