After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I was excited to check out this store. I realize any second hand store is going to be very "hit or miss", but I was disappointed with the level of designers in stock and the totally cramped store....More

I stopped going into this store BECAUSE of the OWNER! Early on arriving in Boston years ago, I bought a couple of Versace pants... I thought it was just my imagination that he shot me a look of "you don't deserve these!" I'm the first...More

Consignment shopping is hit or miss but I've had a lot of success at the closet. Items are in very good condition and well priced. It's a well organized store but they have a lot of merchandise so it can be difficult to sort through...More

My wife and I stumbled across the Closet while strolling along Newbury Street on our first visit to Boston. I could not believe the designer shoes and clothing for men. The ladies have a far larger selection. Strangely, I was the one who left with...More

What a horrible experience - as one user mentioned, the staff is so rude it completely sours any good finds this store has to offer. We went on a Sunday and watched in absolute horror as the owner angrily shoved several older ladies out the...More

Fun to look through the clothes; sometimes you can find a real gem. However, beware: the owner is astonishingly rude, as other reviewers note. No eye contact, dismissive, treats you like you're a bother. I'm one of those people who just has trouble spending money...More

Designer jeans for $49.99, what's not to like? All brand names - Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Missoni, Prada, etc, etc. Plan on spending an hour here easy. Loved the experience of shopping at the Closet! Will definitely make it a permanent stop on my travels to...More
