The Filipino Paper Lady

Everyday when I walk out of my apartment, I pass a variety of small artisan shops. The flower shop, handmade paper store, fabric store, and small puppet store. Two days ago I walked into the handmade paper store and met the owner. She told me of how only 20 years ago Perugia was full of craftspeople. It was a town swarming with artists. She is closing her store in December, this town is rapidly changing. 


  1. its a pitty that these kind of things are disapearing :(

  2. i'm half filipino and it's a shame to know that her store's closing is quickly approaching
