Julie says “Hej!” and our must-see Proongily exhibit

Welcome to our blog!

We here at Ingebretsen’s have long valued the communication we have with you, our customers. We love sharing our passion for and knowledge of our Nordic heritage, and hearing from and learning from you, as well. With that in mind, we are evolving our e-newsletter into a blog! This will give us more flexibility and make it easier for you to interact with us. And each blog will be saved in a searchable archive, making it easier to find information.

We look forward to sharing new products, fun ideas, special events and much, much more! Let us know what you think.

All the best,

Julie Ingebretsen and the rest of the staff

We have a really cool exhibit in our classroom!

Proongily Exhibit Wide Shot

Right now, our classroom, which is connected to our needlework shop (next door to the main gift shop and meat market), is home to an excellent exhibit of paper cutting from Proongily.

If you’ve been into our store, you may have seen some of the wonderful paper cut ornaments, cards, place cards, trees and runners, which Proongily has to offer.  Now–but only for a limited time–in addition to carrying all of those great products, we are pleased to be able to house this impressive collection of artwork.Proongily Deer Layers

Paper cutting has a long and varied history in many parts of the world–Scandinavia is no exception–and the artist behind Proongily, Cynthia McKeen, has a rich background with influences from diverse places including Denmark, Japan and, of course, the Upper-Midwestern United States.

This exhibit is can’t-miss and we would, therefore, like to invite and encourage everyone to come and see it.  As always, there are complementary pepparkakor (cookies) and coffee in the classroom, so come on in and enjoy!
