Dove posso comprare Farragamo's?
No translation needed...Outlet Mall is universal!
At 70 % off, I could not resist these Farragamo leather riding boots and a silk tie for Rick.
I'm still thinking about a brown leather bag (purse) I saw at Tod's and the print with purple awnings I didn't buy at
Piazzale Michelangelo overlooking Florence..... oh well ....next trip!
Our lunch time radar took us to our favorite trattoria in Florence, Za-Za's for nourishment. They have really expanded in one year. Christy introduced us to this place several years ago and we always order the three soup platter. It just looks like baby food!
We were so disappointed when we walked into our special leather shop, Por Santa Maria, to find that Filippo was on holiday in Barbados but his "cousin" Gnardo was very attentive. No one has the character and charm of Filippo but he poured us each a glass of wine and "treated us like family"! As soon as he saw the pocket on my coat he called the tailor and 20 minutes later my coat was back - all fixed. In the meantime, Mary and Steve found the perfect leather coats to compliment London and California weather and our shopping day was almost over.......
We ended the day strolling by the gold shops on the Ponte Vecchio and taking in the sunset over the river. Arrivederci Florence!
