Midwest Living Review
Bringing Ireland to the Heartland, this spacious Celtic shop looks like it once was a family home. Thistle and Clover specializes in imports from Scotland, Ireland and Wales. Give the staff your last name, and they'll dig up your family crest or your clan and its tartan. Zeroing in on something from a particular country is easy, because the store is arranged geographically. You can find everything from corny "Irish Only" parking signs to cookbooks to gold claddagh rings to multiple styles of kilts for adults as well as children. Don't miss the shortbread; a local woman bakes it exclusively for this shop.
