Here at the Tinker's Cart we pride ourselves on bringing you the finest goods the Emerald Isle has to offer. We have been importing quality Irish goods for over 30 years.

It all began in 1986 when John and Janice Hughes wheeled a pushcart chock full of Irish wares into a mall in New Hampshire and the Tinker's Cart was born. One pushcart turned into two and then three. The pushcarts gave way to kiosks and seasonal stores at a variety of New England malls.

Many of you know us from the numerous Irish festivals we have exhibited at over the years. We're easy to find and we offer the most complete array of Irish products you'll find in central New England. You'll find you're always welcome at the Tinker's Cart!
