Founded in 2007 and located in Pawtucket, RI, the home of the American Industrial Revolution… We’re your best source for everything from primitives to modernism.
Way back in 1983, RIAM owners Rae and Scott Davis met and went antique shopping on their first date. Their new experience together became a mutual obsession that continues to this day. It didn’t take long until the couple started selling antiques to “support their habit”. Having sold antiques at over a dozen antique malls and shopping scores more over the years, the duo came to understand what made antiques malls good (and bad) and they eventually set out to create the best mall of its kind.
Finally in 2007, they purchased the perfect building, conveniently located right on I-95 in Rhode Island at the Massachusetts border, and they did extensive modifications to make it the antiques “Mecca” it is today. They then set strict standards to assure the best mix of dealers and product offerings. Not too flea-markety… not to hoity-toity. A just-right feeling, comfortable, safe and family friendly environment where everyone can find a treasure whether they have $10 or $10,000 to spend.
Today, RIAM sets the standard for antiques malls throughout New England and beyond, but we’re not resting on our laurels. As the industry continues to evolve, you can count on us to maintain our reputation for being the Best in Rhode Island… a claim we can back up as the winner of all 3 state and local reader polls.
