My hotel has Margaret's music boxes in each room, so I knew what I was looking for as the perfect holiday souvenir. When I arrived I recognised Margaret instantly from my internet research; she was warm and welcoming and was just finishing off stitching some...More

This shop has a beautiful selection of beautiful things. Added bonus is that those who work in the shop are part of the cooperative. It's been around for years with some of the original artists still contributing.

Kirsuberjatred is a cooperative of local artisans and every item in the stores is truly unique. I saw nothing like it in Reykjavik and strongly recommend a visit for those who want something "off-the-beaten path" that is more artistic than touristic. Objects in the shop...More
