ome of the best and least-expensive men’s and women’s clothing, household items, and furniture for sale in Boston are at Boomerangs, a thrift store whose merchandise is technically secondhand, but is in first-quality condition and often has never been worn. Ladies, check out the dress rack on the right as you enter the original Jamaica Plain location, where you’ll find beautiful gowns from name fashion labels for as little as $10. There are three other branches, and growing, including Boomerangs Special Edition, which brings secondhand designer and upscale merchandise and the likes of Prada, Marc Jacobs, Coach, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel to the South End. Even better: Profits go to the AIDS Action Committee. Vitale
