Fun store with so much to look at! One room leads to another which leads to another. I was amazed at the sheer amount of merchandise. You'll find bright textiles and rugs twice as whimsical for half the price of larger carpet stores. There is...More

Music for the Eyes is music if Middle Eastern carpets, jewelry and household decor items wind your clock. They have very interesting chairs carved from large wooden stumps. Worth a few minutes.

A truly amazing store! I was stunned with how many unique items they had. I learned, the couple who owns the store, travel around the world themselves finding these authentic items, otherwise unattainable! The prices were fantastic. I guess since they travel themselves to obtain...More

A wonderful shop with a range of items from affordable bangles to authentic collectible carpets. Clearly brought together by an insider that knows their stuff. Always new stock that intrigues and inspires.

A lot of unusual items from the Far and Middle East. This could be a museum as you will see things you have never seen before. Like bells for a camel! Who knew we needed that?!

Questions & Answers

I have been wanting to visit your shop for 20 years. I have a collection of objects I have picked up in my travels, ie: Egypt, Middle East, Turkey. My birthday was last weekend and I traveled over two hundred miles to celebrate with purchasing something from the shop. When I walked in there were no customers @ the counter. A woman was re-organizing carpets. I asked about the shop. She basically ignored me. She went up to the counter to take care of some purchases from another customer. I wandered around and found a vintage Uzbek Ikat caftan on the top floor. I had been looking for one for many years. It was just what I wanted. I didn't want to take it down the stairs to the counter because of the signs stating they were vintage. I also want to ask questions before I made the purchase. May I also state I am disabled and use a stick for stability. I was totally ignored. The woman said she would be with me after "making a phone call to a friend". I had already been in the shop for 3/4 of an hour. I had been will to spend whatever it took to purchased a caftan in fairly good condition. What a rude saleswoman. Just because I was dressed in casual clothes, doesn't mean I don't have money. A real disappointment after waiting so many years, and cannot travel abroad due to my health. NO WAY TO RUN A BUSINESS. They might have nice, interesting items for sale. But, who wants to be ignored!

That was a very bad experience. I have to wonder who the assistant was. I would encourage you to share your experience with the owner of the shop. The whole purpose of having an establishment like that especially, is to... More
