2015 Winner: Twentieth Century Limited


A few steps below street level in Beacon Hill lies a rhinestone wonderland that would make Liberace blush. Upon first glance, Twentieth Century Limited’s bevy of bling may seem overwhelming, but owner Paul Turnberg ensures displays are neatly organized by style and labeled by designer. Shop for pieces from Karl Lagerfeld, YSL and Miriam Haskell or browse collections of Bakelite. The best part? Each trip comes complete with a history lesson thanks to Turnberg’s 55 years in the biz, so you’ll leave with some sparkle and a story.
