Vibes and Scribes is perfect for all the creative people coming to Cork with 2 stores, one for books and one for arts and crafts. Both stores allow the imagination to run wild whether it be the creation of an art piece or delving into a new book. Vibes and Scribes has a uniqueness to it that not all stores have, it gives that personal touch shown through their customer service and their passion for literature and art. One thing I love about Vibes and Scribes is that their book store is separated into new books and second-hand books, they allow you to sell your books for a couple of euros or a discount on another book. Perfect for when you are looking for a book that is no longer being sold.
