On Saturday 4th January sales started in Tuscany!
Season sales are the best way to find a bargain but be careful not to be fascinated by low prices and then cheated by low quality!
During the next days I will give you some suggestions about shops I like in Lucca and the first one is Zazzi in Via Calderia 13 at a walking distance from Piazza San Michele: a charming boutique where one can find hundreds of scarves and shawls traditionally weaved in Garfagnana factories. You can also see an original loom in the shop and usually on week ends a nice lady will be weaving all day long. I bought a very warm and colourful scarf for my mother at Christmas and I will visit the shop to see if I can find something for me too! 🙂
