Vintage shopping: Cafe Society

Cafe Society


It’s a little off the beaten path. It’s not right along the T line. It’s not in a shopping center. But that’s part of the charm of Cafe Society in Brookline Hills. Cafe Society is a quaint vintage shop on Cypress St. that is worth making a visit to.

Cafe Society carries vintage clothes, purses, shoes, and jewelry primarily for women, but they also carry men’s and children’s vintage clothes. Just last weekend, I shopped at Cafe Society and bought a green/gray tweed blazer with brown buttons for only $25! It’s very menswear, and will look great with skinny jeans and heels. I also had my eyes on a blue floral dress with a bow collar and a yellow and gray dress – both very Mad Men.

What I like best about Cafe Society is the woman who works there (I’m assuming the owner). You know how it sometimes gets awkward when you walk into a store that’s not very busy and you feel like the person working there is watching your every move? Well this store is the opposite. I searched around the whole store and tried things on with no pressure at all. I was asked if I needed any help and when I responded that I was all set, I was happily on my own searching through the racks. For a low-key vintage shopping excursion, drive out to Cafe Society in Brookline Village and let me know what you find!
