The Waterford story started back in 1783, when brothers George and William Penrose founded a crystal manufacturing business in the Irish port of Waterford. They were extraordinarily adept at their chosen profession, crafting crystal so pure that they quickly found themselves the city’s largest exporters, sending their wares to locations around the world. Inside of a century, the company folded under financial constraints, but things don’t end there. Another century later, in 1947, Waterford was reborn at a site just a (proverbial) stone’s throw from the original location. And though the location has changed, the dedication to fine craftsmanship and unparalleled products — from crystal glassware to fine writing implements — is just as strong as ever.
Father’s Day is less than a week away so check out this event if you’ve waited until the last minute to shop. It may be easier to list the designers that aren’t part of this mega-sale, which includes enticing wares from nearly two dozen top labels. Adidas Porsche Design Sport golf clubs, Vilebrequin beach towels, Jack Spade messenger bags, Sheaffer pens, Y-3 sunglasses, Cristiani dress shirts — the list goes on and on.
