Writing about seeing myself as a 50 year old in college left me with fond memories of how much I enjoyed shopping in thrift stores. Boston in the 80s was a prime vintage clothing shopping scene. My favorite finds were sweaters from Norway that I still wear to this day ($20/ea), a cow-skin coat from Spain ($25), and cocktail dresses from the fifties (um…not sure but I doubt I paid more than $20/ea).
The best buys are the ones that still look new today...timeless style and great quality. Thrilling to find and still fun to wear twenty five years later.
