Regular trading hours are 10 - 6 Monday to Friday and 10 - 5 on Saturdays
l'uccello has had a huge year, mostly highs and the odd low so despite being a little weary we are very happy with how our little shop has grown.
None of this would be possible without the support and encouragement we receive daily from our gorgeous customers, we are so lucky to be surrounded every day by such an inspiring and creative group of people. So thank you all so much for such a great year, have a very Happy Holidays, we wish you all a lovely time with family and friends.
