HtCC: Florence and Florence

Whats better than tea and cake? Nothing. Silly question.

What goes well with tea and cake? Pretty but practical sets.

Florence and Florence is an online vintage shop, set up by Christine and Annie Florence, a mother and daughter who share a love for gorgeous items and specialise in finding “beautiful second-hand pieces which have already had a previous life” then they “re-love” them, making them shiny and new(looking)! Clean vintage, which personally is the only way I like vintage.

They don’t do just crockery and cake stands, but also have amazing collections of old Penguin books and old maps (I was quite tempted by the old map for the area around where I went to Uni)

Wouldn’t it be great to have whole shelves of old style Penguin books? I may have to start hunting in the charity shops!
