History and Background

Eamonn aka “The Boss!!”

Bargainshop.ie began as a concept one very late night, in my tiny freezing office in the attic of the tourist hostel we use to run. In 2009/10 the world seemed to be falling apart, people were losing jobs and everyone was terrified to spend money. We were no different. Between looking after backpackers and clearing houses for people, with our trusty Transit, we were making a poor living. Then, even that dried up as the recession hurtled on. One day I was asked to clear a house were the furniture was too good to be dumped. I offered to buy it instead. We stored it in the garden shed, after a week or so we had sold it through the paper.
A concept was born.

 

The Team

"J" at work

The garden shed, 16 x 10 foot became our warehouse, repair room and sales floor. As if by magic our tempestuous shed transformed and teleported to our shop today.

Sean

Sean our workshop manager, who arrived in the hostel five years ago was supposed to be only staying the weekend on his way to Ballina!! He ended up running the hostel. After we closed it in 2013 he joined us in Bargainshop.ie. He is happiest, surrounded by drills and compressors while stinking of saw dust, wearing his trade mark surgical mask and crooked glasses. Armed with his drill, Philips screwdriver in his side pocket, he is usually driving a belt sander across some pre-loved furniture, before tenderly applying paint or varnish and nursing it back to life.

Magda

Some place along the line during a house clearance we picked up Magda and she decided to stay. As you may have guessed she is Polish and has the advantage of also speaking Russian!! We think she is actually from Vladivostok and pretending to be Polish!! She now manages the sales staff and shop.

Cześć, mówimy po polsku. Zadzwoń do nas!

Dean

Not long after, she was followed by Dean, cool, calm, strong as an ox. Nothings a problem and the customers love quiet efficiency. Oh and sorry girls hes taken..
