Me and a pal of mine are on a crafty kick lately, especially of the clothing-recon kind. Can anyone give good directions to Urban Renewals? Is it T-accessable at all? And any advice on the place in general?

Urban Renewals thrift store is pretty great.  Hit or miss like most thrift stores but it's so huge that you're bound to find something.  They have tons and tons of clothing.  And some housewares, furniture, books... but mostly clothing.

It's at 122 Brighton Ave in Allston. To get there, the closest T stop is probably "Packards Corner" on the B Line (Green Line) and then walk like under 5 minutes down Brighton Ave.  It's cash only so make sure you have enough dough when you go.  I can't tell you the number of times I've gone there and had to put back some awesome find 'cause I was like $1.00 short! Sad

(Beware that I just heard that there's another business with the same name in Boston and they sell fancy furniture or something.)

Coincidentally, there's another thrift store right at Packards Corner called Hadassah Thrift Store.  It's on Comm Ave.  I think they are open every day except Saturdays.  It's smaller than Urban Renewals but it's still pretty good.

Hope you have fun!

Urban Renewals is awesome. Leah's right, Packard's Corner is the best way to get there by T. Set aside a lot of time to go through everything. It's a gigantic store.
