Bob Melet


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.
