Boston Globe's Daily Shopping Tip

Every Prada tells a story

When we buy something at Second Time Around, we like to create a story about who owned the designer clothes before us: Did a Beacon Hill matron donate a million bucks to charity while wearing the Chanel sweater? Did a Broadway dancer wear the Prada shoes? For 35 years, the store has been selling gently worn designer labels, and it's celebrating with refreshments today at the Newbury Street store and a sale in all four locations through Sunday. If you spend $100 or more, you could win a $500 gift certificate and the use of a car for 48 hours. Second Time Around, 176 Newbury St., 617-247-3504 . secondtimeareound.net
