All the way from Italy


I was mainly attracted to this shop because of the integrated bench outside the show window, but after reading Lo Spaventapasserai's website, I'm even more interested! The clothing sold in this boutique is designed and produced in Italy - something pretty rare in our "made in China" days. I think I'll have to make a trip back and look inside. I think I could use a little something new. For more red, visit Ruby Tuesday.

  3. The bench is nice. This place sounds like they might be good employers, too!

  4. It looks like a warm place to sit, and if the place has the sense to not be selling stuff from that part of the world at the expense of jobs in a free society, so much the better.

    Regarding your question at my blog, there were no objections to taking the shots in the library. Another comment noted that when they had been there, people had been working in the library, so there was no photography permitted. If the rules are still in place, perhaps they're not in play on weekends.

    1. Thanks for your answer to my comment. I was there in the summer, so the "politicians" were not in session. But I think there were people working in the library, so that's probably why we weren't allowed to take pictures. It's nice to see your though - that was my one of the highlights of that tour!

  5. Sitting on that bench in the sun watching customers come and go could be rather nice.

  7. Beautiful shot and quaint looking place!

    Unfortunately, nowadays even sweatshops have gone global and one has to question what is really behind the "Made in Italy" label:
    Crackdown on Chinese Sweatshops in Prato, Italy. Sad world we live in.

    1. Hmmm... thanks for the link to the article! I guess you can't always believe everything you see.

  8. I wonder if they sell any of those wonderful Italian shoes. I agree about the uniqueness of anything not made in China! Looks like a nice shop!

  9. Ah, Genoa. I have been to many places in Italy, but not yet Genoa. Fortunately, I can always find a place to sit down and enjoy the sights in Italy.

  10. I never even noticed the bench until you mentioned it and I, too, look for places that make clothes here and not from "China".

  11. If it is Italian I expect it won't be cheap.

  12. You probably do not know how many Chinese factories there are in Prato, not far from Florence. It may happen that something is 'Made in Italy' but not by Italian hands, and quite often in appalling working conditions.

  13. Anyway, I like the shop and the bench!
