“What a charming find. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. The store was full of fun and beautiful items. I found the perfect memento of my visit to Boston…a painting by a local artist for my home. I love that there is a mix of new and old. I look forward to visiting again and to see what wonderful treasures they have to offer” – Leah D.
“My wife and I visited Upstairs Downstairs today and were really impressed with the selection and prices. Laura and the rest of the staff were incredibly helpful and responsive. We ended up picking a few really great pieces to help furnish our new apartment and were very happy with our purchase. AND, in the time of covid everyone was wearing masks and they provided complimentary hand sanitizers (even multiple options) which made us feel very safe.” – James A.
“I just had the pleasure of visiting Upstairs Downstairs Antiques on Charles Street. The owner’s sophistication and good taste in artwork, home furnishings and table décor means that there is something for everyone. I love this store and would recommend it highly when you visit Beacon Hill. There is something special for everyone in the store at all different prices.” – DeLacy C.
