Warren and Derrick Clark, co-founders of Domaci, a home furnishings retailer based in the Lehigh Valley, are creating a new retail concept, Belleville Market, a multi-merchant shopping and entertainment space in downtown Easton.
The space will be replacing the Easton Antique Emporium on 20 S. 3rd St.
The concept is inspired by the Paris neighborhood of the same name and will offer a shopping experience modeled after a European street market and be home to a juried collection of independently owned, creative-based, small businesses.
The space will also become the new permanent landing space for the Domaci storefront.
“We’re excited to continue a business relationship with many of the existing merchants from the Easton Antique Emporium, while at the same time welcoming new entrepreneurs with a unique vision and passion for what they do”, said Warren Clark. “Many of our merchants already operate successful online shops, participate in seasonal festivals or even wholesale their merchandise to other retailers, but benefit additionally from having a more permanent ‘brick and mortar’ location.”
Shops that will be joining Domaci as new merchants in Belleville Market include: Cottage and Bloom, offering home decor and personal items inspired by the garden and all things vintage, farmhouse, and industrial design; Steel City Plant Co., an urban plant shop specializing in pet-friendly offerings and unique plant accessories; Seasons Olive Oil & Vinegar Taproom, a family owned company that produces and imports the freshest extra virgin olive oil and vinegar and Rascal Salvage Vintage, a New Jersey-based vintage shop featuring a hand-picked collection of nostalgic collectibles.
Belleville Market will also offer opportunities for non-permanent merchant pop-ups, a space for workshops, small-scale events and live music and entertainment.
“We’re excited to bring a bit of the fun and enjoyment that so many of our guests experienced at our Bethlehem shops to Easton,” said Derrick Clark. “This location offers a perfect spot for musicians to perform on select dates while our guests browse and shop. We’ll be bringing back our ever-popular tradition of passing out complimentary beer and wine to our guests as well. We want everyone to feel welcome and to stay awhile.”
The Easton Antique Emporium remains open for business while the transition to Belleville Market takes place. The new market is expected to open in late summer 2023.
