Richard Cupp(right) is the owner of Main Street Antiques and is married to Debra with two sons, Justin and Joel. Joel works with dad at Main Street Antiques and is learning the ropes of the antique business.

Richard began dabbling with antiques and collectibles in 1980 by going to yard sales on weekends to find "goodies" to sell to "stupid" dealers. Flea marketing and shows followed until 1988. In 1988, Richard opened his first store front on Granby Street in Norfolk, VA. In 1994 Richard moved the store front to High Street in Portsmouth, VA. Then in 1996, Richard closed the store front to do the antiques show circuits which he continued until 2003. At that time Yvonne Dodson hired Richard as the manager of Main Street Antiques Mall. In June 2004, Richard became the owner. In the twenty five years that Richard Cupp has been in the antique business, he has acquired a vast knowledge of antiques in general and has sold in excess of 3 million dollars worth of antiques.

And now the circle comes complete because now he is the "stupid" antiques dealer buying "goodies" from the new kids on the block!
