Kostas Anagnopoulos is a creative in every sense of the word.
Whether he is working to provide award-winning services to clients in the gift, home, jewelry, and personal-accessories industries, or teaching poetry remotely with Creative Growth in San Francisco, Kostas is a master at aesthetics.
After more than 20 years of working closely with visionary merchants and top retailers, Kostas opened Pidgin, a store in Oak Hill, New York, to sell the things that he loves, from antiques and old objects, to a selection of beautifully crafted new items.
