One of the best things about moving to Atlanta or any of its lovely suburbs is having so many outstanding retail destinations to check out. Here are nine of my top recommendations:
Ann Mashburn and Sid Mashburn
1198 Howell Mill Road, Suites 112 (Ann) and 110 (Sid), Atlanta, GA 30318
Ann and Sid Mashburn are authorities when it comes to all things style. Visit their adjacent women’s and men’s retail outlets at the west side of Atlanta and you will see what I mean.
Both of these sophisticated shops present exquisitely curated selections of clothing, shoes, and accessories that are designed, sourced, and produced by the couple. They also house iconic and hard-to-find pieces that fit their timeless fashion sensibilities like timepieces and jewelry.
Both stores offer “Made-to-Measurement” services that guarantee only the best fit for your best items of clothing.
325 Elizabeth Street NE, Atlanta, GA 30307
Established in 2000, City Issue is one of Atlanta’s most reliable destinations for mid-century modern-style furniture, art, and home décor. With a client base that stretches across the United States, this leading furniture store is larger than its Inman Park location might first seem.
Visit this store for exceptional authentic pieces from the 1950s through the 1970s, all sourced from their original East Coast-based owners. Drop by after Thursday for the latest great finds added to the inventory.
Fig & Flower
636 North Highland Avenue, Atlanta, GA 30306
This socially responsible beauty bar is your one-stop-shop for natural, eco-friendly cosmetics and wellness products. Fig & Flower’s raison d’être is to make sure that you do not only look your best, but feel your best as well. You can find everything for your makeup, skincare, hair, and hygiene needs – plus the peace of mind that each item is free from potentially harmful ingredients and materials.
Found Co. Decatur
335 West Ponce de Leon Avenue, Decatur, GA 30030
One of the most dazzling places you can visit for artful, sophisticated items for the home, this downtown Decatur store is a gift shop, garden, and apothecary all at the same time.
Come here for rustic home décor, tabletop wares, coffee table books, and small furnishings that are sure to add a distinct touch of the natural and organic into your living space. Gorgeous orchid arrangements and terrariums, as well as lotions and aromatherapy products, are also available here.

2928 East Ponce de Leon Avenue, Decatur, GA 30030
If you are into antiques, the ‘Zu will surely be right up your alley. This shop has built a sterling reputation as one of Metro Atlanta’s leading antique stores, coming a long way since its humble beginnings in 1979.
