We spent the day trying to find this place on the suggestion of a coworker. Really wish we wouldn't have put in so much effort.

We will be in Venice in June and this looks like such a fun experience and memory to create! Venice will be in the middle of our trip and I worry about the masks being broken as we continue on our travels. Can you assist with shipping back to Canada?
