(Sorry about the delay this was written a day after the Super Bowl was hosted in Atlanta on February 3rd 2019)
Going to the thrift store on half of day is like a frugal person’s version of an amusement park. Everything you pick up is half off so this is a must when your on a budget but would love some new looks to add to your closet. The one I go to in Decatur,GA very close to Atlanta,GA it is HUGE! It’s called Last Chance Thrift Store. I think the location on North Decatur Road is the last one open (Don’t quote me on that)
This thrift shop is so huge it’s a big ass warehouse and I don’t care what time you go your going to be able to get some steals. I got there after 11am and it wasn’t even packed. Yesterday was the Superbowl and Atlanta hosted it at Mercedez Benz Stadium so I’m thinking going thrifting the next morning was probably the last thing on people’s minds when they woke up. So of course I took full advantage got up and went.
I got mostly shirts and t-shirts so of which were .50 (Tip: Go to the mens section it’s a goldmine for t-shirts) I know the guys are like “What are you doing?” but it’s filled with cute t-shirts from .50-$1 I didn’t even look through the whole rack and had a handful of cute t-shirts! I managed to take my time this time and really look for pieces I liked. I found plenty name brands some I picked up some I left. I spotted Gap, Tommy Hilfiger, Forever 21, Banana Republic, A cute Starter jacket, Old Navy you can basically find anything you are looking for as long as your patient and willing to look.
This thrift store location actually has multiple dressing rooms. Most thrift stores do not have a try on area which makes this one even more appealing. I didn’t use them on this trip but my next trip when I go shopping for jeans on a regular day I will definitely be utilizing the dressing rooms to make sure I don’t come home with a bunch of jeans that don’t fit.
I enjoy going a little later the crowd likes to be there at opening (8:30am) I like to let that die down and come around 10am-11am it’s a bit slower by then.
If you can overlook this thrift store being a little bit more grungy and in a warehouse setting your going to save alot of money. The ½ off day is every Monday so you have 4 chances a month to get your thrift on at half price.
If your in the Atlanta/Decatur area it’s located at:
LC Thrift Store
2935 N. Decatur Road
Half Off is every Monday! Make sure to ask for a punch card to get $5.00 off when you get 10 punches. Happy Thrifting!
