You may have seen my earlier post (A Quiet Afternoon in Bellagio). The day after this post we went down into the town and criss-crossed Lake Como by ferry a couple of times. It was very cold but quite beautiful.

I didn't do much shopping in Bellagio but was fascinated by a small shop on the main shopping/waterfront strip, Maison Grandi. It had a selection of handmade lace from the early 1900s displayed in a stand-alone glass cabinet out the front of the shop. I was blown away by the beauty and intricacy of these pieces, and in awe of the makers.
Some of the pieces were for sale. If I remember correctly, even a small piece was worth about 600 Euros. I would have loved to have bought a piece but they were well out of my price range!
I did manage to buy some lovely pieces in Venice, but that's a story for another blog post.
Hope you have a great week.
