Fall is really here now with cool, sunny weather. I am happy because now I can wear boots! Am having some boots custom made for myself in camel leather and suede with a flat heel. I will have to wait a few weeks to get them, but well worth the wait.
I am excited about a new shop that I was introduced to this last week. It is a profumeria where they concoct custom made perfume for individuals in the old Florentine manner. Below is a photo of the “off the rack” perfumes which sell for 35 euro and up. You can select one you like, and then have them customize it for you. Next time I have an hour to spare, I am going to give it a try!
It has been an incredibly busy week with six groups of shoppers. A couple from Shanghai, a doctor from South Africa, girlfriends from Australia, newlyweds from Canada, a couple from New Jersey and a single lady from San Francisco. Everyone enjoyed the cool, sunny weather for shopping here in Florence. As usual, leather jackets, boots, scarves and gold jewelry were favorite purchases.
Scarves, ascots and pashminas!
