The shop began on October, 1975 in a 700 square foot location. The idea for the shop began in some of the stores in Lindsborg, Kansas and Rochester, Minnesota. In the past three decades the shop has gone through many changes  including a move around the corner for more space.

Now the shop specializes in many items that are not Scandinavian-greeting cards, jewelry,
Porcelain bisque night lights,  small wind-up toys, kinetics, Dover Publications coloring books,  activity books, postcard books, and sticker paper dolls  are a large part of the current inventory.  German nutcrackers, German “smoking men” (incense burners), and the wonderful Pyramids, that rotate when the candles are burning are some of our wonderful holiday fare.

There are also Russian nested dolls, many are animals and handcrafted Siberian Birch boxes. Glogg,  Pepparkakor (ginger thins), Lefse, and Lingonberries  are some of our customer’s favorite treats
