The museum shop Høkeren is housed in an old 18th-century building, which has been carefully restored by Kerteminde Municipality in collaboration with the museum. Høkeren collaborates with a number of suppliers across the country in order to be able to offer a product range that is as authentic as possible. From floor to ceiling, the store is filled with all sorts of goods, from toys to shingles. In short, a really old-fashioned 'mixed general store' that makes you feel transported to the beginning of the 20th century.
Høkeren is open during the summer season and from mid-November to December 23, when there is plenty of opportunity to buy Christmas presents. In Høkeren you will find the old Danish Christmas decorations such as Epiphany lights, angel toys and Christmas rock sheets that grandma had.

Høkeren is located in an authentic environment. That is why the courtyard has topped cobblestones, and the shop itself has stepping stones and door steps. We are ready with a helping hand if there is a need for it.
The idea of furnishing an old hugger's stall arose in 1983 on the occasion of Kerteminde Handelsforening's 100-year anniversary. In collaboration with the Trade Association, Kerteminde Museum, Kerteminde Municipal School and Kerteminde Municipality, the stall in Trollegade was furnished with original furniture from some of the many old shops that were closed down in these years. The municipality made premises available, while the Trade Association was helpful with the administration and procurement of goods. Pupils from the municipal school looked after the stall, and the municipality supported the project financially. The students gave the stall the name "Høkeren", the operation of which has since been completely transferred to Kerteminde Museums. In the early 1900s, there was a hawker's shop in the property.
