About

Stockmannsgården was a beautiful building with 10 rooms. Knud Ibsen, Henrik Ibsen's father, ran an assorted retail store on the ground floor in the main house, and in a short time he became one of the largest taxpayers in the city.

He imported both red, white and grape wine from France. From England he took home yarn, wool and cotton goods, and from Altona (now part of Hamburg) canvas and woolen goods. The product selection could also include luxury goods such as silk products, lace and ivory chambers, mirrors and other glassware and brass articles, optical articles and even marshmallows.
