At last, after endless trekking, we finally ended up in the right spot. In one of the narrow crowded lanes leading off of St. Mark’s Square, there is a small shop full of old books and unique items. Our treasure is one of these unique items in particular, an ancient wooden box about the size of a briefcase. Well polished and cared for, you can still tell it is very old. Inside, set in a dark colored velvet backing, is a revolver, a crucifix, silver bullets, a rosary, and a small vial of holy water. It is a Vampire Hunting Kit!
Unfortunately, the owner had closed his shop for the whole weekend during our visit and we were not able to purchase it.😳
We love Venice. The crowds of visitors are intense during the day, as the narrow streets and bridges don’t allow for much room. But when you stay overnight, as soon as evening hits, and the day visitors leave, the streets clear out. You can have many a small bridge to yourself, and there are so many wonderful choices of restaurants for dinner.
We enjoyed our treasure hunting in Venice, and now we have the name of the store. So, the quest moves forward. To Be Continued!
