Two entrances, two guys, two passions, two worlds... too cool! 

Two stores in one for discover the bohemian soul of the Florentine Oltrarno

You surely know that Oltrarno is the most bohemian area of Florence, the most unconventional and original. Well then let's start from here to discover the florentine rive gauche and its smiling talents. 
From Porta Romana you can walk by Via Romana or down to Via de' Serragli. No matter what street you decide to go, both will take you to one of the loveliest shop in Florence. 

Or better... two shops in one! Two entrances for the same shop and two worlds inside it: Vintage clothes and fresh Flowers. And two crazy guys who personally run everything: Natalia, a passionate collector of vintage clothing and antiques, and Davide a creative gardener and flower designer. 



The uniqueness of Due store is right in the harmony of contrast that they were able to recreate. The freshness of flowers, so delicate and short-lived and the eternal appeal of antiques and vintage, evergreen fashion.  

Here you can find original bon ton dresses for dreaming la Dolce Vita and the best griffes of evergreen fashion (Gucci, Ferragamo, Chanel just to name a few)  but maybe you will leave the shop by purchasing a bouquet of fragrant tulips, ironically packed with ties original from 50's. Well, double bargain: something beautiful ends quick but something else remains forever! 



And so on… Pots filled with colorful daises are displayed next to some A-line dresses from 60's so it’s immediately Pop-Art! But also men’s accessories such us wooden pipes and cigarette mouthpieces, hanged on vegetables plant (on sale, of course!).

Sometimes the shop is a mess because always evolving, but if you deep look, you can discover curious corners and real rarities. A visit here is not only recommended but... due!
