    Buy flags, windsocks, and Norge vimples from Lena and Ole’s Gifts

    We carry the large traditional Norwegian “flag” that can be flown all the time — not just on traditional Norwegian flag days. Anyone traveling in Norway has seen this beautiful large triangle shaped flag flying over Norwegian homes all year round. We have the vimple available for $49.00 plus shipping — a traditional way that Norwegians fly their colors and let everyone know when they are at home during non-flag days. It is a great Christmas gift. One of our favorite items is a windsock — available with Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Finnish flag designs as well as the US flag. We even have a German windsocks since Lane (also known as Ole) has German roots. We also carry English and Italian windsocks while supplies last! They are only $19.95 plus shipping and are high quality, stitched nylon pieces (not printed) and will hold up well outside.

    Call 414-745-4362 or e-mail lenaole130@gmail.com to have it sent to you or your gift recipient.

    Swedish Dish Cloths are the #1 seller in Lena and Ole’s Booth

    If you haven’t started using the Swedish dish cloths, only $5.95 each in a huge array of designs, you are missing out. This dry sponge cloth was invented in 1949 in Sweden by engineer Curt Lindqvist. The cloth is printed with environmentally safe and water based colors and is washable in your dishwasher or clothes washer. The amazing cloth removes (due to a texture on the back) those pesky stains on granite and your metal kitchen appliances. It also can absorb 15 times its own weight but then dries in an incredibly short time, eliminating that nasty smell associated with regular washcloths. It is made of natural cellulose and cotton and is 100% biodegradable. If you order 3 or more (call 414-745-4362), shipping is free.

    It makes a great gift (cheaper than many greeting cards) and is useable, unique, and easily mailed.

    Another Lena and Ole Joke Book!

    Ole and Lena:  Women are from Minot...Men are from Uranus

    Ole and Lena: Women are from Minot…Men are from Uranus

    .

    Yes, it’s true — a flip flop book — read the jokes in one half “e.g. “women are from Minot” and then flip the book over and read je jokes about “men are from Uranus”. Bruce Danielsen and Ann Berg from Cambridge, Minnesota are well qualified to write about those classic Norwegians, Ole and Lena. This great paperback is filled with crazy pictures and jokes for only $6.95. A must have for any Scandinavian — almost cheaper than a get-well card and lots cheaper to laugh than to “take pills” to feel better. Call Lena at 414-745-4362 to order!
