Welcome to Rampant Lion Celtic Traders
We have 4 events on our calendar now for this year, starting this month! Please come out if you can and visit our booth and the festival we are supporting. If you can't make it out to a fest, please visit our shopping pages and place your order. You can start your Christmas shopping anytime!!
We are now one year of no Irish Scottish or Celtic Events and are already looking at being event free into July. We still don't know what the rest of the summer will hold but we are always hopeful to get back to festivals, as long as it can be done safely.

We have updated our Products portion of the website and added 3 NEW categories in the Kitchenware section (Bar Signs, Bowls and Breakfast Tea Tins). There are fresh T-shirt designs, Dog Collars and Leashes, Cross Stitch Charts and Kitchenware items, so take a look and see what you need to have on hand. Perfect for Hostess or Shower gifts too! There are NO events for us to participate in this year, so we will not be back on the road until sometime in 2021, hopefully. Please use this time to help support our independent, family owned business. There is no other support available to us!
We are all navigating new territory right now and no one is exempt! Our last 2 events were cancelled and we don't know if our next several events will go on or not. To that end, we are struggling, like all of you. We encourage you to look thru our website at this time and see if there is something there we can send out to you or send out to a friend as a gift from you. In this time of social distancing, you aren't able to get out to friends to help them celebrate, but we can get things into the mail for you. We are happy to enclose a card with your gift, with your sentiment for no extra charge, of course.
Everyone hopes to come thru this time unscathed and we are no exception. Please give your support to small, independent businesses now and save your big box support for another time!

As many of you already have heard, we have made the decision to close the brick and mortar portion of our business. We opened the store in 2003 and moved to our current store in 2005. However, due to the new trends in shopping and the crash of the CD market, we are just not seeing the number of customers in the store that we need to in order to keep it open. We will still appear at Scottish, Irish and Celtic festivals around the Midwest and Florida and we will keep our website updated with new products. Jack will also continue to write his column in the Irish American News every month. April 14 will be the last day to come into the store and make your purchases. After that, you can visit the website or look for us at a festival. We will post on our Facebook page when we will be at events, so when you Like our page, select the option to see our posts first, so you don't miss any events!! Thanks for shopping with us and we hope to see you on the road.
Rampant Lion is a family owned business since 1986. You can find us at many major Irish, Scottish and Celtic festivals in the Midwest and also in Florida. We feature a wide variety of gift items including ceramic kitchenware and textiles, tin whistles, flag items from most of the Celtic Nations, classic Irish and Scottish music CDs and the largest selection of Celtic themed cross stitch kits and charts.
We do have a large selection of items available for purchase here on our ecrater website. You can order and pay with a credit card via Paypal, securely and quickly. If you don't see what you are looking for, please email us and we will help you with your purchase.
