I know I already posted asking where the best places in Boston to shop are, so, at the risk of being obnoxious, i'm going to ask again. I want to make my trip to boston vintage/craft/thrift/boutique-tastic and I was hoping you bostonians would be of help.
A.) i here there is a urban outfitters that sells its mismanufactured clothes in the basement for dirt cheap. Is this true? if so, where is this urban outfitters located?
B.) What is(are) the best vintage/unique boutique/fashion neighborhood in the city? Elle did an article on cross-country vintage shopping and it mentioned a couple places, one being Gumshoe...>is that what its called?< but it didn't mention any good neighborhoods to go to. I want to get the best shopping out of one day because my boyfriend and mom will be with me and they don't love clothes quite as much as i do....
C.) anything else you can tell me?

THANKS AGAIN!

Hey,

Clothes shopping really isn't my gig, but I've got a couple answers for you...

1) There are two Urban Outfitters in Boston:
 NEWBURY STREET, BOSTON, MA 02115-2738--(617) 236-0088
11 J.F. KENNEDY STREET, CAMBRIDGE, MA 02138-4908--(617) 864-0070]
I'm guessing that the one in Cambridge (Harvard Square) is the one you're looking for...

2) Check out http://www.garmentdistrict.com/  they often have some cool/interesting/vintage things.  They're near Kenmore Square (not far from Harvard...)

Hope that helps a little!  And I hope you all have a nice time in Boston! I'm in the tourist industry (local museum) and always want visitors to have fun  here!

It is in Cambridge...Harvard SQ on the Red Line.  The store is on JFK St, anyone in the area should be able to point it out to you.

B.) What is(are) the best vintage/unique boutique/fashion neighborhood in the city? Elle did an article on cross-country vintage shopping and it mentioned a couple places, one being Gumshoe...>is that what its called?< but it didn't mention any good neighborhoods to go to. I want to get the best shopping out of one day because my boyfriend and mom will be with me and they don't love clothes quite as much as i do....
The Garment District in Kendall Sq. Cambridge is the best vintage store, but there's not really much else near by...I can't think of any neighborhoods that are like what you want...If pricey is OK, there's Newbury St. (which has an awesome Lush Store and another Urban Outfitters)

sorry I can't be of any more help, but I can't think of any specific place that has more than one or two cool shops...anyone else?

Urban Outfitters stuff really isnt that cheap, even the bargain stuff. It really depends on what you find. You should def. go to the garnment district (its a store) because you can buy stuff for one price there.

I used to get a lot of my clothes in the Urban Outfitters basement--it's not dirt cheap, but you can get some good deals there. Harvard Square in general is a nice area to wander around in. Newbury Comics is a great CD store, and there's a pretty decent small thrift shop in the basement next door (Housing Works, maybe?)

Davis square also has some nice boutiques and a salvation army with decent selection.

I was never a huge fan of the garment district--it's kind of a pain to get to, and their stuff is a little over priced for thrift stuff. But a lot of people adore it.

Newbury Street is totally pricey, but has lots of nice boutiques and consignment shops. As well as great people watching.

You're making me miss Boston a little! Hope you have a great trip!
