H & M finally opens in Campo San Luca

I'm off to explore the wonders contained in the newly opened H&M store in Campo San Luca.  It's where the former Burger King was.  I've been patiently waiting months for this! They originally announced a September opening, but it was delayed. Why is that a surprise? Everything happens on Italian time. Translation: SLOWLY. It will be lovely to have another alternative for clothes shopping right here in the city.

Ok- I have to run catch the vaporetto to Rialto. I'll report more on my return!

Ciao tutti!
OK - I've returned from my little adventure.  Here it is--- the brand new H & M at Campo San Luca, all 4 floors of it, all women's clothes and accessories!!  I did not get what I set out to shop for (new socks), but I did come home with a nice new pair of blue jeans. Grazie, H & M!!!

And, one more fabulous photo before I exit.  My view of the Rialto bridge as I waited for the vaporetto about 4:30 today. It just doesn't get much better than this.

And, what are the prices like, Karen? Did you get skinny jeans?

The Rialto photo is so beautiful.

Yvonne- prices are quite reasonable by Venice standards.
And yes, I did buy a pair of Italian skinny jeans. Now I have 2 pr, one black, one blue. I should make il padrone very happy! Still can't bring myself to thow away my US Faded Glory jeans though, I'm hanging on to them for stay at home or work in the garden days!

Won't be long until you are back. The weather lately has been very nice. Maybe San Martino did bring us a bit of "Indian summer" after all!

See you soon!
