Central Massachusetts is begging for a day trip with boutiques that appeal to vintage seekers, home decor enthusiasts, and lovers of offbeat gifts. The businesses on this turf are proud and connected to the New England history around them while keeping in tune with the modern needs and desires of area residents.
