Owing to our success as the highest volume antiques mall in New England, it should come as no surprise that our shop has remained fully leased since our opening day back in 2007. With that said, we do have booth turnover from time to time as dealers move away, retire, or run out of merchandise. If you think you’ve got what it takes to meet our standards, submit an application and let’s find a spot for you.
Over 200 different spaces
There's a spot that's right for everyone
We have many dozens of lockable cases of various sizes – most lighted. Some are in rows while some are incorporated into larger booths. You can configure shelves however you like, and in general you’ll always have use of the space on top of the case as well.
Our most popular configuration – there are numerous sizes and set-ups. All have 4’ high surrounds on 3 sides to isolate your space from others while providing some wall space for shelves or artwork. You may modify the space to suit your needs provided you comply with store policies. All stalls have access to electric power.
On the perimeter walls of both floors we offer full-height booths of various sizes. Some feature slat-wall dividers while others have partitions made of rough-hewn barn board or pegboard. Some feature special gallery lighting while others have electrified structural members on the ceiling for hanging heavy objects. You may modify the space to suit your needs provided you comply with store policies. All booths have access to electric power.
For those who specialize in furniture or other large pieces we offer several sizes of open floor space without any walls. Renters of these spaces may install temporary partitions, free-standing shelving units, lighting, showcases, etc., provided they are in compliance with store policies.
We offer (2) fully isolated showrooms for those who require a “shop within a shop”. These rooms have attractive fully finished interiors with special wall surfaces for hanging artwork. They also include gallery-grade fully adjustable lighting, dedicated security cameras, upgraded sound systems, and a host of other features. All sales made in these galleries are still transacted through the store’s check-out system unless other special arrangements have been made.
General Terms for All Spaces:
Month to month with a (1) month termination notice required. Galleries may require longer leases.
Every sales in every space is subject to a 5% commission. Private transactions on the sales floor or “parking lot deals” that circumvent this commission are strictly forbidden
The store will provide sales floor staffing, transact all sales, collect and pay sales tax, package, and provide a full accounting of sales and commissions for your accountant. All overhead including utilities, maintenance, surveillance, most advertising, etc. is included. What a deal!
Each year we run special high profile advertising to promote our Black Friday and Dealer Day sale events. All RIAM dealers are required to pay an equal share of the cost of this advertising. Typically that amounts to a per-space assessment of $15 to $25. This advertising has repeatedly proven to be an extremely wise investment at remarkably modest cost.
You will be provided with an up-to-date list of store policies upon signing of a rent agreement. Compliance with these policies is a condition of continued occupancy.
