Today Dublin Pride‘s official pop-up Pride store officially opened its doors at 41 Clarendon Street.
The shop is selling everything from flags to books to bow-ties and they’re also stocked up on the fabulous Dublin Pride Guide and the latest issue of GCN.
It’s also your last chance to pick up a piece of history with Together For Yes holding a final blitz sale in the Pride shop tomorrow.
They have a limited supply of t-shirts, key-rings, coloured and black repeal project jumpers.
Festival manager Eddie McGuinness says “we have everything from pride flags to bunting to tutus! We also have handmade crafts as well that really represent what Pride is all about; diversity and inclusion.”
The great news is that all profits from everything sold in the shop go directly back into Dublin Pride Festival.
The Pride Pop-Up shop will be open daily until July 1st.
