Inspired by a lovely reviews here i tried my luck on two different days and rang the bell, but there was no answer. So, keep in mind, your stroll there may be in vain. more »
Giuliano and his wife are a delightful couple who welcomed us into their shop and gave us a short tour. He demonstrated the press underground, and she showed us all the products they offer upstairs. The store has been around since 1612. They speak minimal English but were very eager to go on and on with all the intricacies of the items in the shops, like bracelets that have the GPS coordinates of Florence. They showed us pictures of their family and they even have a large drawing on display done by their grandchildren. The items were surprisingly cheap for such carefully crafted items, such as 15-20 for a bracelet and 10 for a Christmas ornament. Please visit with respect, lest this lovely shop be overrun and commercialized. I hesitated to write this review but the sheer happiness of the couple prompted me to share the experience and details with the world. The store is a little hard to find. See pictures for the door and which bell to ring. Then, go straight in to the courtyard.
Such beautiful, inexpensive pieces and the best customer service ever. Giuliano and his apprentice were so kind and put so much love into their work, and it shows. I’m so grateful to them for a fabulous experience.
