  What to buy?
by iandsmith

There we were, wandering the streets inside the walls of San Marino when we noticed much colour and sensed an odour. Well, several odours really.
This was a candle shop that reeked of wax but many other fragrances vied for one's olfactory senses.
Unlike the cameo shops, this lady was actually making the stuff on the premises
Entranced as we were our feet slid inside the shop and its wonders were many. We cheerfully spent 20 minutes in there (and some money, though not so cheerfully) admiring the variety of works on display.

What to buy: If you're looking for something different, even if you have some candles already, I will guarantee this shop has stuff you've never seen before. Ideal place to find a gift for someone special, particularly if they're already stocked up with basic presents.

What to pay: As much as you want to spend. They have a broad range of items and prices.

Directions: Inside the walls on the southern side of the city.
Theme: Local Craft

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
