Best of 2009

Hey guess what: I Like Local* is three years old! Hitting the big 3 has inspired me to look back at all that's been posted on the site so far and see what's been preoccupying me over the past few years in my past few locations. It's also been interesting to see what posts have made the biggest splash or been most read. So with all that in mind, I thought I'd post a couple of 'best ofs' - the most read and/or most interesting posts of 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 so far. Here's a little run-down of the Best of 2009 :)

Coming up to Christmas 2009 I found myself swooning over quite a lot of the stock in what was then the relatively new Irish Design Shop.
