Swede dreams from start to Finnish for Seattle shoppers

October 29, 2012 by  

This weekend’s Scandinavian Holiday Bazaar is a timely and welcome event for the approaching holiday season. An adult event with plenty to offer to shopaholics, visitors will find a number of wonderful and unique Scandinavian gifts that loved ones will enjoy for many years to come.

The holiday bazaar has a number of arts, crafts, and antiques from Scandinavia and also will be offering up some delicious traditional foods such as pea soup, meatballs, and shrimp sandwiches on Saturday, with pancakes to enjoy while doing a Sunday shop. A cash bar will be open both days.

The Swedish Club was founded in 1892 and has become the hub of Scandinavian activities throughout the northwest Pacific. The members of this club are Swedes, other Scandinavians, and people from many different cultures.

Poster printing may have been among the techniques used to promote this holiday event to residents of the Seattle community. Admission is $1 per person and everyone is invited to start their holiday shopping early this year.

The Scandinavian Holiday Bazaar is scheduled for this Saturday, November 3, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and also on Sunday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm at the Swedish Cultural Center located at 1920 Dexter Avenue N. in Seattle, Washington. It will take place on all three floors of the building during this two-day shopping extravaganza. To learn more, please visit the Scandinavian Holiday Bazaar website, the Swedish Cultural Center, or call Kristine Leander at 206-283-1090 during normal business hours.
