i went to the expanded poor little rich girl in davis square! it was great! i tried on an azzedine alaia lace up skirt for 20$ but it was too small. it has the largest dressing rooms ive seen around here too.
they have a lot of items...even large sizes too.
check it out!

i knew about it...but i was just there last week and i didnt find anything.
i plan on going there on thursday to check out the new items.

the next time they'll do the 50% off thing is in the summer.

the first floor has been taken over by the boston costume store that was originally in the theatre district.

This poor thread needs to be rejuvenated!

I finally went to History in Cambridge (as mentioned by lucy ). It's so adorable; I love the stories that accompany each piece. I took some pics and did a write up for my blog. Here's a sampling of the goods...

I've actually had such great luck with the Goodwill in Roxbury - it's HUGE! And extremely well-organized/stocked.

I have a question for all my fellow Bostonians, Which flea markets do you go to?
I want to rent a booth to sell vintage clothes at one weekend this summer. What are the best flea markets to do so?
