While wandering the streets of San Polo, my husband and I stumbled upon this mask shop completely unexpectedly. It was the first time we had been prompted to enter a shop since arriving in Venice days earlier. This mask shop, run by 5 artists, is a kaleidoscope of colors -- feathered masks adorn the walls; hand worked leather masks peek around corners; colorful marionettes full of personality dangle from the ceiling. This shop is a real treasure. All handmade, the goods are pricey, but well worth the cost! Prices vary from inexpensive (30€ for small masks) to extremely costly (350€ for simple handmade leather masks -- I didn't even ask about the more elaborate ones!). But after wandering Venice another full day, I insisted on returning to purchase a reasonably priced (80€) leather mask and I am so glad that I did! No photos allowed inside, but if you make a purchase, the shop owner let's you run wild! Will have to add pictures once I'm home! You can also visit the workshop, but at 120€ per person, it was a little steep for us.
