The Irish Claddagh ring shows two hands clasping a heart. The elements of this symbol are often said to correspond to the qualities of love (the heart), friendship (the hands), and loyalty (the crown).

Our Irish/Maryland flag featuring the Claddagh ring was popular last year so we created another, more traditional option. We’ll have this new design on garden and house flags, magnets, and door mats. 

Look for our Irish flags this Sunday, March 6th, at the Annapolis St. Patrick’s Day Parade. We are proud to have been asked to hang our flags on the viewing stand at the end of the route. Hope to see you there by the Market House! 


It was a busy winter for us and we’ve got 14 new designs and 50 new products to show for it! USA-themed items will be available to our buyers in our spring catalog and also on our website for retail.

It’s almost here! From March 31–April 1, The Annapolis Film Festival will showcase over 70 films including 20 documentaries, 18 narrative features and over 40 shorts. Joe Barsin created the look for the festival and as Art Director, is helping to develop the promotional materials. Passes and tickets on sale now!



Owned by Ellen Lunay and Amy Fresty, HERE. a pop-up shop is a temporary boutique that features unique apparel, jewelry, art, photography, accessories and home goods. Be sure to visit their next pop-up location beginning March 4-13 at 1811 McGuckian Street, Annapolis. Look for their SHOP LOCAL Float in the Annapolis St. Patrick’s Day Parade this Sunday!

Fun Fact

The word March has nothing to do with the homonym, which means to walk deliberately. Instead, the name of the month dates back the Roman calendar. March was named for Mars, the Roman god of war.
