Hidden Gems

One of my favorite parts of traveling is getting items and pieces that you can't get anywhere else. I found this purse at a local shop in Ísafjörður, Iceland when we were there a few weeks ago. It's handmade by a local wood worker and was literally one of a kind. I couldn't pass it up! Another item I've loved that was a local find is my leather purse from Florence, and I have lots of cool jewelry from other places. I try to go to local shops and markets when I'm in a new city (abroad or not) to get those hidden gems.

And when I'm not traveling, I like to get local jewelry and items from places online like Etsy. Check out my post here about great places to get unique jewelry! Have you found any hidden gems when you've traveled?
