The Barn is a Zoo

West Newton has a secret shoe store called The Barn. It's off Washington Street, near the old National Guard Armory and Trader Joe's. And it's great -- the people there know their shoes and you can get some good deals. (see Borderline's review from last year).

But Borderline wandered in there last week and found that The Barn had become a zoo. The lot was full, and it was tough to get help. The reason? Back to school. Everyone takes their kids down there not only for school shoes, but also athletics -- they sell soccer cleats, balls, shin guards, running shoes, and everything else for the Fall sports season.

ARE YOU NUTS? Do not tell people about the Barn. Do not ever tell anyone about the Barn. It's a top secret secret. You think it was crowded before? Now what is it going to be like.

How can it be a zoo and also secret? The Barn is a Newton treasure, but it's hardly a secret.

Well, it's a secret for people not from here.

Ooops! Cat's out of the bag!
