About Us

Cheryl and Jen met at an Irish Festival many years ago. Cheryl was representing her family business “the Tinkers Cart” based at the time in Clinton, MA and Jen was representing her family business “Erin Knitwear” based in Ireland! They got along instantly, bonding over Tayto, Cadburys Flake and a couple of glasses of wine! An enduring friendship was born based not just on a shared love of Irish snacks (and having great craic when they got together) but a love of all things Irish – their two families were in the same business, Jen’s in Blarney, Ireland and Cheryl’s here in the States, a business started by Cheryl’s Dad, John Hughes. When Cheryl travelled to Ireland to buy for her business many a night out was had with Jen’s siblings who are always ready to welcome friends of Jen! As you can see from the photo they are still having great craic – how much do these two love their job?

Ancestry, culture, heritage, roots! Our stories - who and what we are, where we came from, where we belong. This is what we all yearn for, seeking our personal histories through research and record, preserving the stories through generation to generation in the endless telling of the tales and family anecdotes. The stories of those who stayed home, and the loved ones who went away, making new lives in new worlds, the passing down of treasured family heirlooms and the pride that comes with being part of a larger story, with chapters scattered to the four winds!

Here in New England, thru the Tinker’s Cart and now through our Home & Away Subscription Boxes we are so happy to bring to you beautifully curated treasures from those in Ireland who stayed at home and those in New England who went away. Each month our themed boxes will feature a variety of items speaking to our culture to warm your heart and home. From snacks to scents each month will hold for you a blissful surprise.

“Weaving together the threads of our culture, honoring all our stories! 

Welcome to Home & Away!”

What our customers say about shopping at The Tinker's Cart

I would like to start by saying...Tinker's is the best! The owner is a very delightful woman and very helpful. The selection of gifts is impressive. Everything from Retro Rugby Shirts, personalized pub signs, and a large array of woolen sweaters. A perfect place for shopping for Christmas, Weddings, and Birthday Gifts.

Trust me, Tinker's Cart is worth the drive from Boston and South Shore, MA.

My experiences at The Tinker's Cart have all been extremely pleasurable. The store itself is lovely and I always find everything I'm looking for! And I even ordered things online and when she didn't have what I ordered, she found me a replacement! Nothing but pleasant and wonderful experiences! I will continue my business there, and I suggest you should too!

What a hidden gem this store is! Stocked with all kinds of goodies from jewelry to custom embroidery clothing to irish candy/food imported directly from Ireland just to name a few. You can not find better quality of product or service on this side of the pond!
