Berkshire Emporium & Antiques started as a different name in a different location in 2004. It originally began as a small store for just local crafters on historic Eagle Street. Within a couple of years more space was needed and the opportunity to locate on Main Street was the beginning of major changes.
Over the next few years the store took over the commercial spaces to the left and right, and another in the back. Each expansion added thousands of square footage and rooms for more products.
Much of the new space was filled with a vast array of affordable, quality antiques and vintage merchandise.
We still have handmade items from over 100 crafters and artists. Many of the products in the gift section are locally and regionally made, and the majority of all new merchandise is domestically produced.
Empire Cafe joined our space in 2017, and expanded the cafe's menu to include paninis and local hard ice cream from SoCo Creamery.
What's coming in the future? What else... more expansions. We have more space to grow into.
Today owner Keith Bona partners with several people who help fill the rooms in this unique and wonderful store within the historic Empire Building. The store is fortunate to be surrounded by other quality retailers, galleries, and restaurants, and walking distance from MASS MoCA and Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts.

A little bit about Berkshire Emporium
When possible the original architectural amenities of the 1930s building has been preserved.
This is what a room looks like before we start.
This is a room after we are done with it.
Over 18,000 sq ft and growing! More retail space coming soon
It's no wonder why customers get separated from their spouses, family, or friends when they start browsing in our store.
Two floors and multiple rooms creates a labyrinth of corners, twist and turns, all filled with a variety of old and new.
We believe this was all one large retail space in the 1930s. By the 1950s the spaces were divided and made into smaller shops. We've brought them back together, and may have added even more with the additional space we took over on Holden Street.
The blue areas on the floor plan are opportunities for us to add more retail space. It's a matter of time before you will be able to walk through them.
