Harlem Flo Lifestyle Boutique
Harlem Flo floral atelier, florist to the oh-so-fabulous, has a lifestyle boutique located at 2276 Frederick Douglass Boulevard. It features one-of-a-kind pieces produced by local talent. The decor invites a closer look at the vast array of books, gifts, housewares, and, thanks to owners Louis Gagliano & Stefan Handl teaming up with A Gift of Tea’s Jo Johnson, tea.
