Fantastic 5 is a regular post featuring my reviews of five thrift and/or consignment stores all over the US! I’ve visited each and every one, and I’m excited to share my thoughts (and steals) with fellow thrifters. If you’ve been to any of the stores I mention, please do leave a comment and I’ll be happy to add your experiences to the index! Here are today’s 5.
STA is one of my favorite stores on Newbury, for sure. Most recently, I found a purple Banana Republic cardigan for $7.50.
Stumbled across this place on my way to Beacon’s Closet and tumbled out hours later with an armload of clothing and shoes. Wallet: $40 lighter. It carries everything: Anthropologie, H&M, Jeffrey Campbell, Banana Republic, UO, Free People, Kenzie, Diesel, and more. I can’t wait to go back with more time, money, and energy. This place leaves Buffalo Exchange in the dust–and the one on 26th is quite nice! Favorite buy: a beautiful UO landscape print cardigan with the tags on. They also have a 7 day return policy but I definitely will not be returning anything!!
It’s a small store but they have a really decent selection – lots of J. Crew, Banana Republic and Gap. I found a Marc by Marc Jacobs top, a theory top and a really nice pair of skinny Gap khakis at $3.75 each. Can’t beat that!
Good mix of brands from Ann Taylor to Nanette Lepore, but the styles tend to lean towards the older crowd so I rarely find anything. My mom has great luck here though and they have excellent sales! Other brands that I spotted include Lilly Pulitzer, luxury handbags from Prada, Gucci, Michael Kors, etc., French Connection, J. Crew, and St. John. The prices are pretty reasonable as well.
Picked up some nice Banana Republic cardigans and tops, all for under $30. They had a lot of really nice designer pieces too!
