Lenny & Me

Vintage and thrift attire (and occasional housewares) share the floor space in this rather sprawling resale store, where you can buy, sell or trade. Keep an eye out for steals like a gently worn Diane von Furstenberg wrap while you size up the latest selection of polyester frocks and locally designed charm-adorned jewels.

Feathers Boutique

A Western, bohemian vibe dominates this beloved organized-
by-color vintage spot. We shopped the rainbow and found a toffee ’70s prairie skirt on the desert-hued rack, an orange ’60s caftan in the sunset-colored section and an emerald paisley scarf among the jewel tones.

Vintage. Chic. Worldly.

Inspired by her mom’s antique jewelry store in Edgartown, MA, Leaf Shea opened her Brookline boutique 19 years ago.  At first glance, it appears like a vintage consignment store, but this cozy and super eclectic shop is filled with unique treasures from around the world such as Moroccan belts, Turkish stoned jewelry, Swedish organic silver jewelry, and all new chic apparel. It’s a girl’s dream closet with pieces that are guaranteed to solicit compliments each and every time. The local shop is tucked away in Coolidge Corner waiting to be uncovered by the adventurous modern vintage fashionista.  If you are looking for something special for you or a friend, stop by Vintage and explore a world of treasure at this Brookline boutique.

About Leaf Shea

IMG_2124

What inspired you to open your store?

“Well my mother had a business and I worked all my teen years. I was working in the film business in Los Angeles and I hated the way people treated each other, so when my mother asked if I wanted to open up this store, I took the opportunity. When I first opened, I started carrying a lot of antique jewelry, and then began carrying clothing. Traveling influenced me a lot because I’ve been all over Europe, all through Mexico, and I love the different trends from all over the world.”

What do you like best about owning a store?

“I like the flexibility, with having a family and everything. It’s not like I’m trying to make a lot of money, I just love the people and the community. Coolidge Corner is great because you can walk down the street and know people. If it weren’t for the community, this store wouldn’t be here.”

What makes your store unique?

“I think that we just make people feel really comfortable. We help put together outfits, blending modern looks with antique jewelry. I mean a lot of people get compliments on the things they buy here. We’re not pushy; we let them shop at their leisure. It’s kinda like a big closet, with a great big jewelry box to put outfits together. ”

How would describe your store?

“We blend the new and old together. With new boutique clothing and antique vintage jewelry.We also carry lines from all over the world, like Sweden, Turkey, and India.”

What are your favorite local shops?

” Brookline Brooksmith. I like that it’s a real old-fashioned bookstore. It’s comfy and cozy, and doesn’t have the sterility of big stores like Barnes & Noble.”

Sielian’s Vintage Apparel

This vintage store remains under the radar, despite an inventory of insanely gorgeous dresses from the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s. Nothing looks at all dated; the thigh-grazing shifts seem thoroughly modern and so do the floor-sweeping sundresses. All the racks, categorized by color, are easy to browse. A bounty of shoes and bags are also on offer.
