It is no longer a secret around Colorado that Florence has one of the best, if not the best, antique and collectable shopping districts anywhere. There are over 20 shops that present treasures to entice anyone, we call it ‘recreational shopping’. New visitors are amazed at the quality, size and abundance of merchandise in the stores. Old friends return often as they know new treasures arrive daily. Stores offer old stuff, some new and some with a lot of each. Serious collectors, home decorators, professional browsers or stranded husbands can spend hours perusing the offerings looking for that one ‘rare beauty’.
Florence is also home to several fine art galleries who present the work of many acclaimed artists and craftsmen. Original work in paint, clay, silver, fiber or what ever the artist can find is available. Many artists have their studios in the galleries, or nearby, giving the collector a chance to meet and watch the artists work. Most of the antique stores offer artwork also.
