Oona's: Vintage Clothing
Oona's sells vintage clothing, hats, jewelry and accessoriesfor both men and women. It is an interesting store, worth visiting even if you don't plan to buy anything. Some of the clothes are quite lovely, but you can also find very low-priced items, especially on the outside racks. This store has been here forever and has become one of our beloved Cambridge institutions.
Cardullo's Gourmet Shoppe: Gourmet foods at Harvard
Cardullo’s is a real Harvard Square institution, the place to get some odd-ball Swedish cracker, the chocolate you crave from England, an exotic tea combination or some of the best olives in the area. The stock has grown to fill every corner of the store, and the aisles are made for the fairly slim (ironically, given the rich products that are to be found hiding un there). You might have to search around for a while to get exactly what you want, but you can be sure you’ll find at least five other things you desperately need along the way. They also do exceptionally tasty sandwiches, stacked full of the deli ingredients arrayed along one side of the store; you’ll have to cart your masterpiece away, however, unless you manage, in the nicer weather, to snag one of the two outdoor tables.
You can search their website to see if they have what you want!
