The Tinker's Cart Story 

It all began in 1986 when John and Janice Hughes wheeled a pushcart chock full of Irish wares into a mall in New Hampshire and the Tinker's Cart was born. One pushcart turned into two and then three. The pushcarts gave way to kiosks and seasonal stores at a variety of New England malls.

Handpicked from Ireland 

The business is now in the capable hands of their daughter Cheryl Hughes. Cheryl is an artist and has harbored a love of retail all her life. She travels often to Ireland to find unique and unusual products. You will also find some of her paintings of Ireland adorning the walls of the shop. The Tinker’s Cart also offers customer embroidery and you can find clothing embroidered with their own Irish and Celtic designs.
