Sons of Norway Foundation Auction Update

Today starts the second week of the Sons of Norway Foundation online auctionfundraiser! To mark the occasion we’ve added a few new items for member to bid on, including some gorgeous art and stoneware.

First, we’ve got some watercolor prints of traditional bunads by Sharon Aamodt that beautifully display the rich colors of Norway’s traditional garb. They can be viewed by clicking here and here.

In addition, we have a hand crafted stoneware bowl was done by artist Sherry Gorse. The dusty blues and earthy brown pattern lends itself to display on a shelf or to use as a serving piece.

Last, but not least, we have an experience up for auction that includes an evening for a party of 6 to 8 persons to enjoy the night sky. Gourmet Dessert will be catered by The Flower and Bea Teas and the Star Party will be conducted by Dr. Terry Flower, Emeritus Professor of St. Catherine University. Location is in the suburban St. Paul area.

These are great items that I think will be very popular with our members. If you haven’t yet, be sure to bid soon and bid often! Remember, all proceeds go to support the Sons of Norway Foundation. Also, be sure to keep checking back for new and updated items listed on the auction and highlighted here on the blog.
