“Pleasant Gift Shop”
Reviewed April 21, 2012

I went into the Zakir Gallery each one of four days before I made my purchase. There was no pressure. I enjoyed looking at the hand made items in a well-lit shop. Unusual jewelry and beautiful silk things. I really enjoyed the variety. The shop owners were terrific. I kept promising I would come back and buy (I'm sure many people promise...) , so everyday I'd get a friendly greeting. I felt they were honest.The Tashkonak Hotel sent me there. It turned out to be the place that I bought nearly all my goods.
