Clothing keeps people warm and looking fashionable, but its most important duty is replenishing bellybutton lint. Keep navels stocked with today's Groupon: for $45, you get $100 worth of designer clothing, handbags, and accessories at Newbury and Smith.
Newbury and Smith’s fashionable shopkeepers peddle boutique consignment items including discounted clothing, handbags, and accessories from designers such as Gucci, Prada, and Louis Vuitton. Stash a poodle or a small poodle-shaped purse inside a handbag from Coach ($140) or adorn wrists with handmade glass beaded jewelry ($88–$120). Women can turn heads at a party in a Carlisle dress ($198+) or turn a game of tennis into a private sauna by wearing an Ann Taylor suit ($68) on the court. Consignors regularly fill the shop with a stream of new products that change constantly, and workers restock shelves with finds purchased during trips out in the dangerous, unchartered field.
