People always ask me "where are your favorite places to shop?"  One of my favorite places is Ankasa, . They just opened a new retail store on Madison Ave. between 87th & 88th streets. They carry mostly high-end  accessories, pillows, lighting and small pieces of furniture.. They have a very glamorous look, their merchandise always intrigues me. Ankasa's pillows always look handmade. They use wonderful textiles, like cashmere and lace, skins and embroidery... Their products would help finish off any room in your house, check them out the next time you are in the Upper East side of Manhattan.. Happy Holidays!!!! Enjoy!!
