The Salvation Army

Atlanta, Ga. 30318
(404) 523-6214
www.thesalvationarmyusa.org

Full of surprises, this Salvation Army doesn’t disappoint when it comes to quality furniture at a price you can afford. The staff here is also especially friendly. Clothing is also well organized, mainly in good condition and half off on Wednesdays.

Goodwill Industries of North Georgia

3337 Bulford Hwy NE
Atlanta, Ga. 30329
(678) 891-0100
www.goodwill.org

This Goodwill carries many designer brands and is well organized and clean, making it one of our favorite places to shop thrift. There is also a good book collection for $1 or less, picture frames ($1-$3), dinnerware ($1-$3) and Halloween costumes (various prices). This location also has the benefit of ample parking.

The Greenhouse

If you have a knack for refurbishing or reupholstering, this store may be for you. Greenhouse has a good selection of affordable, used, hardwood furniture with a corner devoted to apothecary jars, school bins, crates and old signs.

My Favorite Place

5596 Peachtree Industrial
Atlanta, Ga. 30341

Atlanta, Ga. 30341
(678) 209-0451

Find everything from automobile upholstery to cell phones to shiny pictures of The Last Supper at the Buford Highway Flea Market. You can bargain with the vendors if you’re up for a haggle.
