Vintage Florence

Of course I couldn't help but sniff out a few vintage places in Florance. After a bad run in San Fransisco I was craving finding a piece of treasure. I only stumbled across a few places, but they all seemed pretty decent. First up was Street Doing Vintage Couture, a stone's throw from Duomo. Lots of nice scarves, but a little out of my price range. Loved the Pucci tie, but where would I wear it...
 
Next up was my favourite store find in Florence: Boutique Nadine. Such a lovely shop. Lots of shoes, and some racks of vintage dresses and, yes, finally, I found a prefect little day dress! And it was on sale, marked down to €35. Bargain. Very happy girl. Even happier when Edu swooped in and made it an extended Valentine's Day pressie. Yes...I know...I'm spoiled rotten.
A nice mix of old and new. Good style.
The last vintage store I came across was Vintage, no website, address below. Quite small, but seemed nice also.
Here's a different kind of vintage; old photo booths! We came across two but I suspect there are more. This one, on Via del Agnolo, and there was one by the train station.
Last of all was a surprise! Killing time before we headed to Siena we stumbled across this amazing looking flea market around the back of Fortezza da Basso.
We didn't have much time to look about, but it seemed really nice. Next time, Florence...
