A Store Is Born, Dublin

34 Clarendon Street
Ireland 2
Tel: 353 1 285 7627's insider take:

You'd think these people had read the manual on how not to run a shop. A Store Is Born is closed six days a week. It's situated in an unceremonious garage, and when the shutter does open, it reveals a tiny, dark, fusty interior. Oh, yes, and the owner herself spends most of the week out of the country, at the Portobello Market in London. Take a look at what she's selling, however: 1940s slips, Burberry macs, leather gloves, seersucker jackets, and the best selections of men's vintage cashmere in the city. Pricey, but good stuff.—Pól Ó Conghaile

Open Saturdays 11 am to 6 pm.
