At Huseby, we have several exciting shops with a wide assortment of products that are unique and reflect the history of the estate. An edge made out of iron for your flower bed, a Huseby-elf, or a bouquet of fragrant flowers that have been grown by the gardener, are some of the things you can find here.
Welcome to the Old Forge!
In the Old Forge, the smith worked with everything from machines to horseshoes. Today, the beautiful old stone building houses the reception and the estate’s shop. The shop has a selection of exciting products that reflect the history of the estate and the season’s exhibitions. In the small greenhouse outside, you find historical plants from the park and garden.
Here you can also buy tickets for guided tours and other current events.
“Would you like some sweets?”
Step into the old General Store (Brukshandeln) across from the mill which smells of freshly ground coffee and old-fashioned bar soap. In the shelves of the unique old shop, there are still metal cans, wooden boxes and funny signs from the times where the general store was the gathering place of the estate for gossip and meetings. Here, the staff is dressed in time-typical clothing and you can buy cone-shaped bag filled with sweets, the estate’s homemade tea, as well as the season’s vegetables and fruits from the kitchen garden.
The General Store is closed due to the corona virus.
The Bishop’s House Ceramics
“When thoughts want to convey something, the light dyes it, and the hands shape it, something real is created, something genuine.”
In the upper floor of the Bishop’s house, you find Huseby’s ceramicist Ingrid Larsson who also is an artist who paints on linen cloth with linseed oil paint. Here, she exhibits and sells her unique ceramics as well as her paintings. One of her specialities is the “Husebytomte” – the Huseby-elf, who is said to have been real. She also arranges pottery nights.
