I visited Lucky Records first, and I didn't see anything in 12 Tonar, except the t-shirts, that Lucky didn't have. Worth a stop if you're in the area, but don't go too far out of your way.

Was a decent record store. I wish I had looked up more local Icelandic artist. Has a wonderful sitting room and devices to test out products. A good place to shop.

I have been collecting records for 35 years. I always love to go into a record shop to veiw old and unusual records. There is a fairly good selection of vinyl here and some very interesting items. Good to go in and browse.
