Meet the Marketplace: Boston Road Collection – Vintage and Antique Collectibles


Boston Road Collection is a vintage and antique collectibles shop located on the second floor of Hartville Marketplace. A fan favorite, these vendors set up shop back in 2002. Marketplace visitors have come to love the items at this shop, making it a must-see every time they stop by. So let’s learn more about the couple behind the collectibles, shall we? Dan and Brenda Metzgar met at a coffee shop in Alliance back in 1981. As they got to talking, the couple was surprised to learn a unique hobby they had in common: both Dan and Brenda had been collecting vintage and antique items since high school! The rest is history…

Dan and Brenda’s favorite items to collect range from primitive country and folk art to old stoneware, and even toys! Collectors love shopping the variety of goods showcased at Boston Road Collection, as there is always something new to look at each time they visit. As of late, Dan and Brenda have noticed a shift in the way visitors are shopping. Usually, collectors will stop by looking for specific, more expensive older antiques to add to their collection.

Lately, however, shoppers have been attracted to less expensive goods that they can refurbish. Either way, the couple finds great satisfaction in seeing customers’ eyes light up at the unique vintage and antique collectibles at the shop. Boston Road Collection has become a staple at Hartville Marketplace, attracting visitors near and far in search of the next addition to their vintage and antique collections. Whether you’re a seasoned Marketplace shopper or have yet to stop by, you’re sure to find something new and exciting at this unique antique shop!
