Antique and design store opens in Mooresville

A Mooresville mill has been repurposed into a new store, Main St. Antiques and Design Gallery.

Michael Bay restored what had been the Burlington Industries mill. The building now serves as home to vendors selling antiques, jewelry and other vintage goods.

Here's what the company has to say about the new antique mall.

"The structure's beautiful wood ceiling beams and brick walls provide a memorable setting for a wide range of antiques, collectibles and home decor items. 

Main St. Antiques is an antiques mall featuring booths from local vendors whose merchandise changes regularly, so there will always be different pieces to see. Vendor Judith McCubbin, who has bought and sold antiques for two decades, includes painted and cottage-style furniture, vintage chairs, antique night tables, and "shabby chic" items in her booth. Other vendors offer jewelry, antique and artistic clothing, glass, and unusual home accent pieces. "We want Main St. Antiques to be a really fun place to shop," McCubbin says.

Hours are 10 am - 6 pm Monday through Saturday, and 1 - 5 pm Sunday. Main St. Antiques is located next to its sister store, Merinos Home Furnishings, giving shoppers the opportunity to browse through hundreds of thousands of square feet of furnishings on the same visit.

Interested in selling antiques as much as buying them? Main St. Antiques has booth space available for sellers of antiques, collectibles, jewelry and other items. Artists can rent space to display and sell their works. Booth space starts at $72 per month, and booths may be rented month to month. Main St. Antiques can also provide staff to assist shoppers with their purchases from your booth when you can't be there. For details, call
704-746-3636 or email info@mainantiques.com."
