“Giant, comprehensive, a must for thrift shoppers”

The Garment District
Ranked #8 of 33 Shopping in Cambridge
Attraction details
Reviewed 14 August 2008

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!

Beyond the novelty of being able to buy Goodwill castoffs by the pound from a pile on the floor with the local homeless population, and being charged too much for the Salvation Army extras upstairs that they took the time to hang, this place isn't worth finding. The directions we pulled were confusing and left us lost (and frustrated by one-way streets) more than once! There is no real parking in the area, so if you're lucky you'll find an open metered spot within 3 blocks and make the trek before your time runs out. Also, beware the hope that this big pink building will catch your eye so that you won't really need to rely on your directions- apparently a pink building in Cambridge means a large brick building with a moderate pink stripe along the bottom. The costumes are cheap and the whole place lacked a genuine sense of self.
