Ingebretsen Building History:

Built in 1878 by Eric Peterson...one of the brothers who came from Karlskoga, Sweden in 1851 and started the village of Stockholm...and Youngquist, this stone buildling dates from the original settlement of Stockholm.  Its first use was as a general store/farm implements.  For a short time, around 1885-87, it was a hotel.  Anton. Eric's son, ran a hardware business in the building.  Through the years it became a confectionary, barbershop, speakeasy and cafe.  When Eric Janus and Carolyn Chalmers bought the building in early 2002, the building had been abandoned for several years.  Restoration and renovation of the upstairs residence and downstairs shop were completed in 2003.

J. Ingebretsen's av Stockholm opened their shop in September 2003, returning the building to its Scandinavian heritage and commercial use.

Classes at Ingebretsen's

SaamiMixed-Level Sami Bracelet, Sat., May 17, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

The dramatic landscape of northern Scandinavia is that of the midnight sun, northern lights, and the Sámi, a nomadic tribal group that follows the migration of the reindeer. Traditional Sámi jewelry incorporates elements of their northern landscape – softened reindeer leather and sculpted antler. Beginners will explore the traditional jewelry techniques of triple braiding, coiled pewter wire, and sewing the finished braid to a softened reindeer hide strip. A reindeer antler button finishes off the bracelet. More advanced students will create a wide multi-braided bracelet with a variety of braids and coils. Class fee is $35 and is payable to Ingebretsen's. The materials fee is $95 and is payable to the instructor. Call 612.729.9333 to register.
