Kamelot Auctions

Joe Holahan and Jeff Kamal of Kamelot Auctions have founded an antiques center that offers dealers the chance to house booths and showrooms in New York’s unofficial sixth borough, Philadelphia, reports Business of Home.

“What’s happening in our industry is that good locations used to get traffic, but that’s just not true anymore,” Holahan tells Business of Home. “I’ve talked to so many dealers who have nice locations and it doesn’t get them enough traffic. … I think the future of antiques retail is critical mass—of the people who are willing to look at something; 100,000 square feet gets their attention.” 

Besides Kamelot Auctions, Holahan and Kamal's Showrooms at 2220 (2220 E. Allegheny Avenue, Philadelphia) has already signed it first lease with Robert Aibel, who runs Moderne Gallery in Philadelphia, according to Business of Home.
