2nd Time Around
2nd Time Around actually has locations across the country, which may explain why they have some of the best second-hand clothes in Boston. You’ll only find lightly used or like-new clothes, shoes, and accessories here, as they only accept consignments less than two years old. Stop in to find brands like Calvin Klein, Chanel, and Prada at up to 70% off.
Bobby From Boston
It’s rare to find consignment shops that specialize in men’s clothing, but Bobby From Boston is here to help. Customers rave about the variety of pieces you can find from a range of different time periods, regions, and categories. While they definitely have a strong collection for men, they also carry women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories of the same high quality.
If you’re searching for a wide variety of unique brands, Oona’s is the place to go. They’ve been a vintage clothing staple in Harvard Square since 1972 and are one of the few independent stores left in the square. They have always encouraged small business in the area, and their stock includes clothing for both men and women. You can count on them for elegant, vintage fashion.
SAULT New England
It’s difficult to find customers with a bad review of SAULT New England. Located in the South End, this independent shop is a gem for men’s clothing. Don’t let the small storefront fool you; hidden inside are unique finds in not only men’s clothes, but also in household items and grooming supplies. It may be on the pricier side as far as second-hand shopping goes, but customers swear by SAULT’s pristine quality and ever-changing selection.

The Garment District
While this is unfortunately not an entire district of the city, their selection is so expansive that they probably could be. At The Garment District, you can browse their 12,000 square feet of clothes, shoes, and accessories for both men and women. Not only do they have the traditional brands you might find elsewhere, but they’re also stocked with attire for every decade and costumes for every occasion.
