The shop in the first panel is called Gaga, like the lady, but is unrelated. They had a bunch of cool hats, bowls, scarves, knick-knacks, just a bunch of interesting stuff. The witchy shop I’d read about was called Nornabúðin, but as I said in the comic, it didn’t appear to exist anymore. It’s too bad, because it seems like it was pretty interesting! It’s possible that I just had the place wrong? But when I went into the store I thought was the right address, it turned out to be a motorcycle gear store, and the big gruff pipe-smoking guy confirmed that. So.. I guess it closed or moved?

The antiques store, Fríða Frænka had a ton of cool, old stuff. But as I said, none of it really seemed reasonable for me to buy. I read online last summer that it was going to close, but it still seemed to be open when I went back to Iceland last December. So..?

Last but not least, the photography museum is kind of small, as it’s located on the 6th floor of a public library. But it seems like they’ve always got interesting exhibits showing!
