From all of us here at Persian Gallery New York, including the extended Hakim family and our staff, we would like to wish you all a Happy Easter, a Happy Passover (Chag Sameach!), a Happy Nowruz (Eideh Nowruz Mobarak!), and a very happy Spring Holiday season to all!
This year’s Spring Holidays have had a much different feel to them than those of previous years, in that the main thoughts in everyone’s minds has been about the global pandemic from the COVID-19 Corona Virus outbreak, as opposed to the global celebration of the start of the Spring season, and its observance across different religions, nationalities, and cultural and ethnic groups.
We here at Persian Gallery have also been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, as we operate our business out of our office and showroom in Midtown Manhattan, and Manhattan and the entire New York metro area have been on lock down for the last three weeks as a result of the pandemic.
As such, for the last three weeks, our office and showroom have been closed, and we have been working from home, with reduced staff and ability to connect with our colleagues and clientele.
This closure has coincided with the holiday celebrations for Easter and Passover that would normally cause us to take days off in other years, but in that case has been an unexpected closure of three weeks and counting, with no definite end point in sight.
Despite our prolonged “out of office” situation, we are still sending out shipments for our clients periodically, and our annual Easter and Passover Sale is in full swing across all of our online sales platforms, from our online stores on 1stdibs, Chairish, Etsy, eBay, and Invaluable, to our very own PGNY Outlet right here on PGNY.com.
Our Easter and Passover Sale provides access to significantly discounted prices on hundreds of items across these different sale platforms, from antique Persian carpets to vintage oriental rugs, to period European tapestries to rare textiles, to vintage decorative pillows and other assorted decorative items. These items are all on sale, with free shipping for buyers in the Continental United States. Sale ends Sunday 4/19.
Happy Spring Holidays to you all, and we wish you and yours health and safety in this difficult time. We hope to see you again soon, and look forward to the day when the COVID-19 crisis is nothing but a distant memory. Blessings from our homes to yours!
