My name is James Slack. I spent my formative years as a preteen in the little German Hamlet of Herman, Missouri thinking I was 100% German. Whenever I saw a picture of a kilt I thought it would have been the greatest thing in the world if I had been born Scottish instead of German. I even loved rainy cloudy days with a wee nip to the air. Fast forward to my late thirties, my aunt discovered our Scottish genealogy. I was elated, especially when she first asked me to accompany her to some Scottish events.
I was hooked, became a volunteer, joined a couple Scottish societies and eventually became president of one of them. I chaired a Tartan Day Event for a couple years. I used the experiences to soak up all the Scottish Culture, history and lore my brain could hold, though I’m afraid a wee bit leaks out now and again. Then the opportunity presented itself for me to take an early retirement and I, along with my wife, Karen Heitzman, a Bonnie Ginger, purchased The Thistle And Clover. The store had changed hands from the original owners, and its merchandise base moved away from its Celtic origins. We took over on August 30, 2013 to keep the store from closing its doors. We cleaned, restocked, and brought back only Celtic merchandise with a lot of help from friends and special attention from the original owners of the store.
The Thistle And Clover is about all things Celtic. We currently carry a variety of merchandise from Scotland, Ireland and Wales. We would eventually like to bring in merchandise from Brittany, Isle of Man, Cornwall, and Galatia to encompass merchandise from all seven Celtic Nations.
We rent and sell formal kilts and accessories as well as offering Sports and Polyviscous Kilts. We carry Belleek Pottery items from Ireland. We have assortments of Celtic crosses, Celtic Knot, Trinity Knot, and Claddagh wall, table, and shelf decorations.
Among our jewelry selections are Claddagh Rings, Bracelets, and Bangles. Celtic Crosses and Trinity Knots, Neckwear and more, all in both men’s and women’s style and design.
We carry sweaters, long and short sleeve T-shirts, sweatshirts, and both men and women's hoodies, and onesies for the wee beasties also. All shirts, hoodies, and onsies can be custom designed by our production department.
We also customize Pub signs with matching coasters, we make custom Key Chains, Mouse Pads, Flags, and Coffee Cups. Almost anything can be custom designed to include your Clan Badge, Family Crest, or just about any design you have in mind. The possibilities are seemingly endless.
We believe in the Celtic spirit and heritage. We enjoy the Celtic events, holidays and special occasions.
