Works Gallery on the Upper East Side is exactly what small business is in New York, a jewel of a store hidden in plain sight that represents some of the top names in designer jewelry and art. The store has been in the same location for over 35 years and yet every week someone will come in a say, "I didn't know this store was here."
Works Gallery is the kind of beloved neighborhood store that regulars depend on for something special—gifts, touches for home, top jewelry designers, and more. The store carries a wide variety of jewelry in gold and silver, art glass, home decor, wall hangings, paintings, and colorful gemstone handcrafted pieces. Here you will find one-of-a-kind pieces as well as the latest in the full line of designers from the current season.
For 35 years owner Frank Pereira and his team have been curating the store's collections and not tooting their own horn, but this year has been different, so Works Gallery wants to remind neighbors to shop local, and support small businesses in the community so those businesses can continue to STAY local. The store will be holding a few evenings of special shopping for seniors and of course will offer gift wrapping and shipping. 1250 Madison Ave., 212-996-0300, worksgallery.com
