Purveyors of the Unusual
Purveyors of the Unusual
Welcome to Istoriya.
Here at Istoriya we strive to preserve the quality and excellence of our customer’s retail experiences - just like walking into all of the elegance and splendor of the first department store in Edwardian England or the personal service of walking into your local haberdashers and having the man behind the counter choose your socks. It’s the quiet laughter of young seamstresses as they try to make the stitches fly by and the feeling of confidence and trust you would instill in your local barber that we strive to provide to our customers. What we mean is that we at Istoriya have a vision to provide small glimpses into the past, to salvage antiques from relative obscurity and provide the preservation and conservation in a sustainable way so future generations can own these exquisitely crafted pieces of the past.
