The Kind Collector
Why locals love it
A hidden gem amidst the chaotic disorganised Skeifan, there is Góði Hirðirinn (the Kind Collector). Stuff given by locals is sold in this place so you can lose yourself browsing through old TV's, retro sofas and chairs, old paintings from Icelandic artists and for travels you can find cheap cutlery, pans and dishes.
Why you should visit it
If you want to see real Icelandic people, go to this place. Families, teenagers, students, the elderly, new Icelanders... everyone goes to this place to find something that they need, or don't need.
Useful kitchen equipment, furniture, jewelery and books. If possible, visit the place early.
