Your Scandinavian Granny Would Love this Place 8/15/2005

Part Norwegian Craft store, part deli, 100% old country. If you want to purchase kits or take classes on Scandinavian needlepoint, or brush up on your rosemailing, this is the place. Whereas the deli serves up all the yucky Scandinavian favorites such as fish balls, and lutefisk, along with a variety of cheeses such as Gjetost, Nokkelost, and Vasterbotten. The store's facade and location are at total odds with each other. The quaint, carefully handpainted signage and well maintained store looks about as out of place on E Lake Street as your sweet old granny would look moshing at a Korn concert. more

  • The countries of Scandinavia share borders and many customs, but they also have crafts, foods, and holidays that are unique to each one. The differences between countries have long been a source for humor and a good bit of ribbing. At Ingebretsen's, the neighboring countries of Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Iceland live quite harmoniously under one roof. In the meat market, Swedish sausage lies amiably next to its Norwegian and Danish counterparts. Lefse mingles with lingonberries. Sardines are next to herring. Next door, in the gift shop, Finnish crystal sparkles on a shelf with Danish porcelain and Icelandic ceramics. Sterling jewelry from Norway rests near linens from Sweden. Visitors of all nationalities will enjoy many rich and varied examples of Scandinavian culture. The store was opened when Lake Street was the center of immigrant Scandinavian culture and it provided familiar food to customers who want to keep traditions alive. Ingebretsen's has expanded beyond just food; the gift store is a blend of quality imports and one-of-a-kind creations by local Nordic artisans.Come to Ingebretsen's
