Downtown Kennesaw, Ga, doesn’t offer much to anyone living in the 21st century. There’s a “computer” store, a few sub par restaurants, and a store that looks like a constant garage sale for over-sized homemade crafts. Outside of the Mexican supermarket, the only place I ever go is the St. Vincent de Paul thrift store. It can be found by looking at this map:
The biggest problem I have with this place is the hours, which are 10am-3pm. I’m barely awake at that time let alone clothed enough to be out in public. Being closed on Sundays is also a bummer, but then again it is a religious store that employs older people, so it’s understandable.
That being said, this is actually a great little thrift shop. They have a bigger selection than you’d think and the prices are fairly, well, fair. This place has plenty of furniture, nicely organized book section, a good amount of clothing, and several aisles of “stuff.” Every time I’m here I check out the shelf with board games; I always find something cool or that I’ve never heard of. This is definitely a place you’ll want to stop at if you’re in the Kennesaw area between 10am and 3pm. That’s actually pretty much the only time there isn’t traffic, so it works out pretty well.
I didn’t get a picture, but there’s also a small section at the front of the store with several wedding dresses. I actually know someone who used a Goodwill dress at her wedding, so it made me smile when I saw them. I’m still searching for a nice white suit that’ll fit me…a man can dream…
Anyway, I give this place 7/10 thrifted tweed jackets. And if you ever come here, please visit the supermercado next door. You won’t be disappointed.
