The store where all of the magic happened was called Hemslojd, and had a large statue of St. Lucia (Swedish Christmas tradition) out front. P.S. Friday was in the 70s, with a cool breeze and occasional rain. Everyone was grateful, and Remy was able to join us and wait outside with my Dad while I shopped.
They also had an extensive Christmas section with adorable figurines.
My purchases: (brochure was complimentary), dala horse, magnet, mug. In Swedish: "help yourself" or "you are welcome to it" - as in coffee, the national beverage.
They have Dala Horses all over town (I only photographed my favorite).
Art on buildings:
They have a Swedish festival in the fall. Perhaps one day I'll make it back to Lindsborg, and also back to Sweden (because my only other trip was with the aforementioned grandparents when I was five). We returned on Saturday, and I'm already feeling the vacation blues. Good thing there is another trip on the horizon... stay tuned! ;) But first, I'll see you on Wednesday with the usual mid week wrap up.
