A Wee Bit of Irish at Chicago’s One of a Kind Show

We’re hanging out in Chicago this weekend at the One of a Kind Show and Sale and couldn’t resist sharing a few of our favorite Irish-themed artisans.

If you’re around the Windy City this weekend, take an afternoon and stop by the Merchandise Mart for this enormous show of art, craft, design, and products made with care. Download complimentary tickets here!

Flaherty’s – The Irish Candy Co. | Booth: 9055

Flaherty’s Irish Candy Company – Delicious, handmade candies inspired by an Irish granny… could it get any sweeter! Indulge your sweet tooth with their tasty toffee or go a bit more traditional with their delicious Old World Irish Tea Cakes. Just a word of warning, spending a bit too much time around their sample table could put you in a sugar coma 😉 – website

Earthen Craft Pottery | Booth: 3114

Earthen Craft Pottery – With a full line of Celtic tiles and jewelry, these folks bring traditional beautiful Celtic designs into the 21st Century. Their framed pieces are true works of art… we’re especially fond of the animal designs based on the Book of Kells. Meanwhile, their wearable pieces allow you to carry a bit of Ireland with you wherever you go. – website

Liam Shard Jewelry | Booth: 1110

Liam Shard Jewelry – Here’s where you’ll find us! Liam’s jewelry made from broken dishes — with many antique pieces recovered in Ireland — transforms broken dishes into wearable art. Be sure to ask Liam about the shipwreck shards he found on the beach in County Waterford! – website

  1. I didn’t know about this show. Perhaps if I can convince my husband to go we might be there.
