My first trip to Florence, and I have found Aladdin’s cave! This shop have every thing to stimulate a Paper Crafter imagination with many decorative papers for wrapping or book binding, a good selections of dip pens for the calligraphy, and not to mention the Toy Theater collections. A great place.

Although we were in Italy two years ago, today I found the Scrivimi business card and decided to look them up. Scrivimi was a small store with very nice and authentic pieces. We found some maps and flower pictures which we are in the process of framing. The service was great and the staff/owner was very knowledgeable on how each item was made. You could tell they took pride at what they were selling. I would go back to visit.

We randomly came across Scrivimi after a trip to the Mercato. After becoming semi-obsessed with the beautiful paper goods at a shop down the street from our hotel, I would drag my husband into every paper shop we walked by. But this shop this shop was a pleasure to browse in thanks to the beautifully curated goods and the kind man (probably the owner) running the place. I found items here that I did not see anywhere else, including a beautiful leather photo album, leather bound journals made by local artists, and original numbered etchings done by local artists. After stopping in several other shops, I had to come back to Scrivmi to buy these items because I knew I would regret it if I left Florence without them. This shop can be highly recommended, especially if you want a paper shop that is well-curated and more authentic than most else you'll find in the tourist areas of Florence, with kind and personalized service.

I walked out of our hotel and two minuted down the street l came across this beautiful gift shop, what drew my attention was the wonderful array of caligraphy pens in the window, my daughter just loves caligraphy, so in l went and found this amazing gift shop, full of exciting gifts that you will not find elsewhere in Florence, great leather items, attractive gift papers, so l settled for a lovely gift box with pens and inks,. The lady serving was so kind in helping me choose, this is a must visit for those special gifts
