Fantastic Window displays at Estate Agents in Dublin 9

To look at the website in my opinion the image on the left that is on their home page does not do them justice for their fantastic window displays.
They are situated on the N1 Drumcondra Road, Drumcondra in Dublin 9 and cannot be missed by anyone going down that road.
It is better if you are walking of course and I have been walking past with the dog ever since they opened and cannot remember who occupied the building before.  
They had a fantastic display of tea cups and tea pots in 2016 and according to The Irish Times "scooped a gong for Best Shopfront in Dublin City Council’s 2016 annual awards. It’s the first time an estate agency has won the prize which isn’t surprising given the rather mundane nature of the most agency’s displays. MoveHome won the award for its “drop in for a cuppa” themed window. The display consisted of 250 tea cups, recycled from houses the company sold throughout this year, with 20 novelty teapots in the shape of houses and cottages"
Unfortunately I never took out my phone to take a picture but you can see this at The Irish Times website here.

I did however capture this Halloween window from 2016.

Then there was Easter 2017 (left)

Finally below is this very clever display from June / July 17 with pots of paint with pictures of property for sale on them inviting purchasers to "put their own touch on of the houses".

As someone involved with Letting and Estate Agency for many years, I do find this way of creating a window display very good.

It is such a shame that they don't show some of these "works of art" on their website.  I look forward to seeing more as I walk by.
