Harlem Flo flower shop (original) was one of the new businesses to open years ago on Frederick Douglass Boulevard’s restaurant row. Now they are expanded in to a multi purpose boutique. More and more FDB is becoming retail row as well as restaurant row.
With Harlem Flo combining both of their locations into one large expanded and renovated space, they are able to offer many different consumer needs.
The other day I stopped in for a blank card (my personal favorites are by local artist AFineLyne Lynn Lieberman), and walked out with a bag of gifts and a house plant. They have great candles, books and art just to name a few. If you are going to a dinner party, a housewarming or have a special date, and need a gift they have a large selection of appropriate items including the traditional long stem roses. As their window conveys, Garden ∙ Art ∙ Gifts.
See their website Harlem Flo Boutique.
For those of you who have outdoor space or just want summer flowers in your apartment window, one of the owners Louis Gagliano was telling me they will have flats of summer flowers in front of their shop from spring to fall. They already have some early spring flowers available. They have an expansive collection of cut flowers and healthy indoor orchids, cactus and a variety of house plants.
The combining of the two locations last summer was a smart move. If you haven’t visited Harlem Flo yet stop in and pay them a visit. Even if you do not need anything you will probably end up buying something. Adjacent with Harlem Flo Boutique is the corner Coventry Garden. This will look great in the summertime.

HarlemGuy and Harlemista spent a few hours at Harlem Pop-Up ‘Holiday Bazaar’ today. We loved the huge Christmas tree out front, the cavernous interior space, the aura creativity that permeated the space, and the passion of the people representing the products and services on display. Highlights included learning about the new community bank Spring Bank, learning about artist Garry Grant, meeting the force behind artist AFineLyne and her great cards and paintings, catching up with the founder of Harlem Tavern and the folks from Lido, meeting Ebony of mikomyco and seeing their beautiful scarves in person, seeing the amazing artwork in the form of cards by Willie Mitchell, and the wonderful wares from bebenoir.
We love these Harlem Pop-Up events and look forward to the next one. Hoping they continue at least once a month. If you missed the first one check out our post here; Harlem Pop-Up ‘Green Market.’

Last year, I purchased Harlem-themed notecards made by a local artist, who lives and works in Harlem, as holiday gifts for family and friends. I plan on sticking with that same approach this year since I love all things Harlem and I want to continue sharing that passion. If you are interested in buying gifts made in Harlem, then stop by Casa Frela this weekend for their Made in Harlem Festival. The weekend festival will feature 23 local artisans who will offer for purchase a wide range of unique and interesting holiday items. The festival will be held on Saturday, December 4th, 2010 and Sunday, December 5th, 2010, from 10AM to 7PM both days. Admission is FREE.
