Robert J.-do you know if anyone sells authentic venetian...

Is there any place on Burano that sells lace made in Venice? that was really the primary reason I was going there..more of my interest than my husbands.

I'm glad to have found this out! Thank you!

Most of the lace shops around Burano will look you full in the face and swear that theirs is true Burano lace. Well, if selling it in Burano makes it Burano lace ,so be it.

However the Scuola di Merletti at Piazzza B. galuppi 187 (closed Tuesdays) is basically a museum of Burano lace showing genuine examples . The school for lace making, which gives th establishment its name, is now only just about operational. It does occasionally offer courses in lace-making and you may find one or two of the older lace-makers around the Scuola making lace who might, for a substantial price, let you buy some . If they do, it is a real favour and you are lucky - it is really scarce.
