Scandinavia

SCANDINAVIE / SCANDINAVIA

Contact details
Gift stand: Ebba Odhner ebba.odhner@gmail.com
Food stand: Maria Osterblad patrik@pt.lu

This part of the Bazaar represents the Nordic countries of Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. The stand is in two parts; one sells gift items which we think are typical of our respective countries and the other foods, also representative. We would like to give you an idea of what we offer, but we cannot list everything!


 

Welcome to the Scandinavian Stand 2016!

bluedragonlogoThe Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation
The Scandinavian Stand is proud to support the principal charity of the Bazar, the Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation. It is the first time, in over 50 years, that the Scandinavian stand has nominated a project that has been chosen as principal charity by the Bazar International.
The Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation helps street children, disabled children and victims of trafficking in Vietnam. The foundation has several projects to support education, housing, legal aid and runs a shelter for those children unable to return to their families.

GIFT STAND

This year we have focused on the traditional ‘calendar’ candles as well as classic white (stearin) candles – also for Christmas trees. Furthermore, we offer modern Christmas articles from the Danish company Proba.

FINLAND

This year you find out all about the handmade ‘Tonttu‘ from Finland! You’ll fall in love with the cute little Tonttu (gnome) in the picture ❤

We have handmade products by Finnish ladies in Luxembourg, some Marimekko & Ratia products and of course Moomins for the youngest in the family.

Our stand sends its warmest thanks to our great sponsor FinlandStore.

The Scandinavian Stand has a new look for 2015!

Fresh look for the Scandinavian Stands!

In 2013 the Scandinavian Gift stand decided to replace the more than 40 year old construction by having a replica built by Forum pour l’emploi a.s.b.l. (http://www.fpe.lu).

The old Scandinavian Food stand was becoming a security risk and increasingly difficult to build up. In 2014 the stand was replaced by a new construction in the same design as the Gift stand.

We thank our sponsors below and, not at least, all you amazing people who every year is sharing with us how we Scandinavian’s celebrate Christmas.
