Ceramic Shopping in Nove, Italy!

Wednesday, July 27, 2016


I've wanted to come here for years! Thank you to my husband for making this dream come true. Nove is a small Northern Italian town with many ceramic shops, but I had my heart set on just one: La Ceramica VBC. Most of their products can be found in stores like Williams-Sonoma and Tiffany's, but they're sold for a fraction of the price in Nove. Thankfully they had a kids' table with markers and paper and a couple toys so Cam kept the kids happily preoccupied while I shopped. I was in and out in one hour, which I was proud of :) There are so many beautiful pieces in here - Mom, I wish you had been shopping with me!


I bought a set of dessert plates in this lace pattern and regret not picking out one of the pumpkin platters for Autumn. Next time...  right, Cam?!


I also bought a a set of dinner plates which I'll show in a coming recipe post, and a few of these pretty coffee cups below.


Next time I'd also love to visit the Copper Shop. If you ever get to go to Nove, this blog post was really helpful to read beforehand!

  1. OH MY TURQUOISE! I wouldn't have been able to leave without a few of those! And that lace pattern is beautiful and looks just like what you'd pick :) My sister spent a ridiculous amount of money in a ceramica shop in Ravello last year. Those Italians know their way around a kiln! ;)

  7. I wouldn't be able to contain myself in there! I loved the Japanese pottery stores but this stuff is my jam. I'm going to have to settle for Pier 1 for now. Some day I'll make it there!!!
