Even if you've been to the original in Easton, it's worth a visit to this 18-month-old sister store. While there are many items here you will find there, there are some you won't. Needless to say, everything here is either made in Ireland, or has an Irish or Celtic connection. This orange and cobalt serving bowl ($110) and green accented candlestick ($65) both come from Kerry Crafted Glass, in Killarney, County Kerry, Ireland. The Annapolis shop also carries the hand-blown glassware - like this pitcher ($135) - of famed glass artist Simon Pearce, who moved his business from his native Ireland to Vermont in 1981. Irish Traditions is at 141-143 Main St., Annapolis. Call 410-990-4747 or go to irishtraditionsonline.com.
