We liked the variety of stock in this store, and bought 3 art work prints of puffins, which we will love to put up on our walls as a reminder of our visit to Iceland.
Definitely recommended for browsing the local handiwork.

Great store with some beautiful items for sale! I walked around the shop a bunch of times because I wanted to buy everything. I ended up with a print of watercolor painting by a local artist and it is perfect. Great reminder of the beauty of the country, without breaking the bank. This place really has some great finds!

This is a cute little store amidst the main shopping area of Reykjavik. They have a wide variety of handcrafted works as well as some salmon skin crafts and a selection of Icelandic paintings.

There are a lot of touristy shops in Reykjavik but this one is a little gem! If you are looking for unique or original handcrafted gifts, or something for someone with a sense of humour, this is worth checking out! Prices are comparable to others in Iceland. Two thumbs up!
