You have to differentiate yourself: Cristalflint's advice

The owner of Cristalflint goes straight to the heart of the matter: “Due to today's inflation of imported products with price competition, originality and quality become the most important values on which to focus. Today, shops must offer excellent handcrafted products and absolute novelties to differentiate themselves. You have to look for niche products in order not to feel too much pressure coming from the online competition with big brands.”


“We started many years ago in 1980 – he told us – when my grandfather Giuseppe opened his shop, and today we are considered leaders in Palermo in the sector of giftware, furniture and wedding lists. 


Beauty, quality, innovation and functionality have always been our cornerstones, and we continue to keep up with the times by renovating our shops and offering products that are always in step with cutting-edge design.


Among the brands we sell, there are: Alessi, Bugatti, Villeroy & Boch, Sambonet, Rosenthal, Seletti, Baci Milano, Tognana, Unitable, Serafino Zani, Ottaviani, Cartapietra, Agave Quadri, Arte Mariani, Linea Sette, P&V Lighting, Axo Light, Incantesimo design, Argenesi, Panzeri, Britto. However, we are always on the lookout for new products. We want to give our customers something different from large retailers, especially made-in-Italy products that transmit the value and history of those who created them, of the materials, of the territories.


We scout for the latest products mainly by attending trade fairs, where we look for innovative, original and quality products.
