Visited this shop in June 2018 and was pleased with the experience. It was not busy and in the basement I found the cave of Grýla, the Christmas witch in which you can see her through the crevice opening. I was curious about her so I did some research and learned that she was said to snatch up misbehaving children, and turning them into delicious stew. Outside the shop there are also some awesome elf homes with windows you can peer into so see their little tables, chairs and beds.
