    Selfoss is a small town in southern Iceland with nothing to do, but serving as a lodging base for the island tour.
    To enrich social life and tourist potential, town government started a program of rebuilding the town center. It's located just after the bridge when you enter Selfoss, by the old dairy factory (now a restaurant). You can see the map of what's planned to do - half of the project is done, while the rest should be finished in two years.
    Houses and shops look cute, however theme park like.
    Anyway it was nice to walk around as you have nothing else to do after dinner.

    We happened upon Gallery Floi quite by accident driving back to our rented holiday house from a nearby town. What a treat! Beautiful Viking beads made the traditional way, lovely ornaments. I purchased some beads and she also sells silver chains they can string on, all at very reasonable prices too. My husband bought some ornaments for gifts for family. Look for the Wool Centre sign out front, which has a Nordic-Fair Isle type symbol on it.

    Þingborg is a knitted sweater and yarn shop right on the Ring Road (route 1) outside Selfoss. If you're a knitter, then you might have heard the term the "Woolen Circle," which is a cute term that a few local fiber businesses created to publicize their shops for crafters visiting Iceland. This is one stop that has both yarn and knitted sweaters for sale. I'm betting they make more money from the knit sweaters, given the floor space devoted to it, but I was pleased that both were on offer, and the proprietress was quite helpful to the woman who was shopping for sweaters. She didn't have the pattern available for the sweater I saw and wished to knit, but offered other suggestions. Overall, I'm glad I stopped in and whether you're a knitter or just interested in a lovely Icelandic lopapeysa to take home as a souvenir, this is worth a quick stop on your ring road experience.

    I was looking for a shop that I could find unique gifts when I stumbled on this little gem. It's an amazing shop with high quality items at suprisingly decent prices. This is a great place to buy non-touristy gifts for you and others. The shop owner and her cute little dog are lovely. I definitely recommend shopping here.

    This is a wonderful place to buy a sweater, jewelry, toy, bag or small ceramic item. Even though we had been looking in Reykjavik, this was the place that we found our sweaters - beautiful! both of us are knitters, so it was wonderful to buy a sweater from a collective run directly by the women who knitted them. We also found a couple of other small gifts to bring back home. The woman who helped us was wonderful, working with us to find things that were just right for us, not steering us to more expensive items or to thins knitted by another member of the collective.

    This place had a very genuine feeling and the quality was excellent. Prices were very reasonably - much cheaper than in Reykjavik and with a greater variety of styles.

    I would highly recommend it.
