THE eye-catching new Edel Staunton Millinery shop front is turning heads.
Award-winning milliner Edel Staunton has officially opened her new shop on Main Street, Foxford.
On hand to perform the official opening was the cathaoirleach of Ballina Municipal District, Councillor Annie May Reape, and the chief executive of Mayo County Council, Peter Hynes, along with Edel's family and friends.
Edel decided to take the plunge and move her business, where she has been working from home for a number of years, to the newly renovated shop in Foxford.
Her headpieces are very popular with mothers of the bride/groom, wedding guests and brides. She also makes hats for the races and has had several winners and finalists in Galway, Roscommon, Ballinrobe, Leopardstown and Cheltenham.
Only recently one of her pieces was spotted in the parade ring in Aintree on Grand National day.
Edel is one of the few Irish milliners to have an International Hatty Award and is a member of the Craft Council of Ireland.
Along with a large range of headpieces, she is also now stocking handbags and accessories to complement your outfit.
A hat hire service is also available and she is building the collection available to hire.
