Our Antique Store


With more than 40 years of experience DAFA’s Craig Mayor has become a legend in the industry to whom collectors, designers and other dealers from a host of countries turn to find that special piece, to decorate a new home or for an often large scale replenishing of their business inventory. Located in central Fort Lauderdale, Decorative Arts & Fine Antiques offers a suite of impeccable show rooms featuring constantly changing collections of museum quality antiques, decorative objects and original fine art. New inventory comes in every day, and it is not uncommon for some of our clients to be by the door before the opening hour for a ‘first pick’. DAFA is also the result of teamwork. Christopher Mayor is now part of the business which he grew up to know so much about and DAFA has welcomed renowned antiques dealers Alyce and Richard Sandor as well as Lars Hegelund of Frederick Fine Art in the gallery strengthening both our national and international cababilities. Decorative Arts & Fine Antiques, Inc. has over the years grown to be one of the nations leading purveyors of antiques and fine art along the way enjoying an ever expanding circle of clients and friends from all over the world.

Having met Craig Mayor today I was impressed with his expertise and his integrity.
He his both a teacher and a business man.
The antiques business can be open to inaccuracies but its’ obvious that Mr. Mayor knows his offerings well and presents them without pressure. I will be happy to return to his gallery,

The Mayor’s antique gallery is a gem. I find it hard to stay away because a visit is sure to yield a treasure for my home. Everyone is welcoming and informative and you are treated like their top customer whether you are purchasing or not. I cannot emphasize enough the quality of the antiques, it’s very rare these days to see such fine merchandise consistently under one roof. I’ve had several deliveries and the service is first rate too. You definitely owe it to yourself to visit DAFA.

As I live in Canada, the move from my house in Vero Beach was causing me a lot of anxiety. I shouldn’t have worried.
Craig and his team made this move the easiest experience possible. I can’t offer enough accolades about Craig and DAFA.
It’s always such a pleasure to meet truly wonderful people.
Thank you for making my move a happy experience!

Craig Mayor’s shop is a true South Florida “find” with a great inventory. Craig is highly knowledgeable and very personable and has not only guided me in my purchases but has been very helpful with recommendations for restoration, trucking, etc.. No visit to South Florida is complete for me and others with an eye for fine antiques without a stop into Craig’s shop DAFA.
