WESTBOROUGH – The Boroughs Collective has set up shop at 21 E. Main St.

On April 27, Hygge House Books staged a grand opening at its new space. It was not only a chance for the shop to celebrate Indie Bookstore Day, but also to check out some of the collective’s other vendors.

Customers perused the shelves for the latest in adult and children’s books. One lucky patron discovered a golden ticket in the stacks – good for 12 free audiobooks.

There was also a scavenger hunt inside the bookstore; outside, the Simmer n Spice food truck provided lunch and snacks.

And for those wishing to put up their feet, or even take a little nap? There were plenty of comfy chairs, a bean bag, and even a “children’s nook” underneath the space that once served as a bank teller’s drive-through window.

Several other vendors at the collective had goods available for purchase, from soaps to artwork.

“It was a very good turnout,” said Anna Leduc, the owner of Leduc Arts & Antiques who founded the collective.

The Boroughs Collective is made up of nearly two dozen vendors offering a curated collection of antiques, art and accessories. These vendors include Marion’s Workshop, Pillows & Things, Décor, Katy’s Creations and Handcrafted Against the Grain.

There will be two events planned for the collective – an opening for family and friends on Friday, May 17, at 6:30 p.m.; and a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the 9/495 Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, June 5, at 5:15 p.m.
