Browsing at one of my favorite places for good finds.
I’ve been going to the Upton House antique store in Littleton, Massachusetts, for years. On a recent, early spring day, I found myself in the area and decided to stop by.
Upton House Antiques has been around for almost forty years. It’s named after the former owners, in a converted barn. There are several rooms, providing a plenty of space to explore. Generally the focus is on farmhouse antiques. However, I always find an interesting variety, including nautical antiques, old books, yellow ware, just to name a few. Most antiques seem to be in the mid-to-late-1800's through the early-1900's. As a fan of old, wooden boxes, I always find at least a couple I’d love to take home.
Located right off of route 495, it’s very easy to find. As Eileen explained, its location offers a fun break for visitors headed up to northern New England or returning from it. Predictably, its busiest time is during the holidays. Regardless of when you may seek to visit, it’s open virtually every day of the year. Whenever you’re looking for a unique piece or driving through and seeking to stretch your legs, Upton House Antiques is certainly worth a visit!
