The Fly By Night Story


Fly By Night was founded on the streets of Amherst, Massachusetts in 1988 with a sidewalk vending permit and a VW Bus.  We quickly became grounded in downtown Northampton and by 1992 we had moved into our current location on 21 State Street—right around the corner from Main Street and the Academy of Music.  Starting from a small, blue storefront in a much larger building, we kept growing, broadening our offering and slowly expanding into the whole building.


Moving on up



In 2002 we outgrew our storage space and built a modern, 20,000 square foot warehouse 3 miles up the road in neighboring Easthampton. Five years later we completed a major expansion of our retail space, building our main showroom on what was once the Child's Building lot next door, giving us five times the showroom space and allowing us to showcase many new product lines and styles.


We've still got it


Little did we suspect that over thirty years after our humble beginnings we would have grown from a small futon shop to Western Massachusetts' largest independent furniture store.  But while we may have grown bigger over the years, we haven't changed our ethics or compromised our quality.  We are constantly educating ourselves and searching for the best and newest products on the market and sharing what we learn with our customers.  We strive to support our community and our industry and to treat people in a helpful and respectful manner. 


If you've shopped with us before, we thank you for your business and support over the years. 

If you haven't, come experience what separates Fly By Night from other furniture stores and brings people back over and over again!
