( Baptism Traditions), opened in 2003, is a charming boutique located on a tranquil working farm in Aschim, Norway along the Randsfjord lake in central Norway. The owner and creator of this unique boutique wanted to combine her current farming lifestyle and her deep-seeded interest in traditional Norwegian sewing, knitting, embroidery and hand-made lace making.
The owner’s first creation was a beautiful baptismal dress decorated with hand-made gold lace and was meant for a clientele with expensive means. In April 2008, however, she and her husband expanded and restored the farm’s blacksmiths building, which now contains a larger selection of baptismal dresses in a wide range of prices. The new boutique contains a bright traditional Norwegian showroom, a functional sewing/work room for lace making demonstrations and a selection of dresses for rentals.
is also proud to announce that it has opened a museum of antique baptismal wear from around the world. Groups and individuals are always welcome to visit the boutique and museum and to meet with the creator of this truly special store.
