Giovanna,
I just checked that website and it's great! Although it just makes me want to buy more stuff!

I can speak for both places mentioned in Siena. I purchased at both, and am suffering buyers regret anyway for items I didn't buy!

Debby, Whatever it is worth, my lovely wife--Susanna Ceramica--likes the shops in both Orvieto and San Gim. for RETAIL outlets. I thought you meant buying directly from the factories at bargain prices--hence my list above. Shipping home is feasible, but will wipe out any savings you may have gotten compared to USA prices. I like to kid her when I see the same items appear in the POTTERY BARN sale catalog

Ah Bob, spoken like a silly man...it's not the savings, it's the selection and the fact that it's hand made and that you have wonderful trip memories whenever you look at it! By the way, it's Williams Sonoma that is now carrying the ceramics I bought in Provence!

OK--OK--I must admit I do enjoy throwing in a barb in these shopping threads just to get a reaction. You are correct--it is a guy thing !

That's ok, I love harassing my husband because the first thing he likes to to is find a Tabacci with Cubans and it never fails that they are stale!
