One Mercantile is a small home goods & gift shop focusing on small production, fair trade, and vintage reproduction items located in the historic and well-known downtown of Great Barrington, Massachusetts, in the heart of the Berkshires.
Owners Abby and Andy opened One Mercantile in 2013. Their shared interest in all things vintage lead them to travels around New England to antique, vintage and second-hand stores alike to find exceptional and remarkable goods. With a keen eye for well made and high quality items, and a desire to share their love of well crafted goods, the couple began to consider opening a retail store. They began investigating small production and fair-trade companies that were producing new products that matched their aesthetics and sensibilities.
A large space, in much need of a face lift, was located in their hometown of Great Barrington. The grand room had been a community second hand store for 25 years whose interior still sported the late 1960’s wallpaper and faux wood paneling of it’s last renovation. Abby and Andy set to work uncovering and revealing the high beamed ceilings and exposing the beautiful original brick walls, creating a raw but refined vintage industrial interior to house their goods.
One Mercantile is a true small business run daily by Abby, Andy, and Elizabeth, who has been with the shop since the very beginning. Visit them in the shop at 8 Castle Street, in downtown Great Barrington, and be sure to follow them on social media for the most up to date news on what's going on at One Mercantile!
