Where To Shop Atlanta Pt. 2 (Guest Post)

Hey Y'all! Happy Thanksgiving week! If you're like me, you are carefully straddling the line between Christmas and Thanksgiving. I'm so excited about turkey and football day, but I also can't stop thinking about Christmas presents and joy to the world.   Amy Prince is the guest on the blog today to talk about where she shops in Atlanta, and she has some great ideas for where to shop for those Christmas gifts on the brain. Amy & I met at a friend's wedding in the spring, and I was immediately struck by what a beautiful person she is, inside and out! Their loft apartment in the Atlanta area is so adorably inspiring. I also heard through the grapevine that today is her husband's birthday! Happy Birthday, Max!

Hey everyone! I hope you all are able to check out some of my favorite stores around Atlanta.  My ideal shopping day consists of roaming through antique store after antique store & lucky for me, Atlanta is filled with them! I love how the inventory changes every week, making each shopping trip an adventure.

1. Queen of Hearts  photo queenofhearts_zps1b610bd8.jpeg I fell in love with this antique store on my first visit years ago & since then I have spent many hours browsing the booths and looking for unique treasures and fun finds. The store is huge, so be prepared to come with some time set aside to enjoy the experience of wandering through the aisles & shopping at your leisure. Although I love all the charming decor, my favorite thing about this store is the furniture. There are always countless pieces of furniture that are reasonably priced & full of character.  I’ve found kitchen tables, nightstands, old mantles, entryway tables, desks, vintage pie safes, vanities, and more. Each booth has a different feel & style, so it is easy for anyone to find the home decor style that fits them. Shoppers tip: bring cash. You get 10% off if you purchase with cash!

2. Classy Flea  photo Classyflea_zps508128c9.jpeg This store is a bit hit or miss compared to Queen of Hearts, but part of the fun is never knowing what you might find. I’ve purchased several items from here that I still love as much as the day I bought them.

3. World Market  photo worldmarket_zpse86598c4.jpeg Odds are you’ve shopped here before, but if not, I highly encourage you to check it out! I frequently shop here and rarely walk away empty handed. I love the style of all the home and kitchen décor and it is also a great place to buy gifts for others. Their scarves, jewelry, candles, picture frames, and artwork are all great options for gifts. My favorite purchases from this store for our home are our curtains, bedroom artwork, lamps, and hallway table.  Sign up for free to be a rewards member to enjoy all the coupons & discounts!

4.  Hobby Lobby  photo HobbyLobby_zps65108046.jpeg Although this is a chain store, it is absolutely one of my favorite places to shop. It’s hard to beat constant 40% off coupons in a store overflowing with beautiful home decor items & supplies to create your own art for your home. It’s a great store to buy holiday décor without breaking the bank.  I love decorating our mantle for every season & always find what I’m looking for here.
