Have visited every time I travel to CT. It offers the best selection of tabletop, jewelry, home decor, and accessories I've found. They are very good at shipping around the world, and respond positively whenever a question arises.

A great place to find that beautiful object you can’t live with out. It is a well curated shop filled with African art. I was here in 2007 and 2017 is even better. I think this is a must do spot.
