Where you should go shopping for European designer shoes
TANI The Leather Outlet Boston
â¢ 243 Washington St. Boston; (617)973-4884
A small storefront in Downtown Crossing, TANI is filled with everything from the tiniest handbag to the most oversized duffel. It’s all crammed in higgledy-piggledy, but that adds to the bargain-hunting fun. Leather backpacks, originally $220, sell here for $189. A straw and leather handbag, retail price $41, was seen for $36. Great deals on luggage, too: A wheeled weekender, the sort flight attendants use, was found for $50 off the retail price.
Regular sales lead to even bigger markdowns. At a recent sale, Mr. C found a straw tote bag for $19.90, down from the original $39 just in time for summer beach-going. TANI also carries plenty of organizers and accessories, including Filofax, wallets, checkbook holders, and the rest. Open seven days.
