Handbag Heaven

A good friend requested photos of the new handbag I bought in the leather market, the Loggia del Mercato Nuovo, so here it is!
I've been told, and hope it's true, that handbag hardware is a good indicator of quality. The hardware on this bag looked particularly sturdy.
Don't forget to bargain. While credit cards are accepted here, you will get a lower price for cash. The price of my bag dropped €13 because I paid cash. Had I been a bit more aggressive, as I would have been in Mexico, I'm sure the price would have dropped even more.


  1. The Italians drive a harder bargain than the Mexicans. You have to be on your way out from under the awning for them to come down considerably. But that looks like a nice bag.

  2. Of course you had to have something leather from Florence ! Seems I remember something similar !
