I have had the honor of meeting Gelmu Sherpa, owner of the store Tibet on 80th Street in NYC. Gelmu is a kind and lovely person who treats everyone who enters her store with graciousness and charm. I highly recommend this shop for gifts as the choices are many. Just for the atmosphere alone, its worth the visit!
This Tibetan store carries absolutely beautiful Tibetan hats, carpets, bells, incense, prayer wheels, colorful prayer flags, rosaries, and other religious and cultural artifacts from Nepal.
They sell stunning jewelry, Wool Jackets and other winter apparel, bags, belts, and specialize in pure 100% silk scarves and pouches beautifully hand-painted individually. They are available in any color of your choosing! Also their store has a huge variety of singing bowls and tingsha bells.
Be sure to stop in and enjoy the merchandise and the people!
