This boutique has amazing African pieces - jewelry, masks, accent pieces, art and more - all authentic and in many different price ranges. Fun if you're not even interested in buying.

We were walking along Prospect and saw a giraffe figurine in a store window that caught our attention since I love giraffes. This place has lots of interesting items. The owners were so inviting, knowledgeable and friendly.

I remember that giraffe figurine we had in our window, as it was part of our Christmas/Holiday window display. We always try to carry unusual depictions of various animals like that. Thanks so much for taking the time to place this positive review.
