Olsen's Danish Village Bakery

1529 Mission Drive
Solvang, California 93463
800-621-8238

As best I can tell this is strictly a mail order business, but they seem to have a full line of nice Danish baked goods. The best part is that the owner seems to be a Danish dude named Bent Olsen. I have a cousin by that name in Danmark, but I don't think he's a baker.

Beaver Choice

745 West Baseline Road
Mesa, Arizona 85210
480-921-3137

What the...? Had to do a double take on the name, wonder if it was some sort of innuendo. This place features Scandinavian, Polish, and Canadian cuisine, so I'm guessing the beavers are all Canadians. They actually have one hell of an interesting menu. Would love to check them out one day.

Interesting looking little Swedish shop out in Kansas. The name translates as "handicraft" per their site.

Pia's Scandinavian Woolens

Once upon a time Pia's used to be a real brick and mortar store in downtown Anchorage. I had the pleasure of going there a few years back, and meeting Pia. I see from their website that they have closed that location, but they remain in business as an online entity. They still look like they have a nice array of Scandinavian goods."
