The iconic red brick facade of Vibes & Scribes, located at 3 Bridge Street, will be well known to most Corkonians but gracing a stamp of it’s own means the building, and business, will soon be recognised by an international audience.
The preserved building, built circa 1880, was an obvious choice for An Post, due both to the architectural interest of the building itself as well as the beautiful window display and it’s contents.
Vibes & Scribes has been trading in the city for over 23 years, and while the Bridge Street premises began life as a bookshop, the business has since diversified. Vibes & Scribes on Bridge Street now specialises in craft supplies, wool, fabric and millinery supplies, while the new and used bookshops are located at 21 Lavitt’s Quay.
We are so honoured to have been chosen as one of only four shops featured on the stamps. Thanks to An Post and all our loyal customers.
The Irish Shop Fronts stamps are available now from most post offices and online at irishstamps.ie.
