Established in 1987. John Gregg, with a history of importing ethnic crafts and clothing, and a special interest in textiles, decided to sell his business, Serai Imports and move from New York City to the Catskills.
He had also sold antiques, worked for a textile auction house and designed and produced a landmark exhibit at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. of the People of Pakistan in the 11970safter working for the Ford Foundation in Pakistan.
He has lived in Germany and France, taught in China for a year in the early 1980s, and exported from Central America, Mexico, and Africa as well as India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.
He opened the store while also setting up regularly doing markets and fairs. After a few years, with the popularity of the store well established among second homeowners, tourists and local people, and the commitment of his life partner to assisting with the buying and managing, he gave up the off-site markets. We're still going strong 23 years later!
