Nusraty Afgan Imports

Afghan native Abdul Khaliq Nusraty, who has been in the antiques business for 55 years, has relocated his mini warehouse shop, which was previously in Chelsea. Vintage stock includes housewares ($100–$5,000) and jewelry ($5–$5,000) imported from countries such as Afghanistan, Egypt and Morocco. Walk through a sea of cotton and silk hand-embroidered wall hangings ($100–$3,000) suspended from the ceiling, and colorful rugs ($100–$5,000) laid out on the floor. A cluster of glass shelves holds one-of-a-kind jewels, including both new ($50) and vintage ($200–$3,500) African beaded necklaces, and gold engraved bracelets ($5–$5,000) that passed through generations of Afghan families. If you’re in the market for unique decor, scoop up wooden chairs ($2,800 each) with colorful beading from Nigeria, hand-painted and handwritten Bibles ($50,000), Tibetan and Nepalese silk paintings ($100–$6,500), and clay Buddha statues ($50–$6,500).
