Overview

A small shop filled with handmade wonders. Original gift items and prestige. Love for the traditional handicrafts of Florence lives in special gifts in leather, wood and paper. Thanks to the ancient handicraft secrets transmitted for generations, we keep alive the traditions and passions of the past.

What a cute shop, and such a friendly woman serving inside. We purchased a small wooden diorama for our wall to remember Florence by and the lady explained her husband hand tooled these things himself. Excellent service for truly unique art!
