Odds and Ends was born in late August 2015 after a period of unemployment within our family. It was decided that the funds we had been setting aside to update our family car would instead be used to create our own employment.
We embarked on opening a retail shop that would offer a wide variety of useful household items at an affordable price.
We’re a family-run business, with Cal acting as front-man and myself behind the scenes, dealing with orders, bills and paperwork while raising our brood and also assistance from wider family members during our initial phases and from our eldest son during the creation of this website.
We are situated in the country market-town of Ennistymon or Ennistimon, famous for its stunning waterfalls and also known for its close proximity to the sea-side town of Lahinch. It has a friendly close-knit community and we as ‘Blow-ins’ have been made to feel very welcome and appreciate our connections within the community.
