Retailer and Association Visits Stockholm, Sweden Welter also traveled to Stockholm, Sweden, in January to meet with Byggmaterialhandlarna, the association serving home improvement retailers in Sweden. Former retailer and president of the Swedish Hardware Heritage Association Göran Sundström took Welter on a tour of stores including XL-BYGG, Flinks Jarn, Fredells Byggvaruhus and more. She was also introduced to a unique home improvement history preservation project. In 2005, the Swedish Hardware Heritage Association funded the opening of a hardware store and museum called "Jarnhandel in Skansen." The store is part of an open-air market called Skansen, which is dedicated to educating the public on five centuries of Swedish history.
