Posted

What it is:

This 20,000-square-foot facility houses 200 antique dealers with a broad range of items, including furniture, jewelry and watches, pop-culture collectibles, tableware, oddities, and other relics of the past.

 

Where to find it:

Located right off Exit 29 of I-95 Northbound, just after the Pawtucket “S” curves, you can’t miss the big “ANTIQUES” right above the building’s entrance.

 

What makes it a Rhody Gem?

From extravagant rattan chairs and taxidermy creatures to colorful Fiestaware and collectible coins, the RI Antiques Mall is both a gem in itself and a place for uncovering them. It’s easy to get lost traipsing through recent decades as you meander from booth to booth. Antiquers hunting down a specific genre of item or those just looking for that attention-grabbing furnishing for their home will have luck here – the store boasts a record of being one of New England’s highest-volume sources for antiques for the past 15 years. “Over that time it’s become not only a favorite place to shop but also a social hub for countless like-minded collectors where numerous lifelong relationships and even several marriages have formed,” explains RIAM owner Scott Davis. “If you’ve got the collecting bug, you belong here!”
