Really cool gift shop full of nice things, not the usual puffins. :) Absolutely worth the visit if you are looking for gifts. They were very friendly and offered free coffee and cookies too!

I stopped here expecting to see the expected tourist items, but instead found a wide range of Icelandic goods. Prices were reasonable. The owner allowed me to connect to the store's wifi. Friendly, high quality, good prices.

Very nice and unique pieces in this shop. A bit pricey though. I think my sister bought a small Christmas ornament. The prices matched quality.

We wandered into this beautiful shop because we were lost. The shop has lovely items for sale, and the woman working there (I don't know whether she was the owner) was extremely helpful.

So many nice things to buy and the service was excellent. I was trying to kill time while waiting for my camper to be ready. The ladies offered me coffee and the prices in the store were very reasonable.

This shop had such nice gifts and kitchen items. We found beautiful hand glazed bowls to display our Icelandic rock collections - exactly what we were looking for.

The helpful and kind shopkeeper has a great selection of gifts that are uniquely Icelandic and other quality items. I love the jewelry made with volcanic rocks and felted wool - what's more Icelandic?
