I've shopped at Magic Carpet for eons to buy gifts for family and friends...and me, too! I know I can always find something that's fabulous and priced right...and not your run-of-the-mall stuff. Something that's distinctive.
The owners has lots of gorgeous amber jewelry, as well as a very nice selection of Tiffany reproduction lamps, Turkish Kilim rugs, and other home furnishings and items from around the world.
I think the comment on this website about the owner's behavior is off the wall. Her store is jammed-packed with breakable items, glassware, etc. and she protects it from younger kids. And a good sales person WILL follow you around the store...regardless of your color or background. IT'S CALLED SALESMANSHIP. In the millions of times I've shopped in her store, I've never seen any discriminatory behavior...but she will tell you to watch your kids.

I have had nothing but excellent experiences in this shop over the last 10 years or so I've been going there. They carry beautiful jewelry and home decor and the owner is fabulous. (I was shocked to read a negative comment about her in a prior post.) I am a woman of color and she has treated me, and everyone I have ever been in there with, with kindness and respect. If she tells someone to be careful with things, maybe that's because everything in the place is breakable!

I used to like this place, and I still like the things in it. But on my last visit, I became very offended by the service provided by the owner. I'm African-American and I feel that I was treated as though she couldn't trust me and my younger sisters in her store. And I'm not a person to easily say this, but I feel she racially profiles customers. I will never go back again. She watched us closely although others were in the sore, and she repeatedly came to tell us to be careful around the things. Say it once -- that's enough. Say it again and again, and I know that you're watching me. I encourage you to spend your money elsewhere.
