Dating from 1905, Philanthia, which translates as the love of flowers, is a more then just a floral store; it is a window into the land of the ferries.  Decorated with original Art Nouevau murals and carved moldings, Philanthia seems pulled directly out of a fantasy tale.  Just peer into the small  iron gazebo in the center where all the fresh flowers are displayed,

Philanthia represents a long tradition in travel.  It is why you go to visit other cities and cultures in the first place.  We do not travel to Europe to shop at Benetton or any of the other factory outlets that dot our world now.  We search out the unique, the keen, the thoughts on life that emerge from years and years of natural contemplation.  We travel for places like Philanthia!

Be sure to look in the back room,  where you will find  hyper-realistic silk flowers,  gardening accesories, candles and vases in all sizes, shapes and colours.  All over  the shop, you will discover fairies.  Spirits hidden in flowers , sprites sitting on shelves, pixies camouflaged on a mirror frame……. keep your wits about you – or you may lost beyond the mists in this true wonderland..

    1. I’m not sure .. please contact them.
      They are among a dying breed of specialty shops that, unfortunately, I do not think will last in the coming decades.
