I visited the store 2xs during the month of May 2012. The 2nd time was last time! I am a female, who entered the store professionally dressed, as I was headed to my professional job. When I entered, there were about 5 other customers in store. Within 5 mins, I was the only shopper in the store. The store is very small & the 2 female clerks NEVER acknowledged me, even after looking me dead in the eye! A 3rd person, an elderly woman who works there, even bumped into me and NEVER spoke to me. The only person who acknowledged me was the African-American woman who came from the stock room! Moments later, a customer walked in & the 2 clerks gave her the ultimate greeting! Appalled, I immediately left and emailed all the "higher ups" at the Buckhead Christian Ministry about my experience -- NEVER RECEIVED A RESPONSE!! I advised them in my email that I will never return there and I will take my recommendations with me! I'm an avid thrifter and it's sad that no one responded or apologized. All thrifters, take your $$$ to another thrift store, there are many!!! Not even worth it!!! Store is small and overpriced!!!!

I drove down to Miami Circle to find this upscale thrift store that I had been reading about. The selection was fantastic, the prices were fair, and most of all the service was wonderful, all of the people there are volunteers and they went out of their way to be kind, courteous and helpful. The brand names are tops, Gucci, Manolo Blahnik, Coach, Prada, and on. This place is a gem and it was a pleasure to shop here.

Buckhead THRIFTique is an amazing little store. The new location is boutique style, very clean and the clothing is top notch. You'll find anything from a simple cotton t-shirt to a 3 piece Armani Suit some with the original price tags. The shoes and accessories are fabulous as well, Ferragamo, Gucci, Prada (there was a pair of pristine Jimmy Choo's in the display case when I was there the other day - but alas - not my size). After doing some digging, I found out that the day to day sales staff are mainly volunteers from local Buckhead churches. On reflection, everyone I have ever encountered at the Thriftique has been so kind and extremely helpful!! I feel good about making purchases at the Buckhead Thriftique because it's sole reason for existence is to provide free clothing to people in crisis. Also, items not given away or sold to customers are donated to missions efforts around the world. Any profits are used by the Buckhead Christian Ministry to prevent hunger and homelessness in our great city. My advice - go shopping (and go often) and help others in the process!!!

Big disappointment...the clothing was pretty expensive for a so-called "thrift store" and make sure you carefully check your items before you leave the store! Two of the items I purchased had STAINS and one was RIPPED. At a Goodwill, you can understand, but to pay $100 and find stains and rips???? I won't be visiting the Thriftique anytime again soon....

I love this thrift store! The Thriftique is perfectly named because you truly feel you're in a boutique- but with super friendly people and terrific prices. It's in a great area with consignment shops and LOTS of antique stores surrounding it. I've found many clothes with tags still on them, and beautiful appliances (I missed out on the breadmaker. :( ) Check it out- often- because the inventory changes daily!!
