A little shop in Firenze...


A few years back I traveled to Florence to study Architecture and Design for a while, through my University program at the time...one day while wondering the streets after a siesta I stumbled upon a cute little purse shop called Sol Gabriel...


Needless to say, I dragged my friends in there to find the lovely owner arranging her merch...tons of unique handmade bags, which she makes herself...



She has a great eye for detail and even the insides are not forgotten...

**So the other day when I came across her business card, I thought it might be nice to share her work on my blog. Let me tell you though, her designs come in and the are snatched up pretty fast....worth checking out her site if your interested! I bet she would even do commissions...**
