There has been a shift to thrift recently and some of the best wardrobe pieces have already been a part of someone else’s collection. Boston is one of the hippest, trendiest cities and its thrifting is no different.
Rock City Resale: Rock City Resale is clean organized and in the hippest part of Boston. This store sells vintage clothing, accessories, furniture, all forms of music and weird knickknacks. 379 Cambridge Street, Allston.
Buffalo Exchange: This thrift store is actually a chain of stores across the country coming out from Tuscan, Arizona. Buffalo Exchange works to somehow recycle all of their clothes if they can’t be sold and raises money for the environment each year. This location is extremely large and the clothing selection is diverse.180 Harvard Ave, Boston.
Second Appearance: This shop has been in business for almost 40 years and offers a wide range of clothes from casual and chic to authentic vintage. This small store carries all sizes no matter age or style. 801 Washington St, Newton.
Found: This one-roomed store is a highend thrift store, selling big names like Tory Burch and Lacoste. The store is set up like a boutique and sells both men and women’s clothing. The vintage clothing at Found has to be from within the last two years. 255 Elm Street, Somerville.
The Garment District: A list on thrift stores would not be complete with the crowing jewel of Cambridge. This store is two floors and is organized by type of clothing, such as flannel shirts to women’s dresses from the 1960s. There are a variety of options of wardrobe staples and going-out clothes. 200 Broadway, Cambridge.
