Personalized sandals on the Island of Capri

We just got back from a wonderful week on the Amalfi Coast in Italy.  During the day we spent on the beautiful Capri Island, my wife and our daughter had a very unique retail experience.  The island is famous for handmade sandals.  They were invited to try on one of the many different samples in the shop, they choose a few accessories and while we went for lunch, an on-site artisan worked on finishing the sandal.  In a world of mass consumption, it's good to see a personalized touch in the shopping experience that celebrates local craft.
