for vintage kitchen wares, you might try the kudzu antique mall down on ponce near the dekalb farmers market. I don't know if it's what you're looking for, but I've seen some there and it's at least worth a look. Or the broad street antique mall in chamblee. You might not want to pay antique mall prices (bargains ARE half the fun), but you migth be surprised.

Another good place is Decatur Estates.  It's in the Big Lots/ Hancock Fabric shopping center where Scott Blvd. and N. Decatur cross. 

It's more upscale finds, but still some good bargains.  I've purchased a vintage coffee caraft and picnic basket there that I love.  Also, jewelry, gloves and hats are all decently priced.

Man, Savannah sucks. hehe You'd think suge a huge touristy town would have some cool thrift stores. But we don't. All tourists want are those (mostly) God-awful antique shoppes.


Yes, I go to SCAD.

Awesome! So you must live near or in Atlanta! I live in a very boring town not worth mentioning that is an hour from Atlanta (so I don't get to go there often). I've been wondering where all of the good thrifts were, so thanks for posting!

-- Just curious what direction your boring town is from Atlanta . . .\

Anyway, there's a good one in Riverdale at the shopping center with the IHOP on the corner of Bus. 85 & Hwy 138, and then a few more on up Bus 85 north, on the left.

I'm over in Augusta and all we pretty much have are a couple local goodwill's and salvation armies! If anyone knows of any other, slightly more exotic or interesting, thrift stores in or around my area let me know!

Oh and who ever said they lived near macon, I went in a salvation army there once and it was actually pretty kick ass, although in a bit of a rough area, well worth it though!

bump!  I need to go thrift shop hunting.  I live really close to the northern 75/85 split.  Anyone know of any hidden in this area?  There's a so-so to crappy Value Village in the shopping center at Moore's Mill & Bolton, if you don't mind the thug mammas and thug daddies.  They don't have many good housewares, but I've found some okay clothes there. 

Does it seem to anyone else that all the thrift stores here are WAY overpriced?  I hear about $2 furniture, like storage pieces or tables, not chairs or stools, from so many people on the www but I can never find anything like that.

There's a thrift store in the Kroger shopping center on Howell Mill.  They have some really upscale clothing donations, not so many housewares.

I'm visiting my parents in Marietta for the next 2 and a half weeks or so, with very little to do - I go to school in Wisconsin, and my parents moved here at the end of my freshman year of college. I don't know anyone but my family, and so I have nothing to do besides read, knit, and watch TV. Are any of these stores near Marietta? Because that would be tight. Thanks!!!

I just have a few words: nitwit, blubber, oddment, tweak.
