Are any of these stores near Marietta?

YES!!

There are antique/thrift/flea markets - one on Cobb Parkway in a shopping center across from the Big Chicken where Ken Stanton (music store)

There are tons of thrift stores up & down Roswell Road leading to the Square and IN the square...

<--- not thrift places... --->

String of Purls (knitting shop) in the Marietta Square

Dick Blick by the mall area off of Barrett Parkway

then there's the requisite Joann's & Michael's...

whenever you're in the area again, let me know! I don't knit, but I love shopping for stuff to use in my craftystuff.

Just an FYI, I drove by America's Thrift Store (on 29 and Pleasant Hill Road) a few days ago, and noticed it was completely empty and gone.  ;_; such an awesome store.

have any of you ATL thrift hounds noticed that the last chance at church and scott blvd in decatur ( the one with 1/2 off mondays ) seems to be way pricier and extremely depleted? i even went at 8:30 and it totally sucked! what's up with them? it used to be great.

My favorite America's Thrift store is on hwy 85 in Riverdale.  It's nice because there is a Salvation Army right down the street, and you aren't too far from a Last Chance (I think that's still the name...they changed it a couple of times) that's right next to Southlake Mall.  You can hit three great places in about 2 hours!

the Salvation Army Family Store on 78 in Snellville kicks some serious ass. I've thrifted a bunch of cute clothes, a gorgeous print in a great frame and tons of books!
 

I loved Park Avenue Thrift on 29 in Lilburn (across from the Kroger at Beaver Ruin) but saw that it was recently closed for good Sad

Does anybody know of any good, cheap thrift/vintage stores in the Marrietta/Kennesaw/Acworth area? The ones I've found on the Square are especially expensive, but have such darling things, especially furniture. It's all in wonderful shape, so that's probably why things are so pricey.

my moms theory is that the store is so close to emory that all the hipsters are taking everything

I will have to check out the Last Chance that adlib mentioned in Norcross!  I live off Buford Hwy in Doraville, and do the Goodwill, St. Vincent, Chamblee junk store rounds so I'll have to add it as well since we usually make it to the Norcross Goodwill pretty frequently!

I too love America's Thrift!  I recently moved from Alabama (went to college in Tuscaloosa) and there was one in Tuscaloosa and several in B'ham.  I have to say that I really miss the mega-thrift nature of it and the markdowns!  My complaint on Goodwill is that it's grouped by color making it impossible to find sizes and I hate that the clothes prices are all standard!  Ack!  Drives me crazy.
