About Us

Our shop, started by Anne McKenna (nee Gallagher) from Ardara, County Donegal, has been a landmark in the local community since 1980. Originally started as a wool shop, it has progressed into a full service Irish gift store. Started by Anne as a retail outlet to sell her hand knit sweaters, it soon flourished into so much more. All of the shoppers walking into her shop for the first time were welcomed by ladies sitting around a table drinking tea and getting knitting lessons from Anne ... what must they have thought?

The shop is now run by Anne's son-in-law Pat Durnin and Anne's daughter Nancy. The shop has won many awards, including the prestigious Main Line's Best Gift Store! Stop in and see what all the excitement is about. We'll continue to add more quality items to the website, so be sure to visit often. You can reach us using our convenient contact form, or by
