(A wonderful variety of colors and sizes.)

Dean and Pat Brateng emit the down-to-earth, hometown friendliness that inspired me to open a Scandinavian Shoppe in Roseau.  Dean has been weaving longer than I've been alive and it shows in the craftsmanship and the quality o...

Janet was one of the first artists I met when the new Shoppe was beginning to take shape.  She is the kind of woman that when she speaks, I listen.  She emits wisdom, warmth and kindness and her eyes brighten when she talks about her art and her love of creating....
