What People Say about working with Scandinavian Specialties

Scandinavian Specialties is one of our top, “go to” vendors bringing us unique products at good prices.

Karna Peterson, Catalog Manager / Hemslojd ~ Lindsborg, KS

Liv, Bruce, Laila, and Heidi are practically family. They care about my business – and me, and my employees – and I care about them. They amaze with their ability to pay attention to what we need and are interested in, and to keep us informed – the epitome of personal service! And, they happen to import some really great stuff, products I can be proud to carry. They are the best!

Julie Ingebretsen, Ingebretsen’s Scandinavian Gifts ~ Minneapolis, MN

We have been buying from Scandinavian Specialties for over 20 years and can only say good things about them. They carry a good range of product lines that are all of high quality. When we have product questions, they are quick to assist and are very knowledgeable about their products. They have gone the extra mile for us numerous times by trying to find particular products for a customer and contact us about products that they think would work well in our shop. Shipments come quickly and any issues that may come up are taken care of right away.

Carmen Graves, House of Scandinavia ~ Rapid City, SD

Scandinavian Specialties is always a pleasure to work with. They have quality, unique products and always have something new. Their customer service is also excellent. They are quick to answer questions and ship product. I appreciate the range of products they carry. I can find items in a variety of prices and genres to fit my variety of customer shopping needs.

Saara Matthews, Finn Ware of Oregon ~ Astoria OR

They have been an important supplier since I opened my business 7 years ago. Very easy to deal with and always looking for new and exciting merchandise for us to sell. Willing to help with any question you might have. Just good people to work with.

Dave Jacobsen, Nordic Northwoods ~ Hayward, WI

Scandinavian Specialties has been one of our top vendors since we took ownership of our store 6 years ago. They are very good at bringing what’s “new” to their product line to keep updated, fresh and current! For example, the Alrun runic pendants and Ozone socks do especially well for us! The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful with quick turn arounds in delivery.

Heidi Bergerson & Sandy Sheets, Scandinavian Gift Shop ~ Alexandria, MN

We love working with Scandinavian Specialties! Laila, Kristin and Heidi are so nice and easy-going. We began ordering with Scan Spec because of the Ozone socks. They sell well and we re-order them often. This is especially exciting for us because we are primarily a food store. Our customers see the Ozone socks – which are really beautiful and well-priced – and they cannot resist them! Recently we picked up the Gudrun Walla eco dish cloths line from Scan Spec. They, too, fly out the door!

Lora Wiley, Au Marché ~ Lawrence, KS

We have been working with Scandinavian Specialties for over 20 years and have had nothing but a great experience every time we shop there.

They are always looking for something new and unique to bring in to offer us and are very open to our suggestions and ideas as to what we need in our stores. It seems for every market there is always something new to show us!

The customer service is always great! They ship orders out fast and complete and usually have stock for reorders.. They also call before shipping backorders to see if we need anything else so as to save us shipping charges.

The family friendly atmosphere at Scandinavian Specialties is always a fun and relaxed place to shop. We would highly recommend you check out their products!
