Our History 

Our History Second Time Around is a chain of upscale consignment boutiques that carries new and gently worn, high-end merchandise. With over 40 stores from Maine to Miami to Chicago, Second Time Around has come a long way since our flagship store opened over 40 years ago.

In 1973, we opened a small consignment shop just outside Boston, and we couldn't have imagined how big our little idea would become.

 By the 1980s, we were ready to expand. In 1990, we opened the first STA on Newbury Street, Boston's premier fashion destination. The company continued to grow exponentially, building the brand down the East Coast and into the Midwest. Today, Second Time Around boasts more than 50,000 active consignors and a cult-like following of loyal customers. Our stores are located in the chicest and most visited shopping locations in the U.S., from Boston's famous Newbury Street to trendy Soho in New York City to D.C.'s tony Georgetown neighborhood.
