Thrift Shop

2017 Winner: Boomerangs


Owned and operated by the AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts, this neighborhood institution puts all of its proceeds into supporting the cause. So you’ll do good and look even better dressing in secondhand steals from well-organized shops in Jamaica Plain, West Roxbury and Central Square—plus a special edition store in the South End, where you can score luxe pieces from the likes of Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton.
