There is a great vintage store in cambridge called the Garment District.  It is in Kendal Square. It is huge and if you are in for an adventure you can always go down stairs and try your luck at dollar a pound. Used to get all my clothes here in high school

There are also some shops on Newbury St as well but G.D. is huge and will have the best selection.  You can take the T (redline) from Park or Charles MGH both near Newbury one stop over the river to Kendal and it is a short walk from the T.  You will also be treated to one of the best views of the city as you go over the river as a bonus.

I second the Garment District for vintage clothes, though I don’t remember a particularly good selection of handbags. I’m going to keep checking this thread– I love vintage clothes and can’t seem to find good stores to shop at!

There’s also a vintage store called Oona’s in Harvard Square, but it hasn’t got a wide selection. There are a few places on Newbury St. but they’re mostly expensive estate jewelry, as opposed to cheap costume stuff.

Oh, and there’s a random vintage-type store down by Boston Common, it’s on the same street as the giant movie theater, it has tons of records in the window and, last I checked, a mannequin with a flowered chiffon dress (from the 30’s) on it. It’s mostly knick-knacks, but they might have something.

Second Time Around on Newbury street (also somewhere else) might be worth checking out especially if you’re around the corner at Priscilla’s!

 Thursday is a great day to be shopping in Boston because everything’s open, but there aren’t that many people.

Lady Luxe in Cambridge just opened and has an incredible selection of vintage clothing. They dabble in antique furniture as well. I bought a bracelet and earring set for my future mother in law that I know she’s going to absolutely love. Definitely check it out if you’re in the area, the owners are simply charming.

Poor Little Rich Girl in Union Square in somerville, Oona’s in Harvard, Proletariat, and then Bobby from Boston in the South End. I know you already went but I loved this thread and hope its useful for other brides in the future. I love thrifting!!!

During my grad school days, I loved Cafe Society in Brookline.  It tends to have quirkier pieces than the Newberry St shops, and the woman who owns it is really helpful.
