    Trankokeriet Antikk

    A delver's dream, this place: a chaotic antiques shop stacked floor to ceiling with curiosities and collectibles, from nautical pieces such as old diver's helmets and barometers to traditional Norwegian craft pieces, ceramics, vintage dolls and design pieces. It's not cheap, but it's huge fun just to wander round and see what's for sale. There's a quirky cafe here, too.

Follow your nose and pick up a selection of his inspired work, including truffles flavoured with cloudberry, send a 'chocolate postcard', or go for instant gratification in the form of ice cream or hot chocolate.
