When you walk through the doors of our shop, you see a burst of color from the rugs and textiles, as well as colored light from Moroccan lanterns hanging from the ceiling. The building actually used to be a department store, so there are extra sections and cubby-holes. We turned the dressing rooms and closets into little spaces for displaying certain kinds of treasures.
After we returned from Tibet, we set up a special Tibetan section, with books, flags, jewelry and hats.
Don’t miss the little Kyrgyz section with antique bellows, tall reed screens, leather pants and an exquisite scissors holder.
Now that our collection of beads is rapidly expanding, you will find two sections full of colorful unusual beads and pendants.
The jewelry just won’t be contained in any one part of the store. Earrings stands have proliferated, so they are everywhere, even in the store windows. Hats too can be found in many places.
Recently we have started making the upstairs section of the building into an area solely for storage of extra collections of old rugs, textiles, hats and the like. If you like old things, and want to go upstairs, you had better plan an extra hour for your visit.
