For those of you familiar with Michigan, you know that the place to get away from it all, is "up north." It does not seem to matter if you go north from Detroit to Alma, or to Copper Harbor in the UP. Up north is where you want to go when you have some free time, and unwind. In 1989, that is what my wife Linda and I did, permanently. We moved from down state to the Petoskey area. Since the move north, I was interested in opening a Celtic shop in the downtown Petoskey Gaslight District. As of October 2010, that has become a reality. I am putting 35 + years of retail experience, management, and a family background and interest in Irish, and Celtic history together. So, the next time you need to get away from it all during your up north weekend trip, or a 10 minute break during your lunch time downtown, please stop in and see what we have to offer.
