Shopping: Little Five Points Atlanta, Georgia Vintage and New

As you may be able to tell, no trip of mine is ever complete without a shopping detour. While in Atlanta for my family reunion, after having seen all of the remarkable historic but usual tourist stops (MLK's Ebenezer Baptist Church and MLK's casket site) I revisited one of Atlanta's best kept secrets: Little Five Points. Most of my conventional shopping family members did not know about Little Five Points until being enlightened by moi! A few were pleasantly surprised and delighted to join me on my jaunt, but others, the more timid, shied away. Here's what we found! Note: After spending three hours walking up and down Moreland Ave, I, shopper of the millennium, had not been tempted to buy ONE THING! I think I was just tired and hungry (never stopped me before),  but not the recommended way to start a shopping trip. Enjoy my Little Five Points pictography!

The Vortex restaurant was the perfect landmark and beginning point for us. I heard the burgers are great!
Thrift store/costume shop/ & anything else obscure they can get away with selling!
What an immense space!
Costume Shop
Cute duck print skirt that can even be worn to work.
My fashion sister entering Wish Boutique: Men and Women's On-trend Fashion
Aztec prints and mixed fabric garments are ready for any summer music festival!
Funky print sneakers atop faux book shelves.
Jumpsuits and body con dresses perfect for a night of club hopping.
Or this fab floral dress that can be worn to brunch and/or during a shopping trip! This little number was $25 on sale! Disclaimer: The chain strap broke the next morning and she had to fix it herself (No refunds on sale items).
Thrift Store with great low prices!
From The Clothing Warehouse, a chain thrift/vintage store on the corner of Euclid and Moreland Ave. I loved this dress but would have had to have it altered-no bueno. Plus, it was around $40 and I don't spend more than $25 on any non-leather/fur item in a thrift store-period.

  1. What attracted me to your blog was the pictures I really like the dresses but I totally loved the printed sneakers they look ao funky and the jump suits they look so trendy that comes with comfort.
