{at the shops: florence & florence, uk}












. . . happened across florence & florence, an utterly charming vintage shop run by mother and daughter, christine and annie florence, who have a love for beautiful things and "specialise in finding exciting second-hand pieces", filling their little shop with delicate glass compotes and filigreed pepper pots befitting the most elegantly extravagant dinner party on a mid-spring evening, scalloped cake stands and silver sugar tongs perfect for high-tea on a sunday afternoon, and tea & cake sets that will have you dreaming of the most romantic early april picnics . . .

Adoring these dainty items, and I am most definitely dreaming of the most lovely picnics with these beautiful pieces ... oh how perfect that would be! I'm especially melting over the set in the 5th photo on the left and that gorgeous cake stand on the right.

Thank you for your kind comment today, made my day!

Sounds like a very dangerous shop to enter with a credit card and an empty {vintage} shopping basket!

Truly wonderful items. And all just perfect for a pretty tea.

For now I have a little Etsy shop for vintage items I have picked up through my travels, but I do have dreams of having a great shop like the one here... You can't help what wonder the history of the items... Thanks for the wonderful post!
