The Old Second-Hand Shop

Roald Amundsens gate 15, Svolvær

The Old Second-Hand Shop is another of the locations of LIAF 2019’s “High Tides” programme. Originally, the building was erected around 1912 in order to house the photo gallery of the photographer Høy. From 1943 to 1996, “Lofoten konfeksjon” had a shop here. This was the place to shop for clothes in Svolvær, and the store was well known throughout the region. In more recent years, the property served Lofoten Industri as the location for its second-hand shop. They moved in 2017, and ever since the premises has remained empty – until now, when LIAF will open the doors of the old shop once again.
