Tantalizing Treasures

The Tantalizing Treasures Sale is a biannual fundraiser for the Swedish American Museum, where new and/or gently used donated items are sold during a day-long event open to the public where proceeds benefit the Museum.

Upcoming Tantalizing Treasures Sale

Tantalizing Treasure Sale is back on Saturday, April 16, 2016!
