Bobby’s from Boston

Can a hip, downtown Boston neighborhood be home to an iconic store Hollywood stylists and movie makers have on a short list but residents across town have never heard of before? The answer is yes.

Last week I was watching WGBH, Boston’s PBS station, when Bobby’s From Boston was featured. Bobby’s is just two blocks up the street from where I live, and apparently remains a relative unknown  to local fashionistas who love “vintage”.

Bobby’s keeps no website and jokes that their store hours are “Closed until tomorrow 12:00 – 6:00pm”. This iconic shop located at 19 Thayer Street is one of the coolest stores I’ve ever visited.  Located along the pedestrian walkway that brings thousands into the South End each Sunday for the SoWa Open Market, Bobby’s is just one of several very unique and truly one-of-a-kind shops worth checking out. PBS recent interview of Bobby is what spurred me to write this post.  Below I’ve included an excerpt from his interview for WGBH-TV.

One response to “Bobby’s from Boston

  1. Love this post. I also love posts about high-quality stores that may be well known in their neighborhood, but unheard of in the rest of the metro area.
