As featured on Boston's CHRONICLE show "Recession Busting", we are a unique concept offering first-quality merchandise, samples, and irregulars of current brand-name department store women's apparel.

Our prices are so ridiculously low that we can only afford to be open for "special limited event weekends".

See below for the dates and times of our upcoming events at our main location (Winthrop, MA) as well as other roving locations in the Greater Boston and southern New Hampshire regions.

Clothes Encounters Main Location

This store serves as our headquarters. Hours and dates are subject to limited times throughout the year (like all of our events), but the location never changes. Check back often or join our mailing list to be be informed of the next event at our Winthrop, MA store.
