top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>One of the only trimmings stores in Florence with an on-site workshop, Passamaneria Valmar has been selling every conceivable tassel, trim, tieback, cord, and border for the last half century. And what’s not for sale in this tiny family run boutique on a smart street by the Palazzo Davanzati, will be made-to-order.

Diva-scovery: G. Benevento – Venice, Italy

to 10px; WIDTH: 400px; CURSOR: hand; HEIGHT: 300px; TEXT-ALIGN: center” alt=”” src=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_kcTb8DnPVW4/Sk9FllcDICI/AAAAAAAADPs/h4k9gSjBo9g/s400/158.JPG” border=”0″ />top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>This Venetian haberdashery opened in 1883, a family business that for the last 100 years has been handed down from father to son over 4 generations. Very few changes have been made – the store still stands on the Strada Nova (a little larger that in was when it began thanks to renovations by the founder’s son during his reign) and it still sells the same great inventory of fabrics, tassels, trims and bows, using the original counter and antique tools to roll out fabric and trims. Long considered an institution in Venice, it’s been awarded several medals for staying in business throughout WWII and is now one of the longest running family businesses in the province. Best of all, the prices are incredibly reasonable, making G. Benevento a must-shop stop on your Venetian travels!
