How to Support Italy Without Leaving Your House

The impact of the Coronarivus (COVID-19) is expected to have severe economic repercussions on the Italian economy. As soon as things return to normal, I will be here providing you with helpful tips and guides on how to travel to Italy with kids (sign up for my Free Travel Planner & email updates here). In the meantime, here are three ways we can help support Italian artisans and small businesses without leaving your house!


1 // Amazon's Made in Italy shop Did you know Amazon has many products made by Italian companies and artesian in Food, Home, Apparel and Beauty on its Made in Italy Page. Each item has been carefully selected for exemplifying traditional Italian manufacturing produce. Click on the below link to view

Some of my favorites are......

Floto Women's Saddle Bag in Yellow Italian Calfskin Leather - handbag shoulder bag

2 // Shabby Sheep Design Clothing and Accessories British born, Shabby Sheep's Head Designer Eva Lock has lived in Italy with her husband, dogs and chickens since 2005 having escaped the earlier agony of Advertising in London. She and her husband sell fun Italian inspired shirts and gifts.


Here are some of my favorites ...

Men's T-Shirt Vespa Design















Kid's T-Shirt Italian Flag Colors
















3 // Search Etsy for Italian Made Products Support Italian Artisians by searching for Italian made products on Etsy. While on Etsy.com, after searching for a product, on the left side of the screen you will see "Shop Location" and a place where you can type in "Italy".


Here are some of my favorites...


Women's Rings from Donipreziosi Jewelry & Co. located in Cardito, Italy
