Almost 3 years of Harkin Headquarters.....



I am a surfer at heart with music in my veins, Kelsey is a magpie for textiles and bowls who was built for traveling. Together we're gypsies on a path somewhere, we just don't know or care where it leads.  As long as the path is happy and harmless, its a path we will continue to follow across the ocean and land for as long as our bodies can carry us, weather it be on our old boat or in my campervan that I built years ago with my father Kevin & uncle Seany.





We have been fortunate enough to see a lot of the world either through work or travel. We wanted to bring the best parts of our traveling gypsy lifestyle to people who haven't traveled. Thats what gave birth to the Idea of Harkin Headquarters. 


We started the company nearly 3 years ago and started trading 2 years ago. We love our business and love showing people the best parts of the world through what these places have to offer.  There is nothing cooler than seeing something hang in someones home that we bartered for or made ourselves.  Its an oddly rewarding thing.




Mostly we buy directly from the local artisans in countries like Bali, France, Ivory Coast, Spain, Mexico & Ireland to name but a few, who make or sell the stuff themselves. Or we hand-make it ourselves in the Harkin Headquarters in Venice Beach California with our Irish/cali flavor. This way non of the bigger corporations get a slice. We like that.




Shop local. It helps the world and helps you in the long run. We give a chunk of our income to various charities every month. Everything you buy from the HHQ helps people in more ways than one. 


Spread the love! Thanks for shopping with us and thanks for all your support. We have loads of new products coming your way in the coming months. Follow our page to stay up to date.✌?️?✈️?







Keith & Kelsey.

    Hello Keith, thanks for taking the time to updates us with the blog while on tour, and a rocking tour it is. There's such nice merchandise to add to the Keith Harkin memorabilia since those first four posters from years ago. Looking forward both the Christmas and the acoustic album. Cheers Roger

I love what you both do with the Harkin Headquarters business. I hope to be able to support it soon by buying an item from there. Keep travelling & living life. I love your music. It really touches my soul. Love from Australia xoxo

    Hello Keith & Kelsey, First off- Congratulations on your marriage!! I enjoy reading your blogs and must say that being a woman who loves to travel, I am a little envious of you two. What a way to spend a honeymoon! :-) I wish you both much happiness and good health in the years to come and hope you can continue to live this lifestyle as long as you wish to. But remember (speaking as a mom) that if you are planning any babies in the future, (which I hope you are) it will be a little harder to globe trot with a family. So enjoy it while you can and I'll check out your shop to see what I 'need'. ;-) Have always enjoyed Celtic Thunder and have all your CDs and DVDs. Hope that someday, you'll decide to get back in the group?? Love and hugs to you!

    Keith, thanks for the music you bring us - I listen on a daily basis and enjoy every song. They bring me up when I am down and make me smile each time I listen. Keep up the wonderful work. Remember to rest and relax along the way too.

    Hi Keith.
    I have been a CT fan for quite sometime.
    When the Big Guy (George) passed away I wasn't sure how the show would be like.
    Then l saw Lagacy on my pbs and there you were. You sure did fill George's large shoes. God Bless You.
    I am excited for you & your bride and the journey you have begun.

    But tell me, who will fill your shoes.
    God Bless!!!
