Here's a peek behind the counter at the hardware store and museum
Järnhandel at Skansen in Stockholm, Sweden.
During her visit to Stockholm, Welter visited independent home
improvement store Fredells Byggvaruhus.
Retailer and Association Visits
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. Learn more about Welter's
visit at TheRedT.com/nrha-abroad-sweden. For more on the
