This self-styled ‘vintage wonderland’ in Temple Bar is nearly 30 years old, giving it a more authentic claim to that title than most. A veritable treasure trove, their stellar collection of 1970s and 80s mens- and womenswear keeps their choosy clientele browsing the floaty floral dresses, winningly worn denim jackets and other in-vogue items in their ‘trend-led’ room.
Owned by Irish stylist Blanaid Hennessy, Folkster is an enterprising outfit with a celebrity following – vintage pieces from their own label, Shutterbug, are worn by people like TV presenter Angela Scanlon and actress and author Amy Huberman. As well as day and evening wear, shoes and accessories, they also stock their own line of lifestyle items and homeware.

Starting out in a basement on South William Street, Dublin Vintage Factory now calls the trendy Smithfield area home. This is where hardcore vintage shoppers come to spend – inside a 1950s garage they sell previously owned clothes in bulk at €20 a kilo.
