Melet Mercantile represents its owner Bob Melet's life’s work as a traveler and collector of vintage and antiques. A fourth generation vendor of fashion, Melet Mercantile was founded in 2003 as a place where creatives alike could find something rare and unique in a private environment. The Melet Mercantile showroom serves as a constant rotating installation of inspiration and a special place within the creative community.
At age twenty one, I opened my first antique shop and art gallery. Five years later I went to work for Ralph Lauren as the head of vintage buying for the newly launched Double RL label. After 10 amazing years, I set out to create something new.
Melet Mercantile was founded in 2003 on the notion that New York City needed a resource where designers, art directors, editors, stylists or anyone in search of something different and inspiring could discover the most rare and unique things in the world -- simply by picking up the phone and heading downtown.
Thirteen successful years later we have grown and evolved to include a seasonal outpost on Montauk, NY as well as a creative services studio and art gallery to support the diverse needs of our clients.
Thank you for your time and we look forward to working with you.
Sincerely, Bob Melet
