Scottish Leather SporransThe sporran is an essential piece of Highland dress that accompanies a Scotsman's kilt. The name comes from the Scottish Gaelic word for 'purse'.

In early years kilts were a very basic garment that required no tailoring and were generally a single piece of tartan cloth wrapped around the body. The kilt had no pockets and out of necessity the Highlanders carried a small pouch, usually suspended from a belt. This pouch became the sporran as we know it today.

We have 9 different designs that range in price from $15.00 to $25.00. Most sporrans are leather or cowhide, and a belt is included.
All Sporrans are here!

On the second Day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Two Scottish flags
and Christmas Songs by Carl Peterson

Royal Standard of Scotland flagThe Royal Standard of Scotland, also called the Rampant Lion. The lion has been used as a heraldic device by the Kings of Scotland since William I of Scotland in the 12th century. The Rampant Lion appears to have been used first by Alexander II (1214-1249). The rampant lion stands erect, on it's hind legs, with it's head in profile and forelegs extended.

National Flag of Scotland The National Flag of Scotland is the cross of St. Andrew, also known as the
Saltire. It is said to be one of the oldest national flags of any country. The official use of this flag, as a national emblem, dates from the 16th Century.

We have flags, stickers, blankets, key rings, lanyards, patches, and many more gifts using these two flags! Lion Rampant flags here and St Andrews flags here.

Summer Schedule

Last weekend was spent at the Scottish Festival at Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina. It was a great weekend. Beautiful weather. Well mostly beautiful! There was brief rain shower Friday afternoon, and a bit of a downpour on Friday night. But we were staying in a condo at the top of Sugar Mountain ski resort (no, not that huge building at the top of the mountain) and were able to watch the storms roll in and out from a nice deck.


The photo shows the Friday morning Sunrise from our condo.


Next week our office will be closed again. From July 17 to July 25. Orders can be placed during this time, but all will be shipped as soon as possible after July 25.

New! Sporrans

We are pleased to announce that we now carry a selection of leather sporrans.
Embossed Leather Sporran
The sporran is an essential piece of Highland dress that accompanies a Scotsman's kilt. The name comes from the Scottish Gaelic word for 'purse'.

In early years kilts were a very basic garment that required no tailoring and were generally a single piece of tartan cloth wrapped around the body. The kilt had no pockets and out of necessity the Highlanders carried a small pouch, usually suspended from a belt. This pouch became the sporran as we know it today.

A variety of designs, these sporrans include a chain or leather belt to complete your Highland gear. Browse the collection at Leather Sporrans.

St George and Shakespeare

St George's Day is celebrated April 23rd in England, Saint George being the patron saint of England. Many other countries also observe St George's Day on April 23, the traditionally accepted date of Saint George's death in 303 AD.

St George Gift Items

William Shakespeare died on 23 April 1616, aged 52. But what fun would that be if there was no controversy? It appears that the 23 April date is based on the Old Style, or Julian calendar, of Shakepeare's time. According to the Gregorian calendar, used today, the date of Shakespeare's death would actually be 3 May 1616.

Death--the last sleep? No, it is the final awakening.
--Walter Scott
