Unlike new clothes, vintage clothing is already broken in, has had time to establish its pedigree, and is almost always housetrained. Save on ensemble obedience training with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of vintage clothing and accessories at Raspberry Beret. This Groupon is valid at its Cambridge and Wakefield locations.
Raspberry Beret's team of wardrobe magicians conjures up a collection of consignment and vintage clothing, purveying name brands that have included DKNY, Prada, and Manolo Blahnik. Vintage duds run the gamut from day dresses to sophisticated evening dresses to eye-catching footwear. A classic western shirt ($18) pairs well with vintage jeans ($22), a more classic combination than breakdancing to polka music. Costume jewelry and other accessories complete ensembles, with bauble or metallic necklaces (about $15), chunky bangles, scarves, and purses. Customers can take a sneak peek at the selection in Cambridge or Wakefield to develop shopping game plans, much like bears preparing for hibernation by stocking their dens with cans of spam.
