Celtic Crossroads

Celtic Crossroads.

Celtic Crossroads.

Celtic Crossroads NW is celebrating 12 years of being in business in the beautiful Victorian Seaport town of Port Townsend, Washington as a family-owned and operated business (3 generations). The shop recently moved to a new location so at that time they changed their name as well. Formerly known as Wandering Angus Celtic Traders the business was bought by the Ayres’ Clan in 2008. They changed the name since too many people dropped the “g” in Angus and we found we were at a crossroads in life. 

Celtic Crossroads NW wants to go against the grain and keep their extended family together rather than have them disperse to the far-flung reaches of the globe.

This store, as well as their off-grid living experience in Northern Idaho…a story for another time and place, is/was a means to that end. In their time of learning about the Celts, they have found that the Celtic movement is helping people find their roots and keep in touch with family traditions. That movement fits perfectly with their desire to find their roots including Irish, Scottish, and Cornish, and keep their family unit together. Therefore, Celtic Crossroads NW strives to order from family-owned and operated Celtic companies.
