Pop superstar Ariana Grande spent €269 on knitting supplies while she was in Dublin this week.
After the singer was spotted buying a piñata at a hardware store in Crumlin, Ariana visited Springwools in Walkinstown, Dublin on Tuesday.
Speaking to Adrian Kennedy on FM104, owner of the shop Kevin Spring said: “At 5.25pm, a blacked-out mini bus arrives and five or six people pop out including Ariana Grande.”
“She knits, how cool is that? She walked in the door and hi-fived me and said, ‘Hi Kevin’. She had obviously heard her assistant ringing me all the time.”
“She went in and started picking up wool from all over the store,” he continued.
“Every time I spoke to her assistant Diane, she would say, ‘Everywhere we go people say ‘You’ve got to go to Springwools, best selection of yarn in the world.'”
“She spent €269, two sacks of wool. She bought a lot of wool.”
The store also shared CCTV footage of the singer in their shop on Facebook, and wrote: “Here it is, the moment Pop superstar Ariana Grande enters our humble wool shop in Walkinstown, Dublin.”
“Ariana shopped for 15 minutes and loaded up on Aran yarns from King Cole and Sirdar along with some really lovely traditional Irish pure wool from Sonas.”
Ariana was in Dublin to play three show at the 3Arena, and while she was here she was spotted dining at Marco Pierre White’s restaurant in Donnybrook – where she did something amazing for some Irish fans.
