Sharona Gamliel and Ric Martinkus, co-owners of Paradiso, offer one of the most eclectic assortments of decor, furniture and gifts. But the unexpected array of antiques also makes the Hampden store a must-visit. There are so many antiques, centered on mid-century furniture, jewelry and lighting, that they account for 80 percent of the business' merchandise, according to Gamliel.
