I stumbled into this boutique by complete accident while strolling through the Majorstuen neighborhood in Oslo last week and walked out with a wallet that was 300kr lighter. Thing is, the owners of this shop have taken a masculine (read: completely un-prissy and sans childish extras) approach to gift giving & snack buying. If there is anyone who hates pink, fluff and childish extras it’s me. I’m more of a “simply give me the goods, straight no chaser” kind of woman – so this place was right up my alley so to speak.
For those of you in Oslo or even visiting Oslo, this is the place to shop for regional sweet and savory treats sold by weight. They also sell the perfect “token of appreciation” type gift for the person who has everything or if you want a gift that is going to stand out from the “you got me flowers again” crowd. Loads of fancy pants olive oils and balsamic vinegars for sale, as well as sea salt blends, pastas and home fragrances.
P.S. Just a hint for the gifted-ly clueless out there (like myself) –
Men (or women), if that lovely lady (or man) in your life likes to cook, the guys at Hope & Glory will help you create a personalized gift just for her (or him). They know their stuff and take full pride in helping you not only get what you need but get something nice. Bring your wallet though, you will need it.
…don’t worry…the grammar police woman in me held back on the above simply because it was so cute (and totally true!)…
