BEST SPOTS: Neighborhood Thrift Stores

BEST SPOTS: Neighborhood Thrift Stores

ATHENS, Ga. -- For this week’s installment of Best Spots, we've compiled a list of Neighborhood Thrift Stores for you to purchase some eccentric and timeless pieces.

In today’s economy, it’s important for shoppers to get the most bang for their buck and the thrift store is where you can do that. Open your mind fashionistas and fashionmistas, the thrift store isn’t only for those in need.

Minx is a favorite among locals and university students. The shop, which features florescent lights and an adorable resident Corgi named Winston, has an impressive collection of vintage jewelry, boots, shows, coats and furniture. However, shoppers think the best part of the shop is the $1 section in the back and the $5 bin. This is the type of thrift store that makes thrifters happy. The store is located at 166 W. Clayton Street in Athens.

The Classy Finds Consignment store carries everything from formalwear to hardware and tools.
