Rummage, a pop-up chic vintage fashion shop, will be selling designer and luxury high street pieces for ten days only with all proceeds going to Cystic Fibrosis Ireland.

This innovative fundraising initiative is the brainchild of local Shrule woman, Mary Daly. When undertaking this project, she combined her interest in fashion and vintage clothing with her desire to fundraise for her daughter’s illness.

The shop is aptly named rummage as customers are invited to explore the range of clothes, shoes, bags and accessories. The high-quality pieces are new or barely worn. Shoppers can pick up pieces from Irish designers like Deborah Veale and Fran and Jane, international brands like Escada and Paule KA as well as high street shops.

Mary Daly is a retired primary school teacher who taught in Askea Boys NS for many years. Her daughter, Maria, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when she was six months old and currently lives in Dublin. Rummage will be open every day from Wednesday October 2 (excluding Sunday), from 10am to 6pm. The shop is located at 36 Dublin Street, Carlow.
