Angels of the City

Just back from a family holiday based in Florence. Its so lovely over there – the architecture, the countryside, the weather, the food (and wine!) and THE CLOTHES!!! Of course I did a fair bit of shopping, mostly vintage – but some charity. This is the closest I could find to a charity shop in Florence. It sprung up one day in a small church in the Oltrarno district. They are a non-profit called Angels of the City who distribute clothing, food parcels, hot meals and a helping hand to those in need in Florence. And here are Simonetta and Laura who ran the sale (apologies for poor photo quality). More on what I bought later …
