About
Scrivimi is a stationery store in the heart of Florence, near the famous San Lorenzo Street market. Inside the shop you feel as if time has stood still ever since one wrote with feather quills on handmade Paper. You will find yourself surrounded by traditional Italian artisan work such as fine bookbinding products. Furthermore, there is a big selection of writing paper and cards, quills and ink in every color of the rainbow and a selection of seals and wax.

If you go to Florence you must stop in at Scrivimi. Scrivimi means, write to me! How appropriate! As a person who loves to write to my friends and to people in general, I find so many beautiful things in this shop! Everything in it enhances the writing experience. I have quite a collection of beautiful stationary items which range from paper to writing sets to beautifully bound leather journals and handmade paper. I have a huge collection of wax seals that all my friends love! It makes them feel special when they receive one of my beautiful scrivimi cards with a seal on the back of the envelope! Writing that noble art! The store has many other lovely Florentine items. I have been shopping at Scrivimi for the last five years! It is my go to shop whenever I stay in Florence. The owners Sheena and Ebi are simply lovely! The shop has so many wonderful souvenirs! Your friends and family will thank you! I invite you to stop in at Scrivimi! You won't be sorry! Linda Grossi

You need to come to this shop if you’re in Florence. The owner is hands down the nicest business owner I’ve ever met, going above and beyond good service. The perfectly curated and interesting objects in the store also make shopping there almost a museum like experience. No pressure if you want to browse for a long time and unlike the large name-brand chain paper shops, this one is independently owned. Prices are also very, very reasonable. Highly recommended!

A little shop between the cathedral and the central market... a place to visit for the gifts, far from the usual souvenirs you can find everywhere else. A place that you make feel like a children who want to travel all other the world !!!

I love making paper lanterns and looking around in Florence I found this little shop in Piazza del Mercato Centrale that sells the most beautiful paper designs. If you ever want a souvenir from Florence this is also the place to go. And it's always a plus when the owners welcome you so warmly. I highly recommend Scrivimi!!

This is a local gem! I visited here as a study abroad student and Eby—the owner—treated me very kindly. He allowed me to practice Italian even though he's proficient in English. I only wanted a couple cards but ended up buying a lovely wax seal too. The shop is full of stationary treasures and I would've bought more if I had more room in my luggage.

What a gem! Scrivimi is a delightful store filled with exquisite paper products, seals and calligraphy supplies. It’s also hard to resist the siren call of the leather-bound notebooks with handmade paper.

The gentleman in the store was friendly and helpful and didn’t seem to mind my basic (and ungrammatical I’m sure) Italian. My daughter and I left with a stash of notebooks and seals which will bring back fond memories of our visit.

Love the immediately available monogram stamps (for wax or ink ) and the beautiful stationery in this tiny shop. Complementary gift wrap a bonus
