Wow what a great find, and to get to photograph the place a real bonus.

Re: Artisan shop

The shop front nicely sets the scene, but it is the interior shots that really shine. Old technology in spades!

Re: Artisan shop

That's a great find. I bet there aren't many shops like that around now.

The handbags were very nice, he had an "antique" bag/case he was repairing, couldn't work out what it originally was for, looked like an old Avo bag, but wasn't as it didn't have Avo embossed anywhere, and was slightly the wrong shape.. But it was full of little details you just don't see any more, to make it easier to use.
