The Celtic Shop is aptly named to cover the goods housed within which are from or inspired by a variety of nationalities in North Western Europe. “A lot of people don’t realize that the term Celtic does not describe a nationality but rather a group of people from many nationalities,” says Celtic Shop owner Lauren Lambert. “The Irish, Scots, Welsh and even some from the Isle of Man and Brittany in France are considered Celtic.” This leads to a large population of people sharing many cultural similarities. The Celtic Shop offers many items that all those with Celtic heritage will find instantly recognizable. Various tartans, the familiar Irish Wedding Rings, rosaries, and a plethora of Celtic style musical selections are amassed in this wonderful shop
Music is known for its ability to transmit culture from generation to generation. Celtic style music is especially recognizable and instantly conjures visions of the beautiful Irish, Scottish and Welsh countryside. Music can be uplifting, fun, solemn and it can bring a room full of people together. The Celtic Shop provides their patrons with a wondrous selection of classic and contemporary Celtic albums that you will want to play in your car, in the home, and at work. “The music is a major draw for many customers,” says Lambert. There is always something delightful playing in the shop and you can browse their huge selection of Holiday songs, Pub Songs, bagpipe music and more. If you have not already fallen in love with Celtic music, you will. Celtic style Holiday Music is beautiful and warm, a must have for anyone to play in their home throughout this holiday season.
