Nestled away on Brattle Street in Harvard Square is a great boutique that opened in 2008 and has remained one of my local favorites – Passport. Passport owner Jessica Good stocks the shop with accessories, luggage and comfy, practical clothing for women on the go (literally!). From fresh cotton tees from Vince and Three Dots to fantastic carry-all bags from MZ Wallace, you can get stylish and plane ready in an instant by stepping foot indoors. The sad news? After three years Passport is closing its doors at the end of the month. Although she hopes to open a new location towards the end of 2011, there are no guarantees. For the next few weeks you can get 25% off everything in the store so definitely pop in.
Although Passport is closing, you can still shop online for some of the great brands it carries. Here are some of my favorites:
A reminder to all my readers to hit the streets and shop local when you can. Small business is critical to keeping the diverse fabric of our communities in tact.
