Check out the new seasonal shop (temporary? maybe, maybe not) popping up on Westminster Street. Fans of Calico’s New Bedford location are certainly willing to make the drive for her super collection of vintage and gently-used clothing, but for a month you won’t have to. Remember what I said about not shopping on Black Friday? Well — Calico is the new black! — there is a special dispensation for independent retailers and she’s right near Craftland and they have some nice stuff as well. Obviously my complaints about rampant consumerism referred to the (sometimes fatal) doorbuster sales at the big box crap-atoria, not the little stores selling DIY crafts — and especially vintage and resale! That’s exactly what you should be buying. And lots of it. (And stop by What Cheer Antiques in Wayland Square and say ‘hi’ to Jen who turned me on to Calico in the first place.)
Calico opens today, 220 Westminster Street, through December 31st
