Visited here today and wasn't disappointed. I love unique, independent stores like this one. Lovely range of art and prints and items made locally. Staff were cool and had great customer service.....even when I changed my mind 10 minutes after purchasing and decided on another print.
Could easily be missed so keep your eyes peeled!
Would recommend!

There are some unique souvenirs in this shop, not your run-of-the-mill tourist trap. One of the best stops along Laugavegur.

Foa was the only souvenir shop that I liked in Reykjavik. They offered truly funny and/or beautiful items designed by icelandic artists. And also the sales lady gaves us some insight on the items we bought.

Every time I get over to Iceland I always make sure to check out this little store. As a designer myself I really love seeing the work of the local artists and designers. Definitely check out this place for a unique gift if visiting Iceland!

Lovely shop with design products. The products were very unique which you cannot find the same one in other stores. That's really great. Reasonable price with authentic Icelandic souvenirs. Staff was really friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!
