Welcome to MonaBell's Vintage and Curiosity Shop; a treasure trove of antiques, unique curiosities, vintage and retro finds from Ireland. Here in MonaBell's we specialise in finding the rare and wonderful, so we can often be found at auctions, thrift shops and car boot sales searching for all things beautiful, weird and wonderful :)

We stock objects from most decades - but you can rest assured that there are no reproduction items and all of our goods are genuinely and uniquely vintage. From vintage clothing to cameras, Vintage books to bowls, Vintage cushions to cups - there is something for every vintage lover here at MonaBell's.

We believe in the beauty of rust, the tattered and torn and so never try to "clean" or "fix" any of our finds - they come to you in their beautiful, weathered and worn original state. Any marks, breaks, cracks etc are always clearly pointed out in the item descriptions.

I hope you enjoy browsing in our store and please send us a message and get in touch if you have any questions or comments and we will be happy to chat to you.

We add new items regularly so be sure to pop by again soon :)

Just as described! It was really delayed in arrival (but that was the postal service and not the seller). They're lovely! Thank you so much!!

About

MonaBell's and me :)

My love of vintage started when i was quite young, my parents house is filled with antique and vintage finds which they collected through the years and I inherited the bug from them! The bug even spilled over into my studies! I studied Folklore in University and am a part time Oral Historian. I collect stories and peoples memories and preserve them for future generations. But i am always drawn to material culture and objects which stir a memory in peoples souls.

I am drawn to the sentiment and uniqueness of vintage objects - I believe they all have a story to tell. Some of my most treasured possessions are items I inherited such as my Grandmothers vintage sewing machine and an advertising mirror which once hung in the post office in my home village of Kildorrery in Cork.

I established MonaBell's Vintage in 2012. The store is named after Mona Bell who was the sweet shop owner in Kildorrery when my parents were growing up. I always loved the sound of her name and the way people spoke of her so decided to name my own store after her :) I love nothing more then visiting thrift shops, car boot sales, yard sales and auctions with my friends. I am always on the look out for vintage decor for my own fishermans cottage here in Kinsale.

I hope you enjoy browsing in my store www.etsy.com/ie/shop/MonaBellsVintage If you have any questions please send me a message and i would be more then happy to chat to you. :)
