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 owners of Antiques & Uniques, LLC and have been residents of Northeast Ohio since 2005.
The store is modeled after the original concept of Homer Marple, developed in Hilton, New York (their old hometown) in the 1980’s. They brought this concept to Ohio in 2003 when they opened a store in Painesville with other business partners. That business grew and thrived over the last 11 years, drawing customers from several states and Canada.
Tom was responsible for at least 80% of the management there until they left the business in March of 2014. At that time it was fully rented with a waiting list of over 100 potential vendors. Sales increased each year and business was thriving as people shopped for good quality, previously owned items.
Now they are bringing this antique mall concept farther west to Wickliffe!
