A beautiful day in Florence!

The German Christmas market has opened in Piazza Santa Croce. The market happens every year in December. The market is filled with food and merchandise. My favorite at the market is the slow roasted pork and mulled wine.

New lasting pincers from Minke, such a wonderful tool, also very important in the shoemaking process. Minke has a great selection of shoemaking tools, some of which can be very difficult to find, even in Italy.
