“This Atlanta-metro thrift store sells second hand goods for a great cause—giving animals a second chance at life. Their two locations are just a stone’s throw from each other, giving you twice the chance of finding hidden gems you just can’t live without. Foster cats are a mainstay in their store, so you’ll always have plenty of company as you browse.”
