What you'll do
Florence is celebrated for it's leather. It's difficult to come to this beautiful city and not want to go home with a wonderful, new leather jacket or accessory to boast about! I'd like to help you find the best quality and authentic Made in Italy, or better yet, Made in Florence products. There is so much choice out there that it's difficult to be certain if you're getting the real deal. Fine quality leather doesn't come cheap but that doesn't necessarily mean that if you pay top dollar (or euro!) that you're getting top quality. I will take you to some of the best new and historic boutiques which offer great products and fine craftsmanship. Some of these shops have passed through several generations of artisans. If you do not see the day or time you are interested in, please contact me and I will do my best to accomodate you! Then, at the end of the day you may need an extra suitcase to carry all your beautiful new leather goods home with you!
Ever since I was a child I have loved fashion and I have always tried to cultivate my own personal style. I moved to Florence from Canada 20 years ago and enrolled in a 3 year Fashion Marketing course with the acclaimed fashion institute, Polimoda. I now work as a sales consultant for luxury brand, Salvatore Ferragamo, with expertise in Ladies' Leathergoods and have developed my own business, Shop In Florence. I love meeting new people and sharing my love of fashion with them. Florence is the perfect city to do this!
