Concierge.com's insider take:
The Carbonell family has been crafting exquisite handmade fans for four generations, since 1860. Handheld models range from the affordable ($25) to the elaborate, with one-off antique pieces selling for up to $9,000. If nothing else, visit the company's Web site to learn the sign language of fans—for example, how a señorita of yesteryear could wordlessly reprove her lover for ogling another woman, simply by passing her fan from one hand to the other.
