What you'll do

Together we will establish a style profile based on your personal wardrobe & note any specific looks/pieces you are hoping to take home during your stay. We will coordinate your ideal shopping excursion while we indulge in a true taste of New England. We will hunt through vintage, second hand, antique & thrifted looks on our treasure hunt at some of my favorite spots for stunning pieces and one-of-a-kind finds. Right outside of Boston and a short train ride in one of the suburbs most charming neighborhoods we will shop through some of New Englands best kept second hand secrets.
Our shopping experience stretches down the historic streets of Waltham, better known as "Watch City", which also offers some local art studios/boutiques, a quaint river walk, museums, cafes and a variety of award winning shops & dining if you're looking to stretch your stay while in the area.
While shopping we will style different looks and photograph the experience to share either on social media or with friends & family back home!
Book a shopping trip on Friday Or Saturday and ask about visiting local markets with vendors featuring secondhand, locally made goods and vintage treasures!
Other things to note
Wear comfy shoes! I'm open to taking photos of our finds along the way too so feel free to sport your trendiest travel gear & let me know when to snap some shots for social media. I love documenting:)

I earned my degree in Fashion concentrated Communications & focused on building an identity, networking & making a name for myself as the Content Coordinator at a charming bar I still remain a few nights a week. I created an online shop paired with a journey on Instagram, Secondhandfirstplace. For the past 5 years, I have traveled all over New England to discover its best-kept secrets for vintage clothing and rare second-hand finds while meeting some charming fellow fashion lovers along the way. When I am not on the hunt I am in the city working at one of our stops & I take great pride in knowing with careful selection, another vintage loving, collector of all things precious and quite frankly badass will find this shopping&styling session, trust the creative process & book a date without thinking twice about it.

It was an amazing experience! Jules is great. We had a lot to talk about and she showed me great places I would have never found without her. I left with some great items I can't wait to wear! She understood what I was looking for and helped me a lot! Love it! Thank you so much!!!

Since I was staying in Boston for a week, my mum booked this experience for me. Julianne is open and friendly, so we straight away found many things to talk about. Without asking me any questions, she immediately understood my style and started grabbing so many pieces that I loved. In fact she was the one who found most of the clothes that I then bought. She brought me to the shops which she knew had the style of clothes I was looking for and completely nailed it. I would highly recommend going with an experienced person on a thrift hunt since most shops are full of clothes and it can be difficult to spot the desired ones among all the others. I can’t wait to go back to Boston to spend another day with Julianne!

Julianne was great!! We were unable to make the scheduled date, but she was very flexible in arranging a different date for us. Sadly I had to leave the next day, but I definitely plan on thrifting with Julianne next time I’m in Boston.

We met up with Julianne in the town of Waltham with some amazing spots! She had never had a group larger than 2 before but handled 4 so well! She knew everyone’s sizes/styles and right off the bat grabbed pieces that I loved! We scored on some designer stuff I couldn’t pass up, and pieces that I was specifically looking for I was surprised to find or she found. She obviously knows what she’s doing. I can’t wait to put together some looks to show her! Thanks so much Julianne!!
