About us

CastleA Celtic Shoppe – Thistle & Pine started out in 2006 in an old century farmhouse in Pennsylvania as just Thistle & Pine.  We sold a variety of merchandise and a wee bit of Celtic.  As the years went by, my customers wanted more and more of the Celtic merchandise focusing on Irish & Scottish.  Not only did we have the storefront, but we set up as vendors at Highland Games and Celtic Festivals. Then in 2015, we sold our houses and land and moved to Florida. In 2021, we moved to Tennessee.   Now we are sell online and in a store in downtown Athens, TN called Pigeon Roost Goods, 6 South White St., Athens, TN 37303.  I have my "store space" in that shop! 

We are a small family business living in Athens, Tennessee.    Teresa is the owner with Scottish / Welsh heritage.  I (Teresa) grew up listening to my father play the bagpipes, so I guess it is just in the blood.   I stay involved in Celtic events. Currently, I am a  former board member of the St. Andrew’s Society of Pittsburgh & the designer of the t-shirts sold at the Ligonier Highland Games.  Also, I am a former  Steward for the Scottish Fiddle Competition at the Ligonier Highland Games at Ligonier, PA., plus a member of Scottish F.I.R.E.    I like to play fiddle, with a focus on Celtic tunes and am part laird for Dunans Castle, which makes me Lady Teresa. 

 I use companies from Scotland, Wales, the UK and Ireland.
