Yesterday I was in Sevenoaks and found a little piece of heaven in the shape of, Johnny’s Little Sister Flower Emporium. This is the prettiest little florist shop I think I’ve ever seen. Johnny’s little sister is own and run by Bella, who from the very first moment of meeting her, you can tell she is a thoroughly good egg. Bella is one of six children from an exceptional talented bunch. One of Bella’s sister’s has a home and interiors shop called Pictorial’s on the other side of the street, which is also stuffed with a gorgeous array woollen cushions, throws and all-sorts of yummy home wares.
Bella has been a florist for many years, but has only had the shop in this location since April. Previously Bella had sold her flowers up in London at the historic Spitalfields market, but I’m so glad she has found a permeant home in Sevenoaks at Johnny’s Little Sisters, Flower Emporium. The shop is stuffed full of vintage finds from France, along with pretty seasonal blooms and a selection of other delectable gifts. If you live around the Sevenoaks area, or even if you don’t please go and support this local business, I promise you wouldn’t be disappointed. I came away with a little selection of blooms, which I photographed to preserve forever.
