A chance to buy souvenirs and do good at the same time, this tiny little kiosk in Campo Santo Stefano sells items made by inmates at Venice's two prisons. Male prisoners produce the trendy Malefatte line of recycled plastic satchels and bags, while the women's jail has a cosmetics laboratory making skincare products using herbs from their organic garden on Giudecca. You can even buy fruit and vegetables direct from the prison (on Giudecca's Fondamenta delle Convertite) every Thursday morning. The kiosk's opening hours vary by the season, so check online or call before going.
