    Commonwealth Books: Antiquarian Books and Prints

    by atufft Written Aug 24, 2014

    Commonwealth Books has two locations within a block of each other downtown. It can be a little confusing going from one to the other, so ask for directions. But, both stores have a great collection of used books and prints. One store has a knowledgeable but curmudgeon like lady to provide help, while the other store, which is slightly larger, has several knowledgeable people who staff the store. You can walk your dog into the store, but one of the stores has a declawed cat that will keep watch over your pooch.

    What to buy: I have bought a collection of very nice 19th century color prints at reasonable cost, which I framed and gave as a gift. I have also bought antique books.

    What to pay: I usually keep my iPhone handy to compare prices of books found with national marketplace of used book sellers via Abesbooks.com or Biblio.com. Commonwealth is not a discount store.

    L A Burdick: Chocolates to die for!

    by CEP1863 Updated Oct 27, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I chanced upon this shop on my first visit to Boston last year. I was walking towards Harvard Square and noticed a display of chocolates for Halloween in coffin shaped boxes. The gifts that I purchased were very well received and so this year on my next trip to Boston I made sure that I returned.

    There is a huge variety of chocolate and staff are both knowledgeable and helpful. The chocolates are expensive but with chocolate I really believe that you get what you pay for. The taste of each chocolate is a wonderful sensation on the palate and you can really savour every chocolate. All in all they are perfect for that special gift.

    What to buy: They have some amazing Halloween chocolate ghosts - perfect gift for Halloween.

    What to pay: You can spend as much or as little as you like. Chocolates can be bought individually or in boxes.

    Brian Dugan - Made in Boston: Amazing array of original gifts

    by CEP1863 Written Oct 24, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I found this small booth inside the Prudential Centre. Brian Dugan is a glass artist and he has made all of the products tat are on sale. At the time I was there, it was the artists wife who was selling the products at the stall and she could tell us a lot about the different pieces on sale. There is a fantastic array of items for sale, all of which are hand made and unique. If you are looking for something original to take away from Boston then you could do no worse than stop here and see what is on offer.

    What to buy: Earrings and necklaces
    Bottle stoppers
    Small dishes

    What to pay: Earrings started at $24USD for a pair. Other items ranged in price depending upon the amount of work, materials and artists time that have gone into the making. At the time I was there, the stall did have a sale on which meant if you bought 4 items you got the cheapest free.

    by PupDawg Written Jan 22, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Polka Dog was inspired by a sato named Pearl from Puerto Rico (my 2 dogs are also satos). The make fresh baked dog treats in so many flavors it is hard to choose! There are specialty items such as jerky and chews as well. My dogs love the lamb jerky and peanut butter and jelly biscuits. They also offer a small boutique with beds, collars, leashes, toys, clothing and seasonal items and stock many brands of dog and cat food. Make sure you bring your dog, the staff is more than happy to let them sample the treats and choose what they like.

    What to buy: My dogs say - one of each! All of the treats have been a big hit with them.

    Ready to go in! So many choices Pick me up to see in the jars! Shopping Our treat stash!

    Filene's Basement: Filene's Basement

    by Krumlovgirl Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I love Filene's. I have never actually been in the REAL store, but I love the basement. It's always one of my highlights of going to Boston because I do love to shop. It's not for the faint of heart, though-it gets kind of crazy in there. Not very organized and hordes of people. And if you're not into sales (I have friends that refuse to shop sales because it's somehow demeaning of them) then it probably won't be for you. BUT, if you like heavily discounted clothes, jewlry, and chocolate then you should check it out.

    What to pay: They're supposed to mark down things every week but I think they sneak by on it and don't. For every week it's supposed to be marked down by 25%.

    Landmark Center: Art Deco Restoration in the Fens

    by vivalasteph Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In 2000, the Landmark Center reopened its doors to the public. Built in 1930, this massive Art Deco building was the former home of the Sears Warehouse and Catalog Center. It stood unoccupied, and decaying for years until bought by the Abbey Group, which restored it and adapted it to today's standards, with offices on the upper floors and retail stores on the ground floor. It has won several awards for historic preservation.

    It sits at the crossing of Park Drive, Boylston St., and Brookline Ave. and the Fenway T stop is right next to the parking lot.

    The upper floors house many businesses, including Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and the Harvard School of Public Health. There is also a day care facility.

    What to buy: Some of what you'll find here:

    The Art Store
    Staples
    Best Buy
    REI
    Bed, Bath, and Beyond
    Boston Sports Club
    Longhorn Grill
    AMC Theater - 13 screens, all with stadium seating

    Macy's: The serach is over.............

    by cjg1 Written Nov 15, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Macy's in Boston is typical of any city Macy's store. They carry a large selection of housewares, jewelry, shoes, clothing and cosmetics. Macy's wasn't on out list of places to go but we wound up here in search of an item for my wife.

    My wife has been hunting for the past three years for a hard to find shade of lipstick that she adores. After searching every store that carries the line it was miraculously here. The sales associate found three lipsticks in her desired shade and we bought all three. I was elated that we finally found what she was earching for so desperately.

    What to pay: The lipstick was $14 each.

    Harvard Coop: Stock up on books and Harvard kitsch

    by Tijavi Updated Apr 15, 2010

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beyond the typical kitschy Harvard souvenirs, Harvard Coop sells serious stuff like specialty books and the range is quite extensive. I could easily spend hours here - but wasn't in the mood to carry heavy hardbound books around with me. In case you need a caffeine fix or a hot drink on a cold autumn day - or just a shelter from the rain (my main reason for going here) - there is a Starbucks outlet inside that attracts students and tourists alike.

    by cjg1 Updated Jan 19, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lord & Taylor is a department store that carries men's clothing, women's clothing, children's clothing, cosmetics, housewares, jewelry, shoes and accesories.

    What started as a stop to use the restroom rurned into a shopping trip for me. There was an incredible winter sale going on at Lord & Taylor. While we wandered through the men's department; a jacket caught Liz's eye. The jacket was a nice brown suede. We found my size and I tried it on. The jacket fit perfectly and I like the style and material. The jacket was on sale at 50% off which was a steal; so of course I had to buy it.

    What to buy: I bought a nice brown suede jacket.

    What to pay: With the 50% off the tricket Price; I paid $175.

Many come to Boston to experience the famed Filene's Basement.  Unfortunately, that store has gone out of business, maybe to open again in the future, maybe not.  But do not despair....
