About us

nordicsampler.com is an internet-based store facility for Nordstjernan, America's Swedish newspaper, in print since 1872. Covering equal amounts of Sweden and Nordic life in the United States, of food, film, people, lifestyle and news. Find out what's going on, where and when all over the U.S. Check our web page: Nordstjernan.

Nordic Sampler is the webshop for the true Scandinavian connoisseur, or for those looking for that special something with a clear Scandinavian origin.

Right now mostly a selection of special interest books, available in English and, in some cases Swedish, along with a dynamic collection of iconic photographs and illustrations. Choose the group of products you are interested in above—check back often, we continuously update. 

We don’t intend to offer you a full range of anything or everything. You will find few perishables, if any, and our ambition is solely to offer you items that are not easily - or at all - available at other locations. 

From time to time, we will also offer you items from our partners. These will be offered as samples or will be accessible here only for a very low price. So, if you have an interest in Scandinavia, the Nordic countries or Scandinavian items, check back often. “Life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you’re going to get.”
