Extensive varied Scandanavian items

From jewelry and Christmas items to glassware and pottery, you can find so much here that you can't find elsewhere. The prices seem reasonable, and the staff is helpful.

I can't believe the review written by some strange person who complained that everything in the store was scandinavian, overpriced, and junk. Duhhhhh!!!! That is what you usually find in a scandinavian town with a Norwegian museum and a Norwegian college. Old ladies? You are right about that (about as pleasant as they come).

A truly exceptional gift shop. This has a spectrum of gift wares, from cards to Christmas ornaments. All with a Scandinavian theme. The hard to choose for will be accommodated here. Looks for the Ole and Lina fortune cookies or the trolls. My favorite was a silver locket with 4 photo capacity. I go here every time I am in... More

The selection of gifts (whether for yourself or others) is unbelievable and the service is beyond excellent. The store personnel leave you with the feeling that you've been helped by a family member that really cares that you're getting just the right item to fulfill your needs. I know you'll enjoy your shopping experience as much as my family and... More
