About

Rachel Gurley was born and raised in the Antiques Business. "My family is in the business. My mother and father, David and Nan Gurley were amazing dealers, and when I was 5 or so, they began promoting antique shows. Dealers from all over became my extended family" says Gurley. 

Her late mother, Nan Gurley, was famous in the business. Her brother Josh, an auctioneer, owns and operates Gurley Auction Company in Parsonsfield, Maine. Rachel opened the Gurley Antiques Gallery originally in Yarmouth, Maine in 2008. In 2011, she met her now husband, Timothy Libby, and moved the business to Dunstan Corner on Route 1 in Scarborough, Maine.

Rachel and Joshua have continued the family business and now promote shows. Be sure to keep an eye on the Calendar for upcoming Shows!  The Deerfield Antique Show in August during Antiques Week in NH is a favorite for those looking for quality Americana and Folkart. Followed by The Cornish Antique Show and Vintage Fair in September, the Cornish Show in Cornish, ME is at the same time as the Cornish Apple Festival and is a local Favorite.  The Boxborough Show Series in Boxborough, MA is a great picker's market! It happens three times a year and features 60 dealers with fresh antiques.  The Scarborough High School Antiques and Vintage Show in Scarborough, ME supports the Local Model UN Club at the High School~ A great way to start the Spring!  The Dover Antiques Flea Market at the Dover Elks Lodge is always the First Wednesday of the Month October through April!

"I went to school as a French major... and graduated with a degree in art history and a minor in French and art from UMaine-Orono. I was a five star pastry chef," Gurley reported, but the entrepreneurial antiques blood ran too strong. "My degree has helped me in the antique business, but my hands-on experience taught me the most. My mom taught me everything from running the business to appreciating the 'little yummies' as she liked to call them." I was watching the shop on our farm by the time I was 10." With a family name to honor, Gurley promised that she will continue to love the Antiques Business like her parents, David and Nan. "I managed Mom's shop for years, and I know all the guys," she declared. "The business has changed, now we have to have something for everyone. Gurley Antiques Gallery has everything form high quality to Fun and Funky."
