Friday, December 2, 2016:  Mark and Paula headed to St. Paul/Minneapolis. 
They dropped in at Ingebretsen's on Lake Street where decorating for Christmas was in progress.

Paula loves this 95 year old Scandinavian shop.  There is even an Ingebretsen's in Stockholm, Sweden, much like this one.
Included in the store is a butcher shop for Scandinavian specialties including Lutefisk.

Then it was off to the Midtown Global Market at 920 East Lake Street in Minneapolis. 
Many dozens of shops are frequented by hundreds of people daily.
Paula loves this statue. 
There is even a Brow Art shop where you can have your eyebrows enhanced. 
Paula picked up some Earth Crayons.  They are in the shape of objects we know, like farm roosters and tractors.  Great for kids.
She eyed the pastry.  No comment on whether or not she bought some.  Some knowledge best kept secret.

Quote of the day:    Every Christmas shopping experience usually includes food.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
