I've discovered some wonderful little shops in Rome. The first as you can see is a specialist glove shop. It's run by an elderly lady just down from Piazza Venezia. The gloves are all hand made and the selection of styles and colours is amazing. A little note in the window says that gloves can be sent all over the world, and you don't have to pay until you receive them. Now that's what I call service. The second shop I spotted was one that sells upholstery trimmings, some definitely from the 60's and 70's - the sort that you can never really find in modern shops - fabulous for bags and belts. I might be tempted!
