“Vintage bargains galore!”

The Garment District
Ranked #8 of 33 Shopping in Cambridge
Attraction details
Reviewed 15 June 2012 via mobile

I would definitely recommend this place to bargain hunters of vintage and second hand clothing. The vintage clothes were the cheapest I saw in Boston and there were some great floral tea dresses and jumpsuits at decent prices. I didn't look in the 'By the Pound' area but spent a good hour looking through the rails of ladies clothes.

The plus side: plenty of items to browse thru upstairs if you want clothing from previous decades. The first floor has costumes and a floor covered in used clothing for sale by the pound. Lots of props to take funny photos of or with.

The down side: clothing can be very worn and faded. The store and merchandise is not very clean. I found multiple items covered in dust. Employees are encouraged to dress any way they want and in turn a few looked like homeless runaways.

In the end, it's a Salvation Army rebelling against society.

We went during halloween weekend so the first floor that is usually "Dollar by the pound" had been converted to only costumes (which were very expensive too). We found very good quality used clothing on the second floor and almost found a pair of expensive timberland boots too. The prices are very very low for the quality too.

Its maybe the giantest used clothing store you can imagine. Everything from vintage to contemporary plus costumes and accessories. A must for Halloween. A must for vintage and thrift fans. Not very convenient sans car, but you can walk from Kendall T in about 10 minutes.

They have a huge collection of stuff, mostly 1960s-1980s, but includes older and newer clothing. They also carry shoes, costumes, and hosiery. On the first floor you can buy stuff by the pound!
