skin cream

 Now that the season is changing and the nights are getting cooler you may need some hand cream to keep your skin feeling smooth. The best cream that we have is made by Olivina and comes in lemon, olive, lavender, and fig scents. It has an olive base - rich and creamy leaving the skin feeling smooth and smells wonderful!  Cost is $16.00

the task ahead

So... we are getting closer to having the Website up and running... maybe by Thanksgiving it will be available. Which is exciting. But for now we have to take pictures of all the things we want to put on the sight... hmmm...We are going to do that this weekend- I hope- but if we fail we will call Sarah who knows much more than we do and says it is easy. Sarah is creating our site which is looking really  good I might add.

we just got into the store the new book from John T. Spike- it is an amazing historical account of Michelangelo's young life. With incredible illustrations. It is a wonderful book to give as a gift to anyone who is interested in the history of art. You may wonder why we are selling this book - well we do sell many things that are Italian or relate to Italy- it is true those things are mostly related to fashion but...  he is my brother-in-law!

new clothing

We got so many wonderful new fall things in the store. Friday I spent all day unpacking boxes... of course it was that really stormy day so- it kept me busy.  Along with all the other boxes I got in I also had two boxes of Jill McGowan shirts and dresses. The fabrics are amazing - beautiful to look at and they feel great on. But most important you feel beautiful in them.
