Comics, antiques shop reopens on Fisher Street

SALISBURY — A comic book and antique shop has reopened downtown in the blossoming block of 100 West Fisher St.
Collectivity has joined One-O-Nine Gallery, Spring Robin and the future Go Burrito restaurant in the block facing the historic mural.
Owned by Robert Wall, Collectivity opened Thursday at 111 W. Fisher St., previously occupied by Fisher Street Interiors. Missie Alcorn’s interior design business has moved into Caniche, where she is also part owner.
Wall ran Collectivity from 1992 to 2001 in Salisbury and Kannapolis. He said he decided to reopen the shop.
“It just seemed like the economy is doing better, and I had so much inventory,” Wall said.
The shop originally opened on East Fisher Street where Benchwarmers is located. It moved across the street from the Salisbury Post where Sweet Meadow stands, then moved to Kannapolis before closing for more than a decade.
The shop carries comics distributed by Diamond Comics, including those published by DC, Marvel and other companies. Comics come in every Wednesday, and Wall offers a subscription with a 10 percent discount on new books.
Collectivity also sells Italian silver jewelry and custom jewelry created by Patricia Brown of Salisbury, as well as antiques from Wall’s personal collection.
Through the rest of the month, the shop will sell all back-issues for 15 percent off, including Silver Age and current books.
The shop will be open from 1 to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. For more information, call 704-637-2578 or email collectivity@att.net. Contact reporter Emily Ford at 704-797-4264.
