This niche market eCommerce and publishing business is looking for a major investor or buyer.

This highly established business serves the International Celtic community. The company is made up of “The Celtic Market” – a multi-vendor, niche market business, located in Halifax, NS, dedicated to selling all things Celtic – from clothes and jewellery to toys and collectibles. This online marketplace is supported by the publication “Celtic Life International” - a magazine published six times per year, in print and digital. Both “The Celtic Market” and “Celtic Life International” magazine are hosted by the website

The magazine has been running for 34 years providing a recognized international brand for a potential buyer/investor. Since its inception, the brand has developed a significant presence internationally in Europe, Australia, and North America, through its social media, print and digital distribution. Its online presence includes social media platforms – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest where the reach extends to tens of thousands of people each month including digital bi-weekly Newsletter that reaches over 40,000 digital contacts. Furthermore, it is the only business of its kind in the marketplace, benefiting from zero competition.

This E-Commerce business has huge potential to expand. A strategic sales and marketing plan will forge new relationships with buyers and sellers, with the potential to increase its already large and loyal client base. There is highly significant growth potential in the Celtic niche market; greater growth potential in adding new options to the existing model; and further growth potential in replicating our model in other business sectors.

The Celtic marketplace benefits from being both large and specific. There are more than 400 million people of Celtic extraction worldwide and hundreds of thousands of vendors catering to that market. There are thousands of Celtic organizations such as Irish Benevolent Societies, Robert Burns Societies and Welsh organizations etc. These organizations are well organized, with significant membership and collectively they represent millions of people, in thousands of organized groups, all with Celtic connections. They are all potential buyers within an E-Commerce marketplace.

Celts are proud of their heritage and display that pride at every opportunity. At the week-long Festival Interceltique de Lorient, (Britany) France, you will find more than 5,000 exhibitors with upwards of 1 million attendees. Throughout Canada and the USA, hundreds of thousands of Celts and others attend Highland Games and Festivals year long. They are all potential E-Commerce buyers. Celtic Life International has an excellent relationship with thousands of advertisers, all of whom are potential Vendors for the multi-vendor marketplace.

One of the many benefits of this reputable business is that it can be operated from anywhere in the world. Furthermore, the current staff are all highly trained, educated experts in their field and are dedicated to making the transition to the new buyer as seamless as possible.

With a large and loyal pre-existing customer base and the potential to reach even more of the 400 million Celts worldwide, along with the company’s successful 34-year history and the growing trend to shop online, this E-Commerce business is an exciting opportunity, in an industry very much in a “new world” growth mode.
