Places I Love in Oak Park: Selleria Veneta

 My love of handbags is exceptionally well documented, and I am very fortunate to have an amazing Italian luxury bag boutique literally down the street from my house. Not only do they offer an extensive selection of gorgeous hand-crafted Italian-made handbags, but also jewelry, key fobs, wallets and men’s accessories. Owners Cecilia and Moses are knowledgeable and passionate about their products, and they’re also as nice as can be, friendly and helpful. No snooty shop proprietors here. They’re as welcoming and down-to-earth as it gets.

 All of the clothing in the images shown is from my collection and is either available on the website, or soon to be listed for sale. Bags and accessories (except for shoes worn by our models Heather and Joy) are all from Selleria Veneta. Next month’s “staff picks” edit on our home page will feature Italian and Italian-made products and these pictures will figure prominently, but I couldn’t wait to show off these great bags with my clothes. Moses took a lot of these pictures himself and I love how you get a little glimpse of our neighborhood along with all the fabulous Italian eye candy.

 Selleria Veneta is located at 140 N. Oak Park Avenue, Oak Park, IL and you can contact them at (708) 948-7429 or check out their website here
