Shopping that’s a real win-win!
The Craft Shop at Colaisde na Gàidhlig is your first stop when visiting campus and open all year round. Be sure to make room for a visit next time you’re in the area as it’s a haven for true gems and treasures. Home to great variety, the Craft Shop specializes in Celtic jewellery, Gaelic language and music books, local and regional CDs and DVDs, as well as a vast selection of handcrafted items like pottery, woodcarvings, stained glass, clothing, greeting cards, and books from Cape Breton and surrounding areas.
We are your one-stop-shop for specialty items, like stunning hand-woven wear, custom-made tartan clothing and accessories, and our gorgeous collection of newly released capes, all made on-site at the College.
As a non-profit, largely-independent organization founded in 1938, the Gaelic College depends on a variety of income sources to continue on our mission of promoting, preserving and perpetuating through studies, the culture, music, language, and craft of immigrants from the Highlands of Scotland. 100% of funds from our Craft Shop are used to continue our work in cultural education. We greatly appreciate your contribution to the cause.
Our 2023 season for the Shop will be May 15 – October 20 with hours varying.
