What Cheer? began selling antiques, vintage + vinyl records in 1998. We’ve
recently closed our retail shop, but are still at it, selling online and at events we
organize called Rock + Roll Yard Sales held in RI and the Boston area.
What Cheer? began back in 1998 with a booth at the legendary and now-defunct This + That Shop on Wickenden Street, and then we opened up as a shop in 1999 at our old location on S. Angell Street in Wayland Square, where we remained for 12 1/2 Years until losing our lease. In June of 2012 we moved just down the street to the corner of Angell + Thayer Streets, until getting squeezed out by a greedy visionless landlord in 2017.
