"Consignment store Savvy Snoot was among the first businesses to turn Westside Atlanta into a destination. If there’s one thing owner Marty Mason has learned during the last ten years, it’s this: “When the economy’s bad, people want a deal, and when the economy’s good, people want a deal.” A pragmatist who understands why a homeowner might want to doctor the colors of a painting to match a room’s decor or to mix gently used chairs with a custom sofa, Mason has added two suburban locations, tripled the size of his flagship, and launched a private label—all during a recession that has shuttered many competitors."

"Dana Spinola was a pioneer in making boutique shopping affordable in Atlanta. In 2002 the then twenty-seven-year-old left a computer consulting career to turn her entrepreneurial spirit and passion for style into a business plan. She opened the first Fab’rik in a large, rustic space in Midtown, selling clothes for under $100—a revolutionary idea when frugal fashion meant Loehmann’s."

"If your bucket list includes shopping in Provence with Ann Huff and Meg Harrington, the art dealers–cum–tour guides whose eponymous gallery is just off Roswell Road, now all you have to do is drive over to West Paces Ferry. Their second store, Huff Harrington Home, is a trove of French and Belgian treasures accented with homegrown finds both spunky and glam."

"The bohemian chic and tomboy edge of this Buckhead native’s style is evident the moment you walk into Henzlik’s Roswell Road shop. As the clean fragrance of a Sydney Hale soy candle fills the air, your eyes go straight to the massive painting of a buffalo hanging above the checkout. The inventory reflects the eclecticism of its owner: classic Smythe jackets, MiH jeans, a fashion-forward orange maxi dress by Raoul, bold printed merino wool scarves from Virginia Johnson"
