Re: Irish Shop Mels

We are not taking orders online yet, but if any EF members around would like to make an order, I will see what I can do, we do not carry large numbers of any product at this time as we are really testing the waters product wise so have not over stocked, so I cannot promise.
If you are interested, send me a pm with your email address and I will send you a list of whats on offer and let me know what you are looking for .

Well I know Powers is available in Switzerland, but it is normally a bit of looking. And it would kool if it was easier to find. Your Guiness, is the export kind or the stuff being brewed, and being just sold in Ireland as well?

I hope I don't sound negative. I buy Guinness regularly at the pub and at the store. The stuff bought at the store and the pub, is export only beer, and is what is found outside of Ireland. It is all brewed in Ireland, but made differently for export, and does not taste as good as the domestic Guinness.

So what I am saying is that I do drink it, but if anyone was bringing over beer intended for the domestic market only, I would probably would pay more for it.

I drink those other ones too; just curious, and thanks for answering my questions.

hi, read your website, wishing you success in your Venture, it is great as a shop you are also embracing your local quality produce and crafts of your area.
See Barry Tea has been mentioned several times, but no one has mentioned Kimberley biscuits, always enjoyed buying those and giving as present in England and watching people faces when they bit into them or hearing their comments at later date.
That said dont order for me, as no idea when expect to be in your area, if I do will send you a pm first.

All good wishes

No problem, and I agree which is why I bring most stuff in direct from Ireland

Black pudding

ballymaloe relish, jalipino, or just the country

maybe some dubliner

Re: Irish Shop Mels

The interest is great, thanks guys.

Sorry Cess but no fresh foods at this time, they are a nightmare at customs and need special care and equipment in the shop and so we decided to wait till we are well established and then look into this.

First impressions ? The site is too slow to use.

Re: Irish Shop Mels

No problem with the speed at all.

The only tiny criticism I have is that if you click on some of the categories, eg jewellery, it says 'there are no products', but when you scroll down, there are some.

Otherwise, great, especially the Cadburys products, yum!

Good luck with your business!

Thanks hannah'sauntie, We will no doubt have teething problems, which is why feedback is most welcome.
Lots more products to go on, especially in the gift , jewellery area and I take onboard what you say.
Hope to see you in the Cadbury section soon

Re: Irish Shop Mels

Hello all,

I ordered from celtic embrace on Wednesday and the parcel was waiting for me yesterday evening when I got home - that makes it next day delivery which is fast.

It parcel was well packed and even the bag of flour survived the Swiss postal service.

Must say I did not find the site slow and I work in IT and am not very patient with computers

The site is just starting out so there are a limited number of products for the moment but I am sure this will increase - I personally would go there simply for the Taytos and Barry's tea.

Regards

John
