Best of Boston

2021 Best Vintage Shop

Bobby from Boston

For decades, Bobby from Boston was the spot for vintage duds, thanks to owner Bobby Garnett’s eye for perfectly weathered leather jackets and other stylish finds. When he passed away in 2016, many thought the store would die with him — but thankfully, his daughter Jessica Garnett Carrion has grabbed the torch, opening a boutique with the same name in Somerville’s Bow Market. And she’s already proving she can carry on the legacy, sourcing everything from authentic military jackets to flapper-style pearls that make playing dress-up feel like a very grownup endeavor.
