    Re: Your favorite stores for used goods in greater Boston

    There's a new consignment furniture store in Medford on Salem St, called Eddigan's.  This guy gets great slightly used furniture and it is all pretty affordable.  There are a few pieces that are kind of pricey but they are worth it.  The furniture ranges from antiques to contemporary.  I consigned a dining set, mid-century.
    He also showcases local artist's original work if you're looking for nice, affordable artwork for your walls.

    Everyone on the North Shore should visit GINGER'S CLOSET at 101 Lynn St., in Peabody!

    They are a Consignment and Resale Shoppe with beautiful things.   Everything is so lovely that you think you are in a regular dress shop!

    Used clothes

    The very very best consignment shop for clothes is the Closet Exchange in Needham.  You will not have to pick through a lot of so-so stuff - they only carry gently used items.

    That's it?  Music, Clothes and Books witha very minor smattering of other goods.  What happens to the rest of our materialistic society?  How about building supplies?  Furniture?  Office goods?(hey Goldsteins!) Lawn and Garden stuff?  Used Art? 'cmon - people watching their pennies.  We can make a better list than this.

    Record Exchange, Salem, MA

    Hey, if you're on the North Shore, you don't have to drive all the way to freakin' Cambridge or Boston.  Check out Record Exchange, 256 Washington Street, in Salem.  Used CDs, VHS, DVDs, and lots and lots of vinyl!  Awesome!

    Re: Your favorite stores for used goods in greater Boston

    i have luck at the salvation army in brockton - its new building is right next to the westgate mall.  my last trip there i got a pair of ann taylor dress pants with the tags still on them that retail at $70.  i paid $2 for them  :)
    they have houseware and furniture but a very small selection and the few times i have been there i was underwhelmed by it. their shoe selection is poor too.
    i have found lots of brand names there - gap, abercrombie, aeropostale, american eagle, jcrew. i even found a marc jacobs blouse for $4

    Re: Your favorite stores for used goods in greater Boston

    I have the best luck at Goodwill's Harrison Ave. store.  Its like the old downtown Filenes Basement - if you really look through the racks, you are bound to find some great quality items. I find designer and name brand items that look like they have hardly been worn. People are always amazed when they compliment me and I tell them it was from Goodwill. 

    And, it really makes me feel good knowing that the money I paid goes to support Goodwill's job training programs. The new Savers are advertising that they support charities but they are actually making a profit on the used clothes they sell - they ask charities to collect clothes for them but the charitities only get back a very small portion of what you pay for the clothes the rest profits Savers. Everyone loves a bargain but I would rather directly support a charity instead of letting a for-profit company make money from my used clothes...but that's just my opinion!

    Whether they be stores specializing in music, clothes, electronics, video games, movies, instruments, or just bigger consignment stores that sell all kinds of used goods, what are your favorite places to browse - and buy - secondhand items in the Boston area? What makes these stores so great - the selection, the prices, the quality of merchendise? Share your "best of" lists for stores that sell used items.

    Goodwill on Harrison Avenue has great stuff, but their prices have gone up.  $5 for a used t-shirt is too high when you can buy new t-shirts for about $3 a piece at Job Lot or Walmart.  You need to have a block of time in order to be able to search through everything, but I get all my daughter's A&F, Hollister and Juicy stuff here since I refuse to pay $25 for one of their t's.  They also have a good selection of books.  The Boston Building Cooperative on Terrace Street in Roxbury is a good place to pick up household items if you are renovating or restoring an old house.  I picked up a bunch of glass door knobs, french doors in the past.  They've also had kitchen cabinets (new) or replacement windows if you can make the measurements work.

    Elite Repeat in Hanover for furniture.  Glory Daze in Milton for clothes.  Neither of these is dirt cheap, but, quality abounds!

    Savers used to be really good until they began getting greedy.  I used to find really good stuff there for little money.  Now if something's got a big name brand (jcrew, banana republic, abercrombie, american eagle, gap, etc) they jack the prices up.  Stick to the thrift stores that TRULY are thrift stores.  Ones that price all items the same price regardless of their brand name.

    Re: Your favorite stores for used goods in greater Boston

    My hands down favorite is Lemon Tree Goods on the route 27 right beside the Dairy Queen on the Wayland/Natick line.  This store is awesome!!!  The clothes turn over super quick so there are always new items to check out.  They also sell new gifts items (jewelry, cards, flowers, frames etc...) so it is easy to run in quick and grab a gift.  I don't know who they get for their consigners but the clothes are amazing and often still have the original tags on them.  I also love the ladies that work there - they are very helpful and make clothes shopping tons of fun!  Who needs to go to the mall and deal with the parking and high prices when you can just swing by Lemon Tree Goods.  And, as an added bonus, you can send the kids next door to eat an ice cream at Dairy Cream while you do something for yourself.  Love it!  Love it! Love it!

    Lemon Tree Goods in Natick

    I have scored a Tory Burch dress, Cole Hann rain jacket, Cole Hann purse, Gucci bag, Theory pants, cotton flouncy tops for the summer, and a few other things I am forgetting about. My mom, my friends, all have found great items at very reasonable prices. The shop has a friendly feel. If you tell the staff what you like and your size--they will remember you and even call you when new stuff comes in. Going there now is a weekly habit!!!!!!!!!

    Gotta agree - I love Lemon Tree goods- very cute stuff, clean and pleasant atmosphere. The prices are great- some stores are way too expensive.

    Hands down the best consignment shop for women's clothing is located in Peabody. Ginger's Closet has all kinds of high end labels. The website is awesome as well. gingerscloset.org
    I've had alot of luck with purchasing genuine Coach bags (only 3!), Ann Taylor suits for work and a large selection of shoes.

    General Goods, Andover, MA

    I always find something here.  They have furniture new, used and vintage/antique.  Plus lighting, bath and body, jewelry, GREAT housewarming gifts.  They have brands like Cucina, Vietri, Mariposa, Casafina.  It is the first place I look for something unique.  The store changes all the time and since most is one of a kind it's always fun to at least run in and browse to see what's new.  Plus, since it's right next door to a Dunkin' Donuts I am there way more than I should be!  Definitely worth checking out!
