Curious Curio Shop in Florence's Oltrarno Neighborhood
This shop is delightfully curious. The displays mix paper art like collages and laser cut-outs with collections—cameras, desk chairs, or both. There's a wall display of antique Penguin books arranged in a grid to show their stark black and white covers. The store holds constant surprises with its creative arrangements of art and antiques—it's as much a gallery as a shop. I found myself studying each display trying to find the quirk or the connection to all the others.
