Legendary Capricorns


Happy birthday to two of the greatest – David Bowie & Elvis Presley!  Of course, the influence of these two men goes way beyond music (and film) – they are both style icons.  And here at The Garment District, style is always king!  You often can find both Elvis and Bowie-inspired garments in our Vintage and 1960’s/1970’s departments, and for those looking for an iconic rock costume, our sister store Boston Costume has tons of options!

The Garment District is turning 26!

We are so excited to reach this milestone.  Each year, we like to use the store’s birthday as a way to say thank you to our customers for helping us reach another year.  We’ll be having birthday cake at 2pm, and we’re raffling off five store gift cards at $20 each!  You can enter the raffle at any point on Saturday – we are open from 9am until 8pm. We will draw the winners on Monday, and then mail out the gift cards early next week.

We hope you can join us!

24th Birthday Celebration and Book Signing Event!

It’s our 24th birthday this week! Please celebrate with us this Saturday, March 27th. Starting at 9 a.m., we will have FREE pastries and coffee for everyone who drops by 200 Broadway in Cambridge, MA (while supplies last), and in the early afternoon we will have birthday cake and much more

This year Erica Perl, author of Vintage Veronica (a fiction novel inspired by her many years of consigning clothes at The Garment District), will be helping us celebrate The Garment District’s 24th birthday. Erica will be here from 1-3 p.m. signing copies of her newly published book! Erica will also read a passage or two from Vintage Veronica. We will also hold drawings for a signed copy of Vintage Veronica and Garment District gift cards. We are thrilled to have Erica joining us.

Every year we use The Garment District’s birthday to thank our customers for being so great and helping us to reach another milestone. We hope that you have the time to drop by and join us this Saturday.
