Things Celtic provides the Austin community and visitors from afar with an eclectic offering of traditional and contemporary Celtic products. The boutique-style shop features Scottish, Irish, Welsh, Cornish, and English goods, most imported directly from those countries and some produced by local artists. An eclectic shop with more than 5,000 sundries lining its shelves, Things Celtic houses everything from books and clothing to local and international Celtic artwork. Peruse the book collection to pick up such titles as Great Irish Heroes ($20.95) or The Haggis: A Little History ($8.95). The store also features a variety of flags ($9.95) that are great for proud home displays or draping over a downturned face after the loss of an important soccer match.
This shop of Celtic curios has proudly displayed its heritage for more than 10 years. The store remains active in the local Celtic community, and it even hosts local and touring Irish musicians on the first Sunday of each month. In an effort to stay environmentally conscious, customers who spend more than $50 will receive a free Things Celtic tote bag, which can be stuffed with groceries, a summer reading list, or a series of increasingly tiny tote bags.
Fifteen Yelpers give Things Celtic an average of 4.5 stars:
Things Celtic recreates a vibrant version of Ireland and Scotland through an extensive collection of handmade and unique imports. A library of literature feeds historical, culinary, or cultural appetites, and traditional Irish and Scottish teas transport flavors from across the Atlantic. Silver jewelry bends and weaves in the shape of traditional Celtic knots, crosses, charms, and frames surround Ogham artwork, a rare and vertical form of writing from ancient Ireland. Things Celtic also helps friends passionately display their heritage through flags and traditional and custom-made kilts. The hotbed of Celtic pride also takes part in local events, such as music festivals, beer tastings, and seminars on James Joyce's pop-up books.
