We bought some plates and ornaments. Fairy prices and staff so friendly. The handmade quality is top and it worth a visit befor climbing the tower or visit the Cathedral.

This is a wonderful shop next to the church with very helpful staff. They shipped our purchases back to New York very quickly, and they arrived in perfect condition. Highly recommended.

Nice store and wonderful stuff. Everything they have is handmade there, in the wonderful town of San Gimignano. The attentions to detail is phenomenal. We bought a Christmas ornament and a nativity piece (fantastic!). The owner was so friendly and professional.
