 is closing our doors.
We are sad to announce that Anastasia's Accessories sustained significant damage from Hurricane Sandy.
While we managed to save most of our merchandise, our losses were great. Our front door, some inventory, our counter, cabinets, flooring, supplies, furniture, and fixtures were all destroyed or damaged.
Having only rebuilt a year ago from flooding as a result of Hurricane Irene, this time we have decided not to rebuild.

We have had the extreme pleasure of helping you and your friends and family shop for many beautiful items over 24 years and we are offering you one last chance to do so.
We are open for business for just a few weeks to liquidate our inventory and display items. Please visit the store, make your final purchases, talk over old times and help us to celebrate 24 amazing years!
Hope to see you all!
Anastasia and Beth
Anastasia's Accessories
Hours: M-F 11-8, Sat 10-6, Sun 12-5
All sales will be final and cash and carry only.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
