A shopper’s delight, today marks the start of Italian “saldi”

  1. Amy,

    I too fell in love with Cinque Terre many years ago. I have visited the area many times. During my visits, I have always stopped at a small store in the old town section of Monterosso al Mare to look at a set of tiles that show one of the five villages. I never purchased the tiles because I did not have a place to display them. Things have changed and now I am ready to make the purchase but I do not have any contact information for the store. If you, or any of your readers, have the information I would appreciate you sending it to me. I do have a picture of the tiles that I could send you if I had an email address.

    Thank you for your time and the wonderful blog you share with lovers of Cinque Terre.

    1. Ciao Pat!

      These villages are enchanting, aren’t they? Was the shop a little artisan ceramic shop on a little lane near the black & white striped church? If so, I know which one (it’s my favorite!).

      I’m in the process of setting up a dedicated email but it’s more complicated than I thought so my tech guy promised he’ll work on it for me tomorrow. It will be amy @cinqueterreimsider.com (take out the space between my name and the @). But don’t send until I give you the thumbs up, ok?

      Chat soon,
      Amy

      1. Thanks for the quick reply Amy.

        Yes, I think it was by the church and they did have other pottery. I will wait for your go ahead and then send you the picture of what I want.

      2. Ciao again!

        Ok, if that’s the right place then the name is Fabbrica d’Arte Monterosso. They have a page on Facebook but also have a website (www.fabbricadarte.com) and email (info@fabbricadarte.com). I think contacting them directly will be your best bet! 🙂

        I think you’re squared but just wanted to let you know my email is up and running! amy @cinqueterreinsider (just take out the space between my name and the @ symbol… trying to avoid getting spammed by bots!).

        Take care!
        Amy
