Fall shopping in Florence

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!

 

One thought on “Fall shopping in Florence”

  1. Thanks so much Maren for one of the best and efficient days of shopping I have ever experienced! You took me to places I would have never found on my own in such a big, shop conjested city. I absolutley love the bags, boots, shoes and scarves you help me find. The kindness and “girly” kinship were much welcome too. And of course having someone who knew the shop-keepers and could speak Italian was a big bonus as well!! I would not hesitate for a moment to reccomend your services to friends and clients. It really did make me shop so much more focused and efficiently. Looking forward to my next trip to Florence with you. Sincerely, Kathy
