Toso drogheria or Flora products for your home

In Trieste there is a magical little shop, ”Toso drogheria”,where it seems the time has stopped.When you enter this little kingdom of all utensils a decent household needs, it becomes clear to you, that it will take some time to see all the hidden treasures on the shelves.Last time I’ve been there I decided to find something connected with plants, just for My Botanical Garden.It became pretty soon clear to me, that Flora is here offering so many products, that it would be difficult to decide:  brooms , candies, soaps, wooden utensils, rope, tea, pigments ……Have a look and choose something fro yourself!

  1. When I worked in inner South London, in Rotherhithe, there used to be a shop that was smaller and less pretty, but a bit similar. It was run by an old Jew and if you went in there, you got not only a bottle brush or whatever slightly out of the way object you wanted, but also a philosophical conversation about human nature and the state of the world.

    Eventually he retired (I hope, not died) and a Pakistani Muslim was there instead. But he was the same sort of man. You got a leisurely conversation about life, the universe and everything. I wondered if they had met somewhere, at an auction perhaps, and hit it off, and the old man had decided here was someone he could happily sell the shop to.

    1. I am happy as this Trieste shop is protected as a historical site, I saw a book about historical shops in Antwerp once and I still remember all those pictures.I hope your London shop is protected, too. Then, you can not protect people, but in great places people feel great!
