BEST SPOTS: Neighborhood Thrift Stores

BEST SPOTS: Neighborhood Thrift Stores

MABLETON, Ga. -- For this week’s installment of Best Spots, we've compiled a list of Neighborhood Thrift Stores for you to purchase some eccentric and timeless pieces.

In today’s economy, it’s important for shoppers to get the most bang for their buck and the thrift store is where you can do that. Open your mind fashionistas and fashionmistas, the thrift store isn’t only for those in need.

According to some thrifters, this store is good for vintage home goods. The Smyrna Thrift Store is a good place to find affordable clothes, if you can get past the new furniture in the front of the store. The store is across the street from a Goodwill store but shoppers say Smyrna Thrift has the better deals. The store is located at 3150 South Cobb Drive in Atlanta.

Home of the “finest selection of used clothing in Atlanta” Last Chance Thrift Store is one of the largest thrift stores in the area.

How To: Mix Prints (the right way)

How To: Mix Prints (the right way)

Flowers, lace, and animal prints are all the rage this summer. It’s time to stuff the monochromatic outfit in the closet. But how to rock this style without looking like Bozo ain’t easy.

Instructions

  1. Mix big prints with small prints. To be chic without looking overdone, wear a large dramatic print with a smaller, more subdued print. This usually works best when the small print is worn on the bottom. If you have a top with a large dramatic pattern, pair it with a skirt with a very small repetitive pattern. Two large, contrasting prints is usually fashion overkill.
