Florence is known for its beautiful paper. Marbelized, creamy paper adorns notebooks, makes notecards and incites one to abandon oneself to the art of the epistle.
But the paper products in most of the shops I saw in Florence were expensive. I don't tend toward parsimony when it comes to my precious paper products (Moleskines aren't cheap but I don't care!). But there is a limit.
Arti & Mestieri means arts and crafts in Italian.
I love all kinds of cards, and this shop specialized in them. I fell in love with the mini tarot deck and regret not buying it. I did buy a handful of cards, including the one below.
To reach papier arti & mesteieri:
Indirizzo: Piazza Di S. Maria Sopr'arno, 1

Telefono: 055 2343670
I'll just have to go back to get those tarot cards!
