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!

Small but very lovely shop. Selling design products. I hope they could make more types of products because each one is so cute and worth the price. Highly recommend!

A very good place with amazing Icelandic handcraft souvenirs. Obviously the owner has a very good taste of artworks. You can feel the items are carefully selected and well organised. Highly recommend for people looking for some unique stuff made in Iceland.

The shop is so cute, I had been looking for some prints during my whole trip and finally found some here, unfortunately my favorites were out of my price range but they did have some more reasonable priced items
