“Wow, nice shirt!”
“That’s a great shirt!”
Everyone, everyone likes a compliment. No matter how healthy your reserve of self-confidence may be, getting a good word thrown in your direction is still delightfully delightful. In addition, the only thing better than getting some kudos, is knowing that it only cost you eight dollars, that’s right, eight dollars.
I own one of these magical eight dollar shirts, yes I do, and I got it at Repeat Boutique. I had driven by the three year-old designer consignment shop on Neponset Street repeatedly, but my first visit was only recently. After scooping up said shirt-of-wonder, as well as a few other gems, I am confident, I repeat, confident, that I will return … again and again.
Forever a treasure-seeker, a buccaneer of sorts, I have pillaged my fair share of swarthy swarthy consignment shops, yes indeed. I am here to announce and report that Repeat Boutique is far more “boutique” than your average good-willed district of garments. Simply put, it is well-organized and smells wonderfully wonderful … two things that go a long long way to enhance your plundering.
While the goods are good at Repeat Boutique, the greatest thing about this cozy cozy spot is the elegant yet easy, easy-like-Sunday-morning atmosphere that owner, Linda, has created. She is friendly, helpful and passionate about making Dorchester shine, one designer garment after another. After a great great conversation, and a lot of smiling, it was clear that Repeat Boutique was much much more than consignment. Linda’s truest of true vocation is helping urban marauders look their best, without having to shell out a chest of doubloons. A quest that is absolutely worth repeating.
Repeat Boutique is open:
Wednesday from noon to 5pm
Thursday and Friday, noon to 7pm
Saturday, 10am to 5pm
Sunday, 1pm to 5pm
