Flower lady






I went to soho to drop off some of my friends framed photography at an art gallery in soho.  

I decided to take this time to explore the area.  I found a bead shop and then later a millinery shop.  

I foresee many more trips to the millinery shop, 

they are well stocked and the staff are very very friendly.  

I'm thinking of making some headgear, is anyone interested?
