Shotgun!: Atlanta, Georgia (Part 1)

Shotgun!: Atlanta, Georgia (Part 1)

If I haven’t mentioned it before, my husband’s favorite past time is sword fighting- with the long sword, to be precise. He studies historical European martial arts with various groups in the Carolinas as well as Eastern martial arts at a local dojo. When he had an opportunity to train with a sword fighting studio in Atlanta, Georgia, we decided to turn it into a long weekend…which meant I could go junkin’!

Truth be told, a city as large as Atlanta offers COUNTLESS options for antiques, vintage, and thrift stores…so this post will just have to count as “Part 1” in a series…because with Atlanta not all that far from me, you can be sure that I’ll be returning many more times…for many more blog posts.

Let’s get started- here are the places I hit this time around!Read more ›

Junkin’ Journey: Chamblee, Georgia

Junkin’ Journey: Chamblee, Georgia

Exploring the Atlanta area has been long overdue for me…I mean, I live a scant drive away from this cosmopolitan southern city and yet I rarely make the time to head down Interstate 85. So, let this blog post be the first part in rectifying an overdue trip!

Puttering around Chamblee, Georgia was never part of my original plan- I had focused on Metro Atlanta with only a stop or two scheduled for Chamblee.

Junkin’ Journey: Savannah, Georgia

Junkin’ Journey: Savannah, Georgia

We all know how much I love Greenville…I’ve posted about it here on Sadie Seasongoods…I’ve blogged about it here on Visit Greenville, SC…and I’m a walking advertisement everywhere I go. But I’ve also had a lengthy love affair with Savannah, Georgia. I’ve traveled there for years, accumulating a list of favorite haunts…including a list of favorite junk shops. There are plenty of highfalutin boutiques and manicured antiques dealers in Savannah- if that’s your flavor.

But for me? These shops- both thrift and antiques- are quirkier, more affordable, and serve as wonderful muses for projects and ideas. So, keep this list handy next time you head to Savannah and maybe, just maybe, I’ll see you there.Read more ›
