"That man is the richest whose pleasures are the cheapest" ... Henry David Thoreau
- Those pleasures were usually cheapest at the legendary Filene's Basement (some called Fellini's, in honor of the Italian film maker famous for crazy crowd events).
From their literature: "A walk through Filene's Basement is like a walk down Fifth Avenue ... because everywhere you look you'll see the same exclusive designer and prestigious store names you'd see in New York, Paris, London and Milan. But there's one big difference-at the Basement, you'll experience the thrill of unbelievable prices .
How do we do it? Our buyers shop for the best deals at the finest
design houses in Europe, choosing the latest fashion trends, fabrics and

price-savvy Basement customer.
