Black Rock Galleries also houses an antique and consignment showroom, Black Rock Interiors, in Black Rock, CT featuring 53,000 sq ft of furniture, quality antiques, fine art, unusual props and decorative arts. We are open to the public Tuesday through Saturday.

After almost 20 years in the antiques, auction, and consignment arena, Grant Panarese and Christie Spooner have combined their talents to create a one-stop enterprise based upon knowledge, honesty, and integrity. What began as the three-person operation in 2010 as Bridgeport Salvage Company in the Mill Hill section of Bridgeport quickly bloomed into a unique business offering a luxury consignment showroom, full auction and estate sale services, and expert appraisals. By 2012, business growth pushed them to a new facility with over 53,000 square feet of showroom space and a new moniker, Black Rock Galleries. This success has helped BRG expand into other locations including BRG-Greenwich, BRG-Boston and in 2019 BRG-Raleigh.

The business continues to grow exponentially under the guidance of its founders and the wonderful support of their clients and customers. Black Rock Galleries headquarters is located at 1720 Fairfield Avenue, with easy access from I-95 (exit 25). Check the hours here.
