I have been receiving requests for various items from Florence to be shipped to the US, Canada and Australia. Although the shops are closed and everyone is still under stay at home orders, we can have some items shipped. The store owners and very worried about the future as Florence counts on tourism to survive. I am doing my part to support the economy by ordering 50 small scarves to use as face coverings. Silk is one of the preferred materials to use in this way. Our darling Ricardo is helping me with this. He is doing fine at home, but eager to be back at work.
Ceramics can be shipped also. Anastazija does a great job of packing, and guarantees against breakage. I love my little oval tray for appetizers or cookies.
Of course jewelry can be shipped easily! I have lots of photographs of earrings, rings, bracelets and necklaces that I can share.
Handbags are easy to ship also. One of my favorites is the handbag that doubles as a backpack. This comes in lots of colors too!
Although Chia and I are stuck in Seattle under the stay at home rules, I hope to return to Florence soon! I hope that all of you are staying safe and healthy.
