• Second Time Around

    Store Profiles  

    by Moses Y. Bension

    When you were in prep school you probably wore a Barbour or Bean sweater that wasn’t exactly new when you got it, especially if you were the youngest brother or sister in your family to attend said school (unless you had a university named after your great-great-great-great-grandfather). We’ve always borrowed (or stolen) clothes out of each others’ closets, so it’s about time there was an upscale thrift shop consignment shop that facilitated the tradition of that exchange.

    Second Time Around is that consignment shop. Since 1973, it has expanded from its little shop on Newbury Street in Boston to over 40 boutiques. It’s now known up and down the East Coast as the place to shop great second hand. Check out the women's "preppy" section at their Madison Avenue boutique. Brooks Brothers fleece blazers that still have the tags on them sit next to J. Crew cashmere sweaters in just as new condition...all for less than half of retail. How else are you going to get a hold of vintage Hermès? After all, new money is a concept that is relatively…well…new.

    Thanks for sharing!  My special hand-me-downs define my style so much that I started a blog about them.  This sounds like a store I would love, and I’ll plan to visit when I’m in New York in a few weeks.
