Another detached house

This neat little building will be found easily, in the Campo S.Maria del Giglio. It serves as a stationery/ odds and ends shop. They have some great black and white post cards.

This fellow, and his mate guard the entrance to a hotel. They looked decidedly unimpressed with the manner in which they are dressed for the festive season.

The latest postcard arrived today, from Julie, who is from the UK. It was written on the 3 December. Once more, there is no cancellation mark on the envelope, I’ll save the stamps for you, Julie. 🙂

Now, let’s see what I can find in the collection of pissotte.

    Okay are those card racks or have they had to install security measures since I took my picture in October 2008??
    I was just passing at the time…checking to make sure I knew how to get to Musica a Palazzo in the daylight.
    I’ll email you the link to my picture.

    I’ve bought several small gifts at that shop, including a couple for me which I see or use everyday! What fun to see it on your blog.


  7. You found it! The little shop is the base of the campanile for Chiesa S.Maria del Giglio – apparantly started several times and eventually just pulled down to the stump you see today!


  8. That building is soooo cute!

    That shop is the base of the unfinished campanile of the church.
