I come from a long line of bargain hunters. My grandmother was known for reusing and repurposing regular household items and furniture into creative new inventions. She was also a serious coupon clipper. She passed that spirit onto my father, who is the ultimate bargain shopper. He lives for a great deal. That genetic predisposition is clearly the reason I have always loved 2nd Time Around.
For those who are not familiar, 2nd Time Around is a brand of consignment shops with over 40 locations across the U.S. Personally, I've had the best luck at the stores in Portsmouth, NH and Newton Centre, MA.
On my last trip, I managed to snag a Marc Jacobs tote, an Abercrombie leather belt, a J. Crew cardigan and a fantastic piece of costume jewelry.
If you want to experience 2nd Time Around right here in Boston, you're in luck. They have three locations on Newbury Street alone!
176 Newbury Street:
219 Newbury Street:
324 Newbury Street:
Did you have any idea you could comb through three different sets of goods on just one street? With that in mind, 2nd Time Around is launching their first annual 2nd Time Around 2015 Fall Boutique Crawl. It's like a bar crawl, but for incredible style steals.
All three locations will be decked out for the occasion. The event will feature consultations with stylists, live music, wine, snacks and exclusive giveaways, including the chance to win a $100 gift card to 2nd Time Around.
In addition, guests will receive:
- 5% additional discount on all purchases
- 5% additional commission for all consignors
- 5% of all sales during the event will be donated to Dress for Success in Boston
The Fall Boutique Crawl is Thursday, September 24th from 5:00pm - 9:00pm and is invite-only. I've partnered with 2nd Time Around to offer ten Pop.Bop.Shop. readers the chance to win their way in.
To enter to win a pair of tickets to the 2nd Time Around 2015 Fall Boutique Crawl, leave a comment below sharing your best fashion find.
This giveaway will remain open until Sunday, September 20, 2015 at 11:59pm ET. You must be at least 18 years old to enter. Winners will be contacted on Monday, September 21, 2015.
Good luck, fashionistas!
