Second Time Around 322 Newbury St, Boston, MA02115 Second Time Around sells relatively upscale vintage clothing, shoes and accessories for women and men and offers all the…More advantages of buying used clothes—you can pay a lot less, prevent needless waste and conserve resources. It has locations across the east coast, which often—as is the case at 322 Newbury Street—occupy the trendiest shopping hot spots. This location—near Newbury Comics and the Boston Architectural College—is one of three Newbury Street locations. It's the newest, and is larger than the other two. Its wares are displayed in a long, garden-level studio with walls of exposed brick. Unlike many other such stores (Goodwill, Boomerangs), the clothing at Second Time Around is acquired not through the consigners' charitable instincts but through fiscal incentives. Anyone can create an account online and consign clothes through the mail. Forty percent of the profits are paid (in quarterly installments) whenever your former things are sold, but note that these items sell at Second Time Around for as low as 30 to 50 percent of their retail value. The shop prefers to sell high-end, "better name brand" clothing, in "like-new condition" and will refuse anything older than two years. In this way, customers can buy near retail-quality apparel in the current style for a fraction of the usual price.
Though Rick Walkers specializes in cowboy boots, the store carries a broad range of "Americana" goods, including…More clothes, accessories and other gear. Much of the stock is vintage, procured on consignment. In its hip Newbury Street location, in the heart of Boston, Rick Walkers caters to the emerging "urban cowboy" counterculture.
Outside the Rick Walkers entrance is a statue of an enormous cowboy boot. Inside, the store is decorated with authentic cow-skulls, a stuffed armadillo, a saddle and an enormous taxidermied rattlesnake. You'll also see the rock influence here: there are amps, cords, an acoustic guitar and even a honky-tonk piano. Every inch, it seems, of available wall space is occupied by retro advertisements, vintage posters and the like.
One Sunday per month, the store hosts a concert. Each begins with a featured guest and later evolves into a folksy, rocking jam -- Rick Walker (the proprieter) is himself an avid musician; his band is called "Blood, Sweat and Gears."
Though it bore another name prior to 2003, Rick Walkers and its nostalgic chic has long been a fixture of Back Bay, patronized by such notables as Melissa Etheridge and Jacob Dylan.
