Welcome to our new website!
Welcome to Caterina’s new website!
We updated our site to be easily readable on mobile devices. We hope you find it easy to use.
We have all the same products as before . . . and a few new discoveries!
We are in our 14th year as a store, bringing you quality European housewares from European artisans. Our mission has not changed: to bring to market at affordable prices functional works of art of enduring quality. While we enjoy transporting you to another world and another time, when life moved more slowly and deliberately, we cannot do that in the virtual world without cutting edge technology!
This is our third website. We started out building our own for $1000 with the tech equivalent of bubblegum and baling wire. It had about the same functionality. We graduated in 2009 to a proprietary site hosted by Americaneagle.com, the website giant out of Chicago. It has served us well, but outlived its usefulness when Google stopped searching non-responsive sites. Now we have replatformed with BigCommerce.com and look forward to working with them to make your shopping experience easy and secure. Thanks to Gere and Thanya and their team at Holony Media for making this happen!
We hope you bear with us as we work out glitches in the new site. Let us know if you find something that does not work for you. We value your insight as well as your business!
