ScrantonMade Holiday Market is just one month away!!! Tig & Cooneys is one of our most popular vendors with their well-loved vintage Scranton map coasters. This year, they have created a modern map of Scranton and Clarks Summit with their Map About Town – Hometown Whiskey Glasses- and they will be sold exclusively at the Holiday Market!!! You can preorder online and pick up at the Holiday Market and we highly encourage it! Their products are known to sell out at our events!
When did you start Tig & Cooneys?
I started Tig & Cooneys in 2013 as an Etsy shop. I began by making products for friends and family who had dogs (hence the name Tig & Cooney, which came from my dog’s two stuffed animals). Although I enjoy making dog gifts, I had an idea to start making map gifts when my friend had moved away and I wanted to give her a gift that reminded her of home. When I first started, I used vintage maps of jersey shore points and have now expanded to include any area in the US.
What are you planning to have for sale at ScrantonMade Holiday Market?
We will have a few brand new products that I think our customers are going to love. Along with our new products, we will have our vintage map stone coasters, topographic textiles, prints, and ornaments.
Do you have a most popular item with holiday shoppers?
Our most popular item over the past four years has been our vintage map stone coasters. We hope to have many of them available to our customers at the holiday market this year, along with our Vintage Scranton Map Pocket Square and other textiles!
Do you have any new products our readers should know about?
This year Tig & Cooneys is offering an exclusive item that will only be available at the Holiday Market. If you’ve seen our products before, you’ll be surprised to see that these maps are not our usual vintage map. We’ve created a modern map of Scranton and Clarks Summit that is etched into a whiskey glass. Our brand new Map About Town – Hometown Whiskey Glasses are perfect gifts for anyone who loves the town we live in or is previously from this area. It’s a great gift for someone who has moved away but wants to enjoy a drink in their hometown, no matter where they are. These are available in limited quantities and we are now taking preorders. Preorder HERE: www.mapabouttown.com
The second new product is our Scranton Streetcar Watercolor which will be available in prints and textiles. We had a fun debate to decide whether to use our old 717 area code or the new 570. Surprisingly, it was a pretty even vote, so our customers should be happy with the product whether they’d like the old or new area code!
Where else can our readers find you?
Our products are sold in Lavish and The Waverly General Store. Our customers can always find us on tigandcooneys.com to create a custom order!
Look for us at the holiday market with our name in lights! Can’t wait to see everyone again for our favorite event of the year!
