Hello everyone. Scandaffären Inc. has opened its virtual doors are we are ready to show you the best of Scandinavia and Finland!

We all know the traditional looks of Scandinavia and Finland- Dala Horses, little gnomes, St. Lucia festivals and, of course, modern design, but there is so much more. Amazing art glass, fine china, woven textiles, wood products, metal work are all part of the professionally produced goods coming out of the Nordic world. Scandaffären does not have all the items available right now, but every week we are expecting new shipments. Right now we have food items (confections/candy, cookies, crisp bread, drinks) , Art Glass by Mats Jonasson and Målerås Glasbruk (glass factory) and some modern coffee/tea services done in ceramic and wood by Tonfisk Design of Finland.

Just a quick word about the Art Glass we have on hand. It is gorgeous! Mats Jonasson and the other artists at Målerås are so talented. They have taken lead crystal and carved it and molded it into fantastic replicas of fauna or flora in varying sizes and subjects. Please enjoy browsing the gallery and adding a piece or two to your home.

We’d like to think that candy is candy, but the truth is that there is candy then there is something special we can call confections; something more special than the average candy bar selected in haste at a convenience store. The Nordic people love having delicious chocolates, licorice and salted licorice, and jams bursting with berry flavors not common in the US. Julmust is a Holiday soda, usually available around Christmas, but many enjoy its robust flavor year round; there is also saft- a juice concentrate in flavors such as Elderflower, Black Currant, Raspberry and Lingonberry (similar to cranberry). A great alternative to the traditional juice flavors of America. Have fun shopping!

You must see the Tonfisk Design items! “Bored of seeing more of the same, Tonfisk Design was established to produce objects which are not mere variations.” They have created award winning, modern, innovative and beautiful coffee/tea services for your table.

In order to serve you best we have partnered with PayPal, and you can choose whether to use your PayPal account or a credit card.
