Samantha's Westside Market

About Us

Samantha's opened in 1988, selling home accessories and collectibles.  We've morphed over the years with the changing times, but we've been family owned and operated for 30 years by Paul and Samantha Proctor.  It's a rare day indeed when you are not greeted at the front door by Ms. Samantha, a staple in the New Bern community.  Paul and Samantha's son, Justin, joined the family business after graduating with a bachelor's degree from East Carolina University.


Over the most recent decade, Samantha's became Samantha's Furniture and sold primarily quality, preowned home furnishings. We prided ourselves on offering name brand furniture at a fraction of the original cost. 


Now, in 2018, Samantha's has once again changed with the times to become Samantha's Westside Market.  Because our space is very large, we will still carry some of the same quality, preowned furnishings you've come to expect, but we now rent spaces to other business owners that sell artisan, boutique, and trendy goods.  The result is an amazing contemporary marketplace that was sorely needed in our area and that we think New Bern will love!  Think of us as your one-stop home and gift shop -- there's something for everyone here.


Justin's wife, Sarah, and their ultra sweet one-year-old daughter, Gabriella, have recently begun helping in the family business.  Sarah has a passion for interior design and home trends, attributed primarily to her countless hours of HGTV-watching during her pregnancy and baby Gabriella's first year of life.  Sarah and Samantha are taking the lead roles in organizing the re-vamp of Samantha's as Samantha's Westside Market.  Gabriella is taking the lead role in waving, smiling, and potentially yelling (sweetly) at everyone who walks through the doors.


Justin is also a licensed NC real estate broker and works full-time with the prestigious Coldwell Banker Willis-Smith Company in New Bern, focusing primarily on helping individuals buy and sell residential and commercial real estate.

Justin and Paul travel extensively to procure merchandise for Samantha's, often traveling the East Coast to hand pick quality, unique home furnishings and accessories at the largest furniture and home decor markets in the nation. In addition to the benefit of spending quality father/son time together, their passion lies in bringing the best quality, and most unique pieces of furniture back to Eastern North Carolina. We do not want a piece of furniture to leave our facility that we would not be proud to showcase in our own homes. 


In 2013, Justin formed Justin Proctor Auctions and began having bi-weekly auctions featuring high quality home furnishings and accessories. The entire family is still involved in auctions, retail, and wholesale. If you are in need of auction services for estates, downsizing, or moving, please contact Justin via e-mail at


We look forward to the opportunity to earn your business, and if we have had the pleasure of already earning it, we sincerely thank you. 


-Paul, Samantha, Justin, Sarah, & Gabriella Proctor
