About Scandinavian Trends
Scandinavian Trends is owned by husband and wife Chris and Merete Bendtsen. The
Bendtsens opened their store in 1966 in Ghiradelli Square in San Francisco. It
became the Bay Area's most beloved resource for fine Scandinavian shopping.
The Bendtsens share the traditions of their native country with their customers with
tremendous enthusiasm, and are now operating from the
historic town of Sonoma, California. The Bendtsens maintain friendly and
helpful connections with the gifted craftspeople and suppliers of Sweden, Norway,
Denmark, and Finland in order to keep Scandinavian Trends stocked with
wonderful Nordic goods. Chris and Merete are eager to hear from you if you're looking
for something special from the north countries, and hope that you will enjoy browsing
their ever-growing website.
