Charity Fund Raiser on Dec 5th

Posted on

Hello all,

We are delighted to invite you to our fund raising event for Philippines charity Preda!

Preda Logo

EVENT: Trad music, beer, Preda merchandise and a raffle for a great cause! Preda has been working with marginalised children and women in the Philippines for over 30 years and they need our help now more than ever (see below for some more details about the charity) so we’ve planned this event…
WHERE: Five&Dime, 62 Dame Street, Dublin 2
December 5th, 8.30pm – 10pm
With a suggested donation of 5 euro at the door (all of which will go to Preda) we’ll give you a beer and provide some brilliant trad music from Dublin-based traditional Irish musicians including Aoife Dermody, Christian Brady, Cormac McDiarmada and friends. If you would like to contribute some more money to this wonderful charity, there will also be a raffle and some lovely Preda merchandise on sale (all money made from these will also go to Preda).
Do your bit this Christmas and have a bit of craic while doing it – please join us and bring a friend or two!

The ‘Before’…

Posted on Updated on

Dublin’s new gifts/music/books/stuff shop is being whipped into shape…

We’ve had a hectic couple of weeks. Lots of bleach. Litres of paint. Fun with hoovers. Sounds like a party right there. Well, we’re getting there.


In a woman’s way-esque photo story, here’s ‘The Before’…


You will not recognise it when you stop in to say hello next week. Vinnie, Claude and Karla look forward to seeing you then.


Five & Dime Launches Next Week!

Posted on Updated on

Design gurus Designist have teamed up with event coordinators/curators Humble Serpent to bring you Five&Dime, a temporary shop that solves dreaded Christmas shopping conundrums with cool, culturally tuned-in and affordable music, books, t-shirts, posters, calendars and home/lifestyle accessories.

Dublin needs an independent, one-stop-shop to take the stress out of the festive season with great stocking fillers and unusual gift ideas at affordable prices. We are centrally located and offer a laid back, enjoyable shopping environment. We also offer a space for shoppers to escape the Christmas hustle for a half hour in our intimate arts/events room

Five&Dime is not your normal shop. It is a refuge, a solution, a pit-stop. It is culturally tuned-in, gift savvy and one hundred percent independent/Irish-owned. It will also cure the Christmas fear. That feeling when you don’t know what to get her/him/them or where to get it. It will relieve the dreadful anticipation of battling down Grafton Street in the rain, being elbowed in the ribs and feeling overwhelmed. Or the frenzy of a soul-zapping shopping mall where you just can’t wait for the day to be over. We want you to drop into Five&Dime, pick up some fantastic gifts with the assurance they’re bang-on, and then get back to your friends and family to enjoy the important things about Christmas. Not to spend all day in a whirlwind of confusion, stress or consumer anxiety. Life’s too short, let us help.

Our staff delivers expert knowledge with a friendly and approachable service.

It’s all goods!
