Sempre Italiano opened in LaConner, Washington in the Spring of 2006. We created our store to bring the finest of Italian products at affordable prices to our clients. We feature hand painted Italian Ceramics from Florence, Chianti, Orvieto, Vietri and Sicily. From small dipping bowls to exquisite large platters, vases and table lamps, we offer a broad array to select from. With a nod to the French, we now import the bright and beautiful colors of Provence. Our textiles include 100% cotton Teflon treated Jacquard linens, acrylic-coated cotton tablecloths, and a large assortment of napkins, placemats and dishtowels. We travel to Italy at least once a year to discover new and unique products to bring into your home. In addition to our ceramics and linens Sempre Italiano is proud to have teamed up with Niche Tours to offer a variety of annual tour packages to Italy.

In 2004, Laura moved to Florence, Italy for a period of 6 months to begin the process of locating Italian artisans and discover the best ceramic factories throughout Tuscany and the south of Italy. This life journey offered her a fantastic opportunity to explore the beauty of Italy and import the finest ceramics at the best possible prices. On a buying trip in early 2005, Laura met Raffaele on the Island of Capri ... And, the rest is "Destino"! Raffaele and Laura moved to LaConner Washington to share a dream of opening a store and working together. This has allowed them to expand their imports to include far more products and bring back treasures to the US that they hope others will love as much as they do! Their knowledge and love of Italy and their imports is clear!
