Joe Ferraro and his secondhand showcase
Joe Ferraro is a lifelong Somerville guy. He lives in the house where he was raised, the same house his mother’s family moved into when she was 14. Somerville has gone through changes since his youth, but Ferraro’s not overly nostalgic. He thinks there’s an intersection between the city’s lingering working-class sensibility and its recent cultural renewal in his own passion: secondhand clothes. Ferraro’s twice-yearly secondhand showcase, the Top Shelf Flea Market, had its sixth installment on Sunday.
