ABOUT US

We're in our second decade!!

 

Picture This Antiques started in 2013....well, actually it was more like 65 years ago when my parents instilled the notion that collecting historical items and mementos was a good idea (and showing them off was even better). Marrying an antiques lover over 44 years ago helped as well, and together we've expanded our passion for unique and vintage collections into Picture This! Antiques.

Quite frankly, we're having a terrific time!  We're continually expanding our search for beautiful and unforgettable relics of the past, and while I truly enjoy exploring for new discoveries (and who doesn't?), I absolutely love sharing these finds with our guests and customers. At Picture This!, you'll not just find an antique or vintage item; you'll also discover the incredible history behind our truly fun and unique pieces.

The PTA display booths in Wayside Antiques in West Boylston and Off The Common Antiques in Grafton showcase some of our finest items with monthly themed sales and expanding collections. Our followers on Facebook and Instagram learn about our ever-changing stock as well as special events throughout the year (so keep following and sharing us!). And our own seasonal small shop, The Picture This Antiques/PTA Vintage Shoppe in West Boylston, has even more of our collectibles showcased weekly in an intimate country setting!

 

Our various in-door and out-door location shows and sales in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and throughout the rest of New England provide a unique antique display experience for my visitors and guests. You'll enjoy the charm of vintage accessories and the character of classic and unique prints and advertising, while also indulging in our array of 'fun' antique cameras, toys, collectibles, music, books, ephemera, and one-of-a-kind items from the early-mid 20th century. With hundreds of framed artifacts, you'll be able to 'picture' how each item will look in your home, venue or office. The old radios are always playing the sounds of bygone eras, and our changing displays and inventory make each visit feel like a new trip through a time machine. Every item has a unique story, and I look forward to sharing those stories with you soon at one of our sales events!
