“Warm and Inviting little Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

It sells a wide variety of Christmas ornaments and a BIG selection of sweet treats. It's design is enchanting. It accepts Euros, GBR£ as well as Icelandic Krona. Pieces are wrapped well for travel. Nice to know the pieces I purchased are not available anywhere else in Europe/US as I search amazon and Ebay after my first visit for the things I'd liked. had to return to get them.

Some of the ornaments are overpriced compared with what you might choose to pay in Britain, is you aren't into less commercial baubles, trinkets and adornments.

“Takes you back to your childhood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

Well worth a visit, the assistant even looks like santa. Some very beautiful items but like everything in Iceland very expensive as around £12 a bauble. A little drive out from Akureyri and holds the worlds largest advert calander in the tower.

“Christmas Wonderland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

Its not like any other run-of-the-mill kind of souvenir shops. Its themed with Christmas!! and whatever comes to your mind about Christmas, you will find it in here. The way all the candies are strewn about the place tempts you to have a bit of all of them! Its definitely a place kiddies and the young at heart would enjoy!

“So cheesy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

If you brought the kids and they need a break from gorgeous scenery, then this is the place for you. It had many Christmas related things to buy, and seemed to have a cafe. It does not feel like Iceland though.

“Cute Christmas shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

Saw this on a flyer and went.
A cute shop with expensive Christmas decorations/snacks. Shop opens up once you enter , it is bigger than you would expect it.

However the grounds of the shop is interesting by itself, there is a small room/tower with a handpainted advent calender.

Was further away from Akureyri than expected , at least a 15-20 mins drive.
