Best of Boston

2002 Best Consignment Store

Second Time Around

Some things just get better with age—especially at Second Time Around, where last year’s splurges are today’s total steal. Sort through racks of gently used Gucci, BCBG Max Azria, and Dolce & Gabbana pants, suits, tops, and jeans, all at a fraction of their original prices and none more than two years old. Staffers are as helpful as they are fashion-conscious, and can often tell you the history of the designer suit they’re ringing up.
