I would recommend anybody to buy a bag at this shop. I bought mine in November 2006 and have used it most days since and it still looks like new and up to date, as it is a classic style. Fantastic quality.

This is the place to get real, handcrafted leather goods. It is a small shop with one man actually sewing all his products. When you consider that everything is made by hand and the incredible quality, the prices are very reasonable.

Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district)
when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring
cars and buses close to the center of Venice.
Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking
Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes
with energy from travelers and students. Historic
palaces and former industrial buildings house some
departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture

Andrew, I didn't look at wallets, but the handbag for my wife was 145 euro - and a steal at that price. The quality is stunning.
