Who better to answer customer questions and provide top notch customer service than the experts who own individual businesses (booths) within the mall?

ABOUT OUR DEALERS
Our family of dealers range from professionals who make their living selling items, to those who resell as a hobby, to serious craftsmen who create works of art, to people cleaning out as they downsize their living space, to those responsible for liquidating an estate, etc. Some rent space for the long-term, some rent for a few years, and some rent for a few months.
They sell antiques, vintage, used, and new items. They refurbish, restore, clean, paint, repurpose, and recycle items from many eras. They create new craft items. Some buy new merchandise to resell.
It is a truly eclectic mix of inventory.
ABOUT OUR OWNERS
Tom and Barb Berges are the founders of Antiques & Uniques, LLC and on the first day of 2023 they sold A&U to their son Rob.
The store is modeled after the original concept of Homer Marple, developed in Hilton, New York (the Berges’ old hometown) in the 1980’s. Tom and Barb brought this concept to Ohio in 2003 when they opened their first retail store with other business partners. That business grew and thrived over the 11 years that they were there.
In April 2015, they brought this antique mall concept farther west to Wickliffe and opened Antiques & Uniques. The last empty booth was rented on opening day and a waiting list was started. Forty of the original dealers are still active at A&U. Many have expanded into more or larger spaces over time. The wide variety of items for sale, the clean, bright surroundings, and the friendly, helpful atmosphere keep shoppers coming back.
Through the years, A&U has won many reader’s choice awards, and we’ve all had a great time doing it! Thank you!
