Mondays in Iceland - #13

Nornabúðin lokar.

Nornabúðin, 2006

The witch shop on Vesturgata is now closed, perhaps a victim of the Kreppa, or perhaps closed for other and more personal reasons. It isn't the kind of place which (witch?) can be replaced by a franchise; I guess there could be a "mom and pop" witch store but that would, by definition, be a whole different thing. The store was delightful and the resident witch most enchanting. This sign was the most visible artifact (from the street at least) of what was, in reality, a superlative art installation.
