YOUR PICKS

1. Attic Treasures/Assistance League of Atlanta (Chamblee)
You say, “Attic Treasures Thrift Store in Chamblee is the best kept secret around. Friendly volunteer staff, great merchandise, and weekly special sales. All proceeds go back into the community – to help children and adults in need.”
2. Value Village (many locations)
3. Goodwill (many locations)
4. Cherokee County Humane Society Thrift Store (Acworth)
5. America’s Thrift Store (Marietta and Riverdale)

You can fill up your cart for modest amount of cash at Value Village, as Rebeccah Karanja did on one of the shop's bargain days back in 2008.

OUR PICKS

1. Value Village
The AJC’s Atlanta Bargain Hunter Lauren Davidson says, “Value Village, which has locations all over Atlanta, is exactly what a thrift store should be. Not only are the prices the cheapest, but the regular sales mean even shopping for furniture and jewelry can be a pleasure. Walk in at the right time and you can score expensive vintage clothing and accessories for pocket change. Who doesn’t love that?”

I’m a Thrift Store Junky for sure, when I score, it has a profound affect on my being and I’m hooked. There are many good ones, but it seems like one has the best clothes, one has the best furniture or the best housewares. And the location is not that important either. Even though it’s been kinda slow these days, I have scored legiondary finds, how appropriate, at THE STEP UP SOCIETY on Monroe and Ponce. Rumor has it one patron scored a painting and sold it for $25,000.00!! LOVE IT!!

Value Village thrift stores are the best that I have found..Can’t stnad the Goodwill stores..They are way over priced for a lot of stuff and they will not change a price for you..Might have to try the Step Up Society mentioned by the first poster..

America’s Thrift Store on Canton Hwy. in Marietta. If you are looking for clothes, they generally have a great collection, and actually sort by size instead of color. They don’t try to rip you off on used goods like Goodwill does. And the best part is, if children are running around the store out of control, the manager will actually get on the intercom and chew out the failing parents.

Definitely Bob and Arthur’s in East Atlanta Village. Not a huge store but all the stuff is top notch. Bob is like a modern day treasure hunter and Arthur has a playful curiosity that is so much fun! A real treasure.

I have been in all the stores already mentioned. They all have their own good things and bad. But the top of the line has to be Value Village. They don’t overcharge and have a great merchandise.

Dollar Thrift run by Liberty Church on Sandy Plains Road just past Sprayberry High School behind the Burger King.

Other Favs: Wellspring located on Barrett Pkwy – just got started, but it is great.

The BEST – the Jr. Leaque Thrift Store that’s on Howell Mill. That place ROCKS!

The Step Up Society is the best. Sometimes great furniture. Merchandise moves fast, some items overpriced, but many underpriced. I bought a lovely crystal Steuben eagle there last year for $3.99. Steuben sells that same eagle on their website for $1,000. Best deal ever!

I agree that America’s Thrift Store and Value Village are the best thrift stores. They have reasonable prices and decent items for sale. I also agree that Goodwill is a rip-off. They charge too much. I think they charge almost $7 for a woman’s shirt, even t-shirts. I can find brand new tops for that much on sale at places like Target.

I shop a whole lot of thrift stores and I have to say for a great selection having four children, Value Village definitely gets my vote. I’ve been in Goodwill stores and I’ve got to dig and nothing is clearly marked. I feel if anyone wants great prices in an ORGANIZED environment I would strongly suggest Value Village! Let’s not for get that once a month sale they have where just about about everything is HALF OFF!! I mean WOW half off the already well priced merchandise, you just can’t go wrong!!

The best thrift store is Value Village, especially the one in Riverdale. I find new items all the time for $2.29-$4.59. That store in particular is the lowest priced one of all the Value Villages, I think it’s because of the income of the area, but I don’t care. I drive over 20 miles to go to that store.
My family always ask where do I get my clothing, and when I tell them, they don’t believe me. I don’t think that it’s a secret anymore though, as when I look a the tags in the parking lot, it’s from all over metro Atlanta. Great place for a real deal, or should I say steal.

I don’t care for a thrift with all clothes, I don’t buy them but Clothes Less Traveled” on HWY 74 in Peachtree City has an equal mix of everything. It’s so big that it’s in a warehouse and everything is sorted and put in the section it goes in, appliances, furniture, books and music, clothing, toys, etc.

Well I shop at Thrift Stores. Honestly, Goodwill is where I have found my best name brand items for cheap. I agree Goodwill could do better with their pricing but I have found Michael Kors, Guess, Banana Republic, Jos. A Bank and many other name brands sometime at half off of the Goodwill price so that is like pennies on the original price. My favorite thrift store is The Bargin Shop on Main Street in East Point. It isn’t the merchandise but the vibe of thirft shopping.

Hey Folks, Please lighten up on the Goodwill bash. There mission is to help people earn a living, improve their lives, and strengthen their families and their communities, not to be the cheapest thrift store in town. That extra buck or two is going to a good cause, not just padding someone’s pockets.

There’s a NEW thrift store in Avondale Estates that gives a portion of their net proceeds to four non-profit organizations that have missions that involve rescuing animals.
‘Second Life’ is on North Clarendon Ave. It’s a bit more upscale than a Value Village. They also accept donations and volunteers to help out.

Goodwill might charge a little more for their merchandise, but they are clean and organized. (I like to look at the racks with the clothing sorted by colors and the rainbow effect!) American’s Thrift on Canton Hwy has rock bottom prices and some good finds tucked in there. But they have more actual GARBAGE on their shelves. Stuff like plastic cups from fast food restaurants. (really!) Goodwill has a slightly higher standard for their merchandise I think. Just depends on what you’re looking for, I guess.

I used to be a Value Village junkie until I went to the Goodwill Store. Value Village might be slightly cheaper but their stuff is usually junk or overly worn/outdated. I scored a pair of like new softball cleats for my daughter just last week at our Goodwill for $2.60.
I won’t tell you where my Goodwill is because I WANT to keep it a secret :)

Nearly New on Howell Mill! Clothes are donated by Junior League members, so high end items at great prices. Also, the store generates more than $1 mil in revenue that is ALL donated back to the community. I volunteer there, and last week saw a pair of Manolos for $20. And items are sorted by size AND color!

The Step Up Society! As a previous poster pointed out, the merchandise moves very fast! I have scored some amazing antique furniture for less than $50, REI sleeping pads for 5$, and a Marc Jacob’s PanAm bag for $5. The Step Up Society isn’t clean and sparkly like a Goodwill but the treasures are worth it.

VALUE VILLAGE! Is the clear winner,clean,huge selection,customer service,daily half price tags 50% off,quality for the low prices…..”A clear cut above the rest” and Goodwill Stores are way overpriced….clue : to the inexperienced shopper…everything’s quality is not the same price, at Goodwill they believe it is!! Every piece on the item rack is not 7.99 worth…And David (previous)…they are very much for profit and they do pay all their employees..probably well based on their pricing! Value Village is the clear winner for my buck…! I live in the Roswell/Marietta/Kennesaw area and access two of the VV.locations …only hope is that they put up more in this northern area of town!

Value Village is the best thrift store in Atlanta hands down! What sets them apart from all the other thrift stores, other than price, would be the bright clean environment! They always have a huge selection of merchandise and a large portion of it is brand new! They sell brand new furniture, the same things they sell at Haverty’s and Big Lots, for a fraction of the price! If you’re really looking for a bargain, then you need to shop Value Village on the last Wednesday of every month for their giant sale on already low prices! As if it couldn’t get any better, the clothing that has been out for a week are marked down 50% as well! How could you go wrong in any of their multiple locations??

Several of the bug name thrift stores are for good causes and Value Village is definitely one of them! They work with the American Kidney Fund! I noticed that they recently got a Facebook too so you can see what unique items are at what store!

I could go on for days about how much I love these stores, but I think my vote is clear: VALUE VILLAGE RULES!

I agree that VALUE VILLAGE is the best thrift store to go to. I have been shopping thrift stores for a long time and when i visited the VALUE VILLAGE on Cobb Pkwy in Marietta, I was BLOWN AWAY! The customer service they provided was excellent, the store is beautiful, clean, organized, great prices and over all the experience was so great that i have been shopping their for the last 6 years. They have NEW Furniture at a very low price. I was shopping for a bedroom set for my daughter and found that it was very expensive at regular furniture stores like rooms to go, ashley furniture so I went to the Value Village on Cobb Pkwy and found the same bedroom set for more then $300 cheaper then big lots, ashley furnitures and other furniture stores. Thanks to Value Village for saving me money!

I think that Value Village is by far has the best Thrift Store around, not only for their great prices but for selection. Compared to Goodwill locations that look to be as large from the outside, Value Village has twice the square footage of selection on the inside.

And do your research, Goodwill gets government subsidies of 4 Million dollars a year, that’s our tax dollars, and they don’t hire the people they are supposed to be rehabilitating. There was a time when all of the stores were using employees in rehabilitation, but not any more. Maybe that’s why their prices are now so high!

My vote is for Value Village by far. No other store has the same selection of, well, everything! I bought a practically new yamaha hdmi A/V receiver for only 20 bucks. If I had gone to best buy or another retail store, it would have been at least $500. Even on ebay they were still going for over $300. Value Village also tags all their mens pants with a size, making it so much easier to find what I’m looking for. The staff at my favorite one is really friendly, and it’s always great to talk to any of their managers. Value Village is awesome! (Especially the one in Forest Park, but don’t tell everyone!)

Me and my mom have been to several in the Gwinnett area…I think our favs are: the Goodwill at Hamilton Mill in Dacula (or is that considered Buford?) We always find brand name clothes, gently worn or brand new NICE shoes and purses. Their housewares aren’t bad either. And it’s just a nice, clean store (it’s also pretty new). Other ones: Best Thrift Store on Spalding Dr in Norcross – nice stuff and the staff are very friendly, & the Salvation Army in Duluth across from Sams Club on Venture Dr.

I usually go to Goodwill due to the overabundance of them in my area. However, they play such a con game with their color of the week. The color changes Sunday (half price), and their employees are picking all that stuff off the shelves and racks so fast that you couldn’t get a deal if you wanted. Their prices have also been increasing steadily.

I agree with JD. Unclaimed Baggage in Scottsboro, Alabama is THE absolute BEST place for thrifty shopping. Many times you will score brand new stuff at half the retail price or less.

I really like Value Village. Most of their stuff is priced low and the clothes are uber-organized. I can scan the kids’ racks in a minute or two and get exactly what I need. Goodwill is mostly over-priced and their employees can be pretty rude. I get into my local Value Village about 5 times a week and the local Goodwill once every two weeks.

I LOVE the Goodwill in Woodstock on Hwy. 92 and have scored some mad deals there. They are clean and well organized, the staff is friendly, helpful and speaks English. I once found an Indiana Jones Stetson there and paid $2.62 for it – sold it on ebay for $50.00! Park Avenue Thrift on 92 and Bells Ferry is good for their 50% off coupons, but hardly any of their staff speaks English and there are some good clothes, but also is a lot of junk there-never any good furniture.

The best for value for me is the Last Chance Thrift store in Decatur. Half priced Mondays allowed me to clothe three children for the school year for $100. Been going there for over10 years. They have alot of name brands that my children like. I buy mainly the name brands as well as T-shirts for my teenager. As with any thrift store you have to go there alot and will find some good deals. The baby clothes and childrens’ clothes are the best deals.

I absolutely agree that Value Village is the best. Their selection is consistently fantastic (even in other states). Has anyone checked out Park Ave Thrift? It’s my second choice, and I’ve purchased Coach, Ralph Lauren, Nine West, and Calvin Klein for less than $5/each several times. And if you spent $10 during the week, you can save more when you come back on Sunday. They also publish coupons and have a mailing list. Most of the stuff I’ve bought there had the original tag still on it! Goodwill depends on the area – I know of 2 that are really nasty (just walking in the door makes me wish for Lysol), but there are 3 others nearby that have stylish designer items from Michael Kors, Kenneth Cole, DKNY. Sorry, the locations are top secret! I won’t even mention the nasty ones because you’ll figure out where the good ones are.

Someone mentioned the second-hand store in Woodstock on Rt. 92 called Revive. I agree that it has a good mix of items including furniture, knicknacks, and clothing. Also, in the same shopping center is Restore, owned by the same non-profit group. Please do check it out. Prices are marked down according to a schedule and get lower as time goes by.

Re: Goodwill. I just moved here from out of state, and am not familiar yet with the area. I stopped at a Goodwill dropoff office on Rt. 92 late this afternoon near T J Maxx and Target. Had some clothing in my car that I wanted to donate. The young man in the store berated me because I wanted a receipt for tax purposes. He said to me, I donate things and never ask for a receipt. Just giving is reward enough. I had tried to pay the Goodwill store a compliment by mentioning to him that it was so convenient to have a dropoff office in the shopping center. He sneered at me, telling me that there were dropoff bins all over town. I said, Yes, I have seen them, but they do not provide a receipt for tax purposes. That is what set him off. He insinuated that I was a horrible person to want a receipt.
I agreed that I was, and walked out. Too bad he does not have any manners, and is belligerent and hostile to people who are just trying to help. Is there a Salvation Army donation center anyhere?

Goodwill hires Spanish people who do not speak English. Their motto is the money is ‘we are helping to put people to work’. Non-American, non-English speaking people. Nathan Deal is going to send all of Goodwill’s staff back to Mexico!

If you’re reading this Value Village, VHS movies shouldn’t be $2.02–Goodwill sells them for $1.00. And your shoes are too expensive–again Goodwill has them for cheaper (especially kid shoes). You price a lot of the misc stuff too high. That’s why my VV has like 15 diaper bins for $4.00.

There’s two I love in Buford. First, the Buford Thrift Shoppe on Wiley Drive. They have everything, and nothing is over priced. I’ve bought designer clothes and shoes for a couple of bucks. Second, the Goodwill store on Nelson Brogdon Boulevard. Okay, so they get higher prices for their stuff, but so what? I’d rather pay 5 or 6 bucks than a 100 for a pair of designer jeans.

Not sure if this has been mentioned, but the Value Village in Buford doesn’t have dressing rooms. Is this the case in the rest of them? I don’t know about most people, but I HAVE to try something on before I buy it. And at Goodwill there are no returns.

Thank you Tooth for telling me where Bob and Arthurs is…

Lisa..Don’t think an of the Value Villages have a dressing room, but they will let you return (clothing) within 7 days with the tags still on them and the receipt..You don’t get your money back, they give you an in store credit that has to be used the day of the return..Goodwill has a dressing room, but as you said, no returns..

Cherokee County Humane Society Thrift Store is the BEST! Not only do they have great items for sale, but all proceeds goes back into saving animals lives! They help sponsor many low cost spay/neuter and vaccine clinics as well as house homeless cats at the store for adoption. On the weekends the host pet adoptions. I would like to see another thrift store top that!

Cherokee Humane Society Thrift Store located at 5900 Bells Ferry Rd, Acworth, 30102. Half mile North of Hwy 92.

Behind the Thrift Store is a BARK PARK, a calm enclave for humans and critters alike. The BP is about 1.5 acres and enclosed by a 6 foot wooden fence. They also have 5 gardens on site that produced 100 bushels of tomatoes and vegetables last year.

They also sponsor discount shot clinics and have mobile CatSnip spay/neuter clinics. If you’re an animal lover and like a good thrift store I would pick this one.

dollar thrift, Revive and America’s Thrift gets my vote. Some days are better than others but I like how America’s thrift is organized and the employees are always cheerful and helpful. I’ve bought several peices of furniture from there plus most of my families wardrobe came from there. Last time I bought my son jeans from Target they wanted $18 and the zipper broke the first week. I can go to America’s Trift and get him a pair of name brand jeans for $2-4 and they are still wearable and look great.

I love Thrift Stores and shop them all the time. But none can surpass the Cherokee Humane Society Thirft Store. Clean and neat. Also have kittens and cats for adoption that have been “dropped off” at the store. Last summer they found four kittens near death stuffed in a box outside their door. It that was completely taped up so the kittens had no air. They rescued them, vaccinated, altered, and now they are living happily ever after in loving homes. Can’t think of a better cause, nor a better way to support the millions of animals that are killed each year in the shelters. They also have an awesome auction in the Fall. If you haven’t shopped them you are missing a great place at 5900 Bells Ferry Road.

They work very hard and are a credit to the community.

I have been associated with Mr. Ottis Moore and the Cherokee County Humane Society for quite a few years, both as a volunteer and a “customer”. The Cherokee County Humane Society’s thrift store has to be one of the best in the metro area. The personnel there are very friendly and helpful. The store has a huge variety of merchandise to chose from and they will deliver and pick up furniture, working appliances and construction materials seven days a week. They even accept old cars, trucks, cycles, pianos whether working or not and proudly provide a tax deductible receipt. And to help with the pet population they also frequently sponsor discount shot clinics and mobile CatSnip spay/neuter clinics. The CCHS thrift store address is 5900 Bells Ferry Rd, Acworth, 30102.

My vote is for the Cherokee County Humane Society Thrift Store. Not only can you find great deals on everything from clothes to furniture to pet items and books, but all proceeds go to the adoption program and spay neuter program. They find homes for stray and unwanted dogs and cats in Cherokee County and even from the surrounding counties. Its help for those who cannot help themselves.

CLOTHING LESS TRAVELED in Peachtree City Georgia! All I can say is WOW!!! Name brand adult and children’s clothing, very well displayed and grouped not only by sizes but by color as well. This makes for quick shopping and a fun adventure for sure. I love the furniture section that is constantly changing, though there is a small amount of “space” for the furniture they have so many pieces lined up just right. Dishes, glassware, kitchen, electronics, toys, books are all in very good condition and easy to see. Shopping cart make buying a breeze. The store is mostly manned by volunteers who are so kind, and helpful. I vote this the best Thrift Store in Atlanta hands down! Don’t miss it if you are in town, worth your time for sure!

The Cherokee Co Humane Society Thirft Store on Bells Ferry Rd Acworth is by far the best place to look for so many goodies – and so well kept and personnel who actually help out!!
The plus on buying there: proceeds go to the medical/vet bills for the doggies and kitties – spaying/neutering and any other medical they need – and while you shop you can visit w/the kitties that stay there during the week :)

I also agree that Value Village is the best, especially the ones in Roswell, Marietta, and Buford. I do like the Goodwills in Marietta, Buckhead, Sandy Springs, Roswell, and on Buford Hwy, however. I’ve gotten some good deals there. At the Roswell Goodwill, I got both a Turnbull & Asser (British) dress shirt (french cuffed) for a little over $4. They are $250+ new. I also got a Simms Fly Fishing jacket for a little over $4. It is also $250 new. I’ve gotten more deals on dress pants at Value Village because it is simpler to shop there. They staple at least the listed size on the outside of the pants which doesn’t require you to look inside each pair of pants to check their size, as you HAVE to do at Goodwill. Yes, Goodwill stores are cleaner and not as cluttered- possibly because they have more staff, but Value Village is where the deals are normally.

It is clean and you don’t have to rummage much to find a great deal. It doesn’t have that smell that a lot of stores have since they don’t put out dirty clothes. You also can find wonderful housewares, fine china and an amazing amount of childrens clothes. It’s my go to store every Tuesday morning!

We have been going for years..before it was”chic” to go!! My husband gets his work pants @ the Goodwill stores here in Kennesaw & Woodstock; they are cheap & if they get too dirty, greasy or wear out we have not spend a lot of $ on them. I go to find “antiques”…I have bought quite a bit of antiques over the years….furniture, glass wares, pictures & I have bought a few wool coats as well. Even have my Mother & sister going to their Goodwill store in Sandy Springs..they have bought designer clothes, antique paintings & some china pieces. I have recently been buying up Christmas ornaments…some very, very old & old hard back books, some 1st additions. Just have to go & really look at everything…never know what you will find.

Choosing between America’s Thrift Store and Value Village is tough Goodwill is definitely not on the top of my list. I also enjoy going to the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store, they are a chain of thrift stores like the others but they have amazing clothes and accessories for unbelievable deals and they are never crowded. They are truly in it for the donations and for the amount of money I pay for so much stuff I always make sure to give them a few extra dollars when I leave.

I went to another thrift store on Canton HWY in Marietta, one Sunday not knowing it was closed. I found a new shop that had only been open a month called ValMart. I am now a frequent shopper. The clothing is great quality, major designer names, unreal prices, and they actually were steaming things they put out. My 3 year old son now has more clothes than he can ever wear, but I can’t help it when I get Polo, Fubu, Rothchild, and other’s I would not buy for a child at very cheap prices. And my grandaughter has become an addict too. She is going into fashion design and has put together some unbelieveable outfits that her friends offer to buy from her. If you have a teenage daughter this is a great place to shop. I am a thrift shop junkie and have the clothes to prove it.

Hey, I went to that Val Mart place yesterday and found 7 Jeans and Appplebtooms, to fit me in size 1/2 that I can afford. They were just putting them out and I snatched up all 4 pair and 3 sweaters. Do you know if they have a sale day like Value Village does?

Then the thrift store in the old KMart shopping center on 41, next Value Village on 41, Goodwill on Roswell Rd, Value Village on Alpharetta, then ValMart, American Family, Bargain City and the down Sandy Plains to Liberty. If there are any in that route I am missing please post them?

Attic Treasures in Chamblee gets my vote. Great selection at super low prices, a happy and helpful staff, and the money I spend there goes right back into the community. It’s a really well organized little shop and has the best variety of books around. (There’s a special book sale this week.) And when I’m finished reading it or wearing it, I can donate it at the back door to help raise even more money for the Assistance League programs.

Tucker Closeouts has the most unbelievable finds. Pam, the owner, buys new items at auction and resells at extraordinarily low prices. The store is overflowing with an amazing array of products.

I found a Fallen Angel costume http://www.gigaweb.com/products/view/30558/fallen-angel.html that lists for around $150 for $15. The dress is a knockout. I cannot wait for DragonCon to show this off.

It is just fun to go there and browse all the cool things they have. It is especially good for holiday items. The people that work there are all very friendly and helpful.

The store is located at 2151 Idlewood Road in Tucker across from Tucker Middle School about a third of a mile off Lawrenceville Highway.

Assistance of Atlanta’s Attic Treasures Thrift Shop is staffed completely by volunteers. There is no paid help, so almost all of the proceeds are funneled directly back in their programs.

Cherokee Humane Society Thrift Store – 5900 Bells Ferry Rd. Acworth – they p/u and deliver,

The Cherokee County Humane Society Thrift Store at 5900 Bells Ferry Road, Acworth, GA 30102 is the BEST! The store is clean, neat, and organized. Everyone that works there is friendly and very helpful. We always donate items to this wonderful organization. We cannot think of any other thrift store that we would even consider donating to. Every time that we go in there we always find at least one great thing to purchase. This place is really great and it is constantly changing. Just for your information, if you see it – buy it, because it won’t last very long! Everything that they do is for the benefit of the animals. How fabulous is that? They offer low cost vaccinations, spay/neuter clinics, adoptions, tags, bark park, a garden of fresh veggies, and a yearly auction fund raiser that is second to none. It has just a wonderful array of ever changing “stuff”. Don’t miss a fun outing and a really worthy trip of shopping. Our family can’t say enough in regard to all that they have done for us. And, lets not forget what the most important thing of all is, the little “beating hearts” that never miss a beat because of their dedication and sincere love for what they do. Hats off to Ottis & Irene Moore, Sherri R., Sherri D., Barb, Autrey, Bonnie & hubbie, Brian and the rest of the staff. Thanks a million y’all!
