A message from the president

Somerville Center Antiques – Open now for over twenty years!

On February 4th, 1994 Somerville Center Antiques opened its doors with ten dealers, in its first center located at 17 Division Street in Somerville. In 20 years, that ten dealers grew to over 100 multi-dealer shoplets in multiple centers with over half a dozen specialty sections and is New Jersey’s largest antiques complex. Each center is very different, each specializing in a distinctive era and style of antiques and collectibles.

It’s not just treasure hunters who make their way to Somerville Center Antiques to explore the multiple shops filled with unique items. The center is also the destination of choice for those in search of movie props, New York City editors, stylists, decorators and designers. Over the last several years, each of the centers has contributed to making the complex a favorite for editors of Martha Stewart’s many wonderful publications. The center has also provided many props for over 100 sets in recent productions at local theaters as well as movies including “Autumn in New York”, starring Richard Gere; “Riding in Cars with Boys”, starring Drew Barrymore; and the critically acclaimed “Far From Heaven” starring Dennis Quaid.

As Somerville Center Antiques makes its way through the next twenty years, its goals and focuses remain on customer service and supplying the best value to our buyers. Whether you are furnishing your home or apartment, looking for a unique gift, or adding to your antiques collection, you are likely to find what you need.  Come visit and enjoy downtown Somerville, with its antique shops, specialty stores and over 50 restaurants.
