Thank you for visiting our website.
We hope you will find our products unique and reasonably priced. We have spent countless hours researching to buy products directly from the manufacturers. Most of the items are imported directly from Scotland, England and Ireland.
Celtic Corner was opened in February 2002 by Lenora Gilmour, Louise Reid and Robert Reid. Robert is married to Louise and has been a bagpiper since 1996. Louise is Lenora's daughter and a Highland Dancing judge and instructor. Lenora has been a kilt maker for over 20 years but has been sewing most of her life. In this short time, the small family run business has grown dramatically and we are very excited to be expanding our online store. In 2013, we were approached by The Ohio State University to be the exclusive producer of the Scottish Line of products in the Buckeye Tartan. The line launched in September 2014.
Lenora and Louise were both born in Glasgow, Scotland and came to America in 1984. After overcoming many obstacles, Lenora opened a dance studio and dance supply shop in 1991. Shortly thereafter, the studio was able to offer Scottish Highland dance lessons, the only place these lessons were available at the time in Cincinnati. With growing interest in this art form, Lenora took her sewing skills and dove into the world of Kiltmaking so that the dancers could obtain costumes at a reasonable price. With growing interest in Cincinnati in all the Scottish and Irish arts, it was decided in 2002 to expand and open a store dedicated to Celtic products. Lenora now makes kilts for people across the country and several pipe bands. We have also designed many of our own products and keep a large inventory of gifts, Highland attire and much more. We hope you enjoy our products!
Lenora, Louise and Robert
