PLACES YOU COULD HANG: Thrift Shop of Boston


You love a good Thrift Store right? Who doesn’t? My fave (Thrift Shop of Boston) is tucked
away in Roslindale center and is the longest­running charitable Thrift Shop in the US (90 years
old). TSOB benefits “You” of course, being full of everything an urban thrifthunter could ever
want, but also benefits The Home For Little Wanderers, a 200 year old charity looking after the
needs of at­risk kids. Everybody WINS! Moreover, the staff are straight­up awesome folks, kind
of heart and groovy of soul. Check out Carlotta’s Boutique rack before you go and paint the
town red. Dig for vinyl nuggets, or stock up on gifts for the “little wanderers” in your own life. Plus, once you’ve loaded up on booty, you can stroll down Corinth St and discover the many
hidden pleasures of Rosi. If that doesn’t keep you coming back, then TSOB’s weekly color­sale
will…half­off all tagged items of that week’s color (my favorite therapy for a Blue Monday). With
any luck you’ll spot Sam or myself there shopping or loading up furniture going to a happy
customer. Please come say “Hi” if you do!
