Where you should go shopping for Designs for shoes
The Turnabout Shoppe US
30 Grove St. Wellesley; (617)237-4450 A few years ago, Elaine Sugarman needed a little project to help cope with some health problems. Interested in fashion, she decided to open a clothing resale store; not only did it turn about her life, but it is turned into one of the finest such places Mr. Cheap has found in any city.
An 1869 woodframe house in downtown Wellesley gives the store extra charm. Wind your way through a series of small rooms on two floors: At the front is the couture room, filled with dazzling creations by Armani, Donna Karan, Karl Lagerfeld, jewelry by Chanel, and more. Turnabout specializes in upscale names, so the place is not inexpensive; but when you see a $350 Escada suit which originally cost $3,000, it is a bargain. And they are very fussy about what they take in, going only for clothes in fine condition.
The same approach is taken with Anne Klein suits, Joseph Abboud sweaters, Perry Ellis overcoats, leather jackets, like-new shoes, and unworn samples too. But, in the words of Elaine’s husband (and business partner) Herb Kutzman, There are no jeans here. Nor anything for men or kids, though that was attempted early on. Hey, when you are a hit with one thing, you stick with it How much of a hit? Women actually fly up from New York to spend a day shopping here. Sure, they’ll drop some heavy change; but, for a few hundred bucks, they’ll come away with an entire new wardrobe of eye-catching, unique looks. If you live around here, you can stay ahead of even these trendy folks. Open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Thursdays until 8.
