Little Shop of Shamrocks

Little Shop of Shamrocks


Keeping with the spirit of March, I wanted to give a little recognition to our Long Island Irish Stores 🍀

If you have never been to a local Irish store, then I implore you to check one out! These lovely, cozy shops are unique in the sense that you will not be able to find certain items anywhere else locally. Generally you can find goods like, custom clothing imported from Ireland, charming home décor, and an array of authentic jewelry, including traditional Claddagh rings. Rare finds are all around you! These stores are genuinely the perfect place to get a unique and amazing gift for a loved one.

Our local Irish shop are true examples of hard-working small businesses. They serve our community by bringing Ireland to Long Island! Here are just 5 I recommend:

- Olde Towne Garden Irish & Victorian Gift Store (Wantagh)
- Kathleen's of Donegal Irish Imports and Gift Shop (Rockville Centre)
- Little Shop of Shamrocks (Islip)
- Mary's Irish Shop (Long Beach)
- Irish Crossroads Ltd. (Sayville)

Are there any other Irish stores on Long Island that you recommend? Comment below! 👇
My first experience visiting the Little Shop of Shamrocks and meeting the owner Linda is one I will never forget. October 8th was my daughter’s 24th Birthday and I wanted to pick her up something special just from me. I left work in Islandia at 5:00 and called ahead to see if they were open. By this time it was 5:20ish, Linda answer the phone and asked if my daughters birthday was today and I said yes. I’m sure she heard the panic in my voice when she said they closed at 5:30. Linda was kind enough to tell me to come straight over and she would wait for me. Linda didn’t rush me or make me feel like I was imposing. In today’s world most won’t experience the incredible customer service I received that day. Linda helped me pick out the gift and my daughter loved it !!! I am truly grateful to have met her that day. Thank you Linda 😊😊

Hello my friends,

It has been a while… a lot has happened since LSS closed the doors. It took me a few weeks to clear out the shop and then it was onto transitioning into retirement. Truth be told, I am missing all your friendly faces and I am excited with all the updates I have to share with you all…

Since closing the shop, I traveled to the Carolinas to look for a new home and I did find one. My home here on Long Island sold rather quickly and I am moving to Calabash, NC.

Lots of changes happening!! I will be leaving the NY area the beginning of July and will be having a garage sale at my house…there “may” be some things still left from LSS. Date for this June 4th 7am-2pm.

This past weekend I attended an Irish/Celtic Trade Show in search of companies to work with in creating my LSS website. It is a work in progress and will be up and running once I settle in my new home sometime in September.

In addition to all this I am planning a trip to Ireland as well. A customer who has become a dear friend has asked me to put together a tour for “Ladies Only”. She has about 12 ladies interested, and I will be looking to fill the rest of the coach. It will be a small group of 20-25 ladies. The tour will be going over Sept 2023. I have also been in touch with NACTA Travel to help put this tour together. We are looking to include some fun stops along the way, possibly some cooking classes and lots of shopping while we travel around Ireland. More information to come as I finalize the itinerary and pricing.

As I said, lots of changes. I will be back with more information to keep all of you updated. Also watch Facebook for more LSS new and updates.

All the Best, Linda


🇮🇪💚☘️ Good Luck both Eileen and Bill as they march up Main St today. LSS may not be here physically, but we are with you in Spirit. Hope to see many old friends at the Parade today. 🇮🇪💚☘️


🎅🏻🎄Still looking for that special present and you do not want to go to the mall. The shop may not look the same. But here at ☘️LSS I still have a few bits left to select from. I will be here finishing up a few of my last minute things. Come on in, the doors will be open from 10:00 to 2:00. Happy Christmas to all 🎄🎅🏻


Newgrange is best known for the illumination of its passage and chamber by the Winter Solstice sun☀️. Above the entrance to the passage of the mound, there is an opening called a roof-box. On mornings around the winter solstice, a beam of light penetrates the roof-box and travels up the 19 metre passage and into the chamber. As the sun rises higher, the beam widens so that the whole chamber is dramatically illuminated💚.
