Owner is very helpful and friendly. Shopped all around Siena and found his prices to be the best. Went back three times to purchase objects I had seen in other shops at higher prices.

The owner was very friendly and helpful as I looked for some Tuscan pottery. He shipped it back to the U.S. And the packing was phenomenal. It all arrived in tact within 2 weeks of purchase date.
