Items here made initaly and are lovely. Fused glass jewelry, lovely ceramics at moderate price, but other reviews of the sailcloth bags failed to mention that the very lovely bags were over 200 euros each, some styles well over that So come prepared to pay

This is a great little specialty store in Riomaggiore that will tempt your budget. Locally made items in the spirit of the Cinque Terre. Lots to find in ceramics, bags and trinkets. A really great selection at very reasonable prices.

Simone and his Lucia have a different shop. Basically very nice ceramics from Tuscany. You don't see these kind of products in the Cinqueterre shops. Worth visiting. Highly recommendable purses and backpacks !
