Business of the Month - Makari Japanese Antiques and Fine Art
GVSHP has launched our new "Business of the Month" program. Each month, a local, independent business is featured on GVSHP's website and blog Off the Grid, and shared via our electronic newsletter, showcasing one of the Village, East Village, or NoHo's great and unique retail or commercial treasures.
Meet this month's "Business of the Month" -- Makari. Behind an understated storefront on busy Third Avenue near 14th Street lies a charming oasis of beautiful things. Makari Japanese Antiques and Fine Art provides an incense-scented tour of Japanese craft, from ceramics that are hundreds of years old, to contemporary pottery, textiles, sculptures and artworks. Much of the furniture displaying items is for sale, too. While some pieces are pricey, many items are available in the $20-$50 range. Read more here.
Local businesses are the backbone of our neighborhoods, and many find themselves in an increasingly tough, competitive environment of rising rents and proliferating chain stores. GVSHP is committed to highlighting and celebrating those businesses that help keep our neighborhoods unique and special, and provide a service, atmosphere, or specialty that can't be found anywhere else.
We're asking you, the public, to nominate your favorite businesses for consideration for our "Business of the Month." Each selected business will be profiled, and its story shared via social and electronic media. To nominate a business just fill in a very brief form here.
