When Christmas here before you know it I've started my gift shopping early. In looking for a wallet for my husband I found a wonderful store in Ann Arbor Michigan that sells clothing, jewelry, and gifts from Ireland (as well as some lovely finds from Scotland and Wales). I found the wallet, but in doing so ALSO found some Harris Tweed items. I'd been wanting one of the purses for the longest time but didn't want to wait weeks to get one from overseas.
The bag arrived just days after I ordered it online - and I was so pleased with it, after using it I bought a second one! They're top quality, with a detachable shoulder strap if you prefer and several regular pockets and zippered pockets inside for your essentials.
The best part was the customer service. The hand woven Harris Tweed fabric I selected on one bag was out of stock and Stuart the owner of Real Irish called me directly to see if there was another I'd like substituted. Not too many online stores go to that extra effort (though he got one in a couple days later so I got my first choice).
The order also included some wonderful samples of Irish Fragrance. The unisex fragrance Inis has always been a favorite since my last trip on business to Dublin.
For quick and online shopping for gifts - the experience could not be beat (now back to the sweater selection. . . . :-)Their travel website has all our tour information for tours.
