Sandeen’s still selling Scandinavian specialties

At Sandeen's Scandinavian Gifts, Kay Sandeen gracefully explains a myriad of candle choices to a customer while simultaneously battling with her half-century-old cash register, which won't add up the total.
"You've just got to talk to it nicely," she says of the cash register while repeatedly tapping a button and smiling.
Finally, it dings triumphantly, and the customer, in no hurry at all, gets her change.

East Sider hopes to bring holiday cheer to less-fortunate

Larson-Allen using social media to spearhead gift giving campaign

While some families may already have bought a myriad of gifts for the largest retail season of the year, LeeAnn Larson-Allen's mind is on those who might not be exchanging any gifts at all.
To that end, she's been running a small-time, East Side-based effort to get holiday gifts in the hands of East Siders who can't afford them for the past four years. Starting small, her first year she helped out three fellow East Side families, and it grew from there. This year, she's helped connect 40 families with sponsors, who help out strangers with Christmas gifts, and she's not through yet — she's hoping to surpass that by Dec. 25.
