  • Oona's: Vintage Clothing

    by Alcinoe Updated Jan 8, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    by sarahandgareth Written Jun 23, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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!

    This shop is an excellent place to browse. The floorspace is HUGE with racks and racks of clothing everywhere! There's are sections for men, women, & children. Contempory clothing, vintage clothing, & local designers are in their own space. Racks are labeled (skirts, gowns, prom dresses, suits, coats, jeans etc) & are color coordinated.

    What to buy: With over 40,000 pieces of clothing, you are bound to find something you like. They have vintage clothing from the 1940s and up. Handbags & linens. Shoes are downstairs.
    They also have a "Dollar-a-Pound" store downstairs where all the clothes you buy there is weighed & you pay only $1/lb. What a deal!!

    What to pay: Prices vary
