Australian “Italian Style”??

28 Jan

From Etsy Finds,

Found it odd that it’s all made in Italy, but their location is Sydney. All the items say they ship from Australia, too.
This is there “who is” statement on their website:
“Wishing to offer the best of “italian style”, the high quality of “made in Italy” at a fair price, our company sells its products in the Australian market through chosen retailers.”
