My Favorite Leather Shop in Italy

Il Gancio's was my favorite leather shop in Italy!  Michael and I discovered it randomly while walking down Via del Teminario after dinner one night.

All of their handbags are hand-sewn.  In fact, several ladies were stitching handbags right there in the shop, for all to see!  The store was filled with so much color and joy. 

Michael let me have the pick of the store...and I came home with a cute, soft leather satchel made of a delightful peachy-orange leather.  I figured it was the right color to use during all months of the year, so I anticipate getting a lot of use out of it!
