Thrift Haul of the Week: Neiman Marcus Last Call Atlanta Liquidation Sale

Tuesday, December 26, 2017

Happy Holidays! On Christmas Eve, I stopped by Neiman Marcus Last Call Studio at the Lenox Marketplace Buckhead location do some last minute Christmas Shopping. Although, I am an avid thrift store shopper, I do buy presents to give to others on special occasions from the thrift store. Many may not agree with me. But if I gift something from the thrift store, it will be a just because gift or the "I thought you would like this" type of gift. To my surprise, they were having a storewide liquidation sale and those prices felt like I was shopping a consignment store.

The Lenox Marketplace store will close it's doors in early January. After doing some research via the internet, I noticed that the announcement was made in early September. Neiman Marcus will close 10 of its 38 Last Call outlet discount stores, to better focus on its highest-end locations. The nine other stores that will be closed are: Philadelphia Premium, Potomac Mills, Arizona Mills, Gurnee Mills, Livermore Premium, Arundel Mills, Philadelphia Mills, Great Lakes Crossing and Horchow Plano. Thank goodness the Last Call Outlet in Sugarloaf Mills will remain open!! You can read more about the their decision to close HERE.

Since I was doing some last minute Christmas shopping, I didn't spend as much time shopping for myself. But I did manage to scored three pairs of shoes to add to my shoe wardrobe. My grand total was $161. See what I scored below.

Let's Talk Thrift: Park Ave Thrift Outlet Woodstock Review

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

THE BACKGROUND: Park Avenue Thrift is one of the main thrift store chains in the Atlanta area. There are eight locations, including two outlet stores. Items in the thrift stores are priced individually at various price points. A color tag system is used and every day, except Sunday, selected color tags are 50% off. The sale color tags are rotated weekly.  Additional ways to get discounts include the following:

Text List: If you sign up for their text list, you will get exclusive 50% off coupons for additional discounts via text message.

Senior Citizens: If you are a Senior Citizen (or have access to a Senior Citizen), shop on Wednesdays. Senior Citizens save 50% off their purchase.

Items in the outlet stores start at $2.00 each on the first day of the sale week. Then the price goes down a quarter every single day. On the last day of the sale week, everything is just only 25 cents.

Park Ave Thrift Outlet Woodstock, 9740 Main Street, Woodstock, GA 30188

Monday- Saturday 9am-9pm
Thursday 8am-1pm
Sunday 11am-8pm

Friday $2.25
Saturday $2.00
Sunday $1.75
Monday $1.50
Tuesday $1.00
Wednesday 50 cents
Thursday 25 cents

THE SCOOP: This Woodstock location of Park Ave Thrift Outlet is a must-visit thrifting spot. If you are a thrifting newbie, you may be overwhelmed. I would advise taking a friend who can help you navigate the store and stay on task. The daily price point may convince you to by more than you need. So having an accountability partner, may help you stay on track. From vintage to modern, junior sizes to plus sizes and all the seasons, plus household items too.

THE SIDE EYE: Because of the price point at the outlet, you will encounter customers who are buying in bulk, especially on the days leading up to Thursday. So do not frown if you do not get the Southern hospitality you would expect. Just know they are thrifting with a different purpose in mind. Although this store does not have a dressing room, there is one "dressing room" mirrors placed along the wall near the handbag section. I would suggest wearing your thrifting uniform i.e leggings (or a skirt, dress) a close fitting top and shoes that are easy to slip on and off. This will allow you to try on clothes without getting undressed.

THE ACTION PLAN: I would suggest going on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. My favorite day is Sunday, because it is very calm and I always feel like I have the store to myself. The selection is also better. As it gets closer to the 25 cents day, the gems that I want may be gone. I also set a budget of $15 and bring my budget in cash, so that way I make sure that I shop strategically and only get items that I need.

THE SCORE: Green Blazer (Park Avenue Thrift Store)/ Cobalt Blue Pants (Park Ave Thrift Outlet-Woodstock)

Will you add Park Ave Thrift Outlet-Woodstock on your must-visit Thrifting Atlanta list?

Stylish Review: One Tribe Apparel Floral Ibiza Clutch

Tuesday, August 22, 2017

I was recently contacted by One Tribe Apparel to do a review on their products. After browsing their online store, I was immediately drawn to their collection of boho handbags which includes fringe purses & suede cross-body bags. I selected the Floral Ibizza Over-sized Clutch because the pink fringe tassel and the embrodiery detail was so unique! Just like their site says this clutch is perfect for me to release my "inner boho goddess"!  So I had to get it! Plus it comes with a long suede strap that is removable, so it can be worn as a clutch or cross-body.

Hair Care: Crochet Braids Freetress Water Wave Hair

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

I have finally jumped on the crochet braids bandwagon. My styling team took less than three hours to install the Freetress Water Wave hair. I bought four bags for the install and they used each bag. Each bag of hair was priced at $5.99.

It's only been a few days, but I am already in love with this effortless look. I keep asking myself, why did it take so long for me to try crochet braids.

Do you wear crochet braids? What is your favorite brand and/or style of hair?

Events: 2017 June Thrifting Atlanta Bus Tour (Photo Recap)

Monday, June 12, 2017

What I love more than thrift shopping, is to share my passion and be an inspiration so others would try thrift shopping too. In 2011, I started the Thrifting Atlanta community because I wanted to get the message out to as many people that I could, here in Atlanta and nationwide.

Today our social network has grown to over 30K members who are thrift shopping veterans and newbies, resale business owners and "thrifting" fashion bloggers. We enjoy thrifting at thrift, consignment and vintage shops.

Through our in-person events including monthly thrift shopping bus tours, fashion swaps and our annual Thrifting Atlanta Fashion Week, we spread the joy and art of thrifting in the city we affectionately call home: ATLANTA! The bus tours are a great way for thrifting newbies and experts, to learn more about the great thrift stores in Atlanta.

We travel on a chauffeured bus to shop up to ten thrift, vintage and consignments stores on one weekend (Saturday and Sunday) each month. Shoppers enjoy exclusive discounts at each store and get a bag lunch too. But most importantly are the friendships developed during the day.

Last weekend we visited the following stores: Goodwill Sandy Springs, Alexis Suitcase Consignment Sandy Springs, My Best Friend's Closet Consignment, Cherokee Rose Shoppe, Goodwill Perimeter. 

Check out a brief photo recap our thrift shopping day.
