Around Town: The Wise Penny

One of the things I love about living in Lake Walker is its close proximity to awesome thrift stores. My favorite thrift store is THE WISE PENNY, located at 5902 York Road next to Senator Theatre.

On my latest trip I lucked up and got this cute Jack & Janie sweater for the baby for only $1.50. You can't beat that!

Here's a look at some of their other merchandise.

They often have very nice evening bags that are reasonably priced. There's also a bridal section if you're getting married (sorry I forgot to take a picture of it).

The kiddie department is definitely worth a look. Most pieces are $5 or less, and if you browse carefully I promise you'll find something you like.

The men's department is the best of any thrift store in the area. They regularly have great men's staples like sports coats and polos. You can get a nice Brooks Brothers shirt for under $10.

You can find nice drinking glasses, tea sets, and more.

Be sure to stop by when you get a chance. They're on the corner of York and Belvedere. Select merchandise is currently an extra 30% off!

  2. Oh, I love the cabinet in the last picture! And how could you possibly beat a beautiful kid's sweater for $1.50?

  3. Yes, I love the cabinet as well. That coral color is really awesome.

  4. I had no idea this place had such good stuff!!! Will have to check it out!!

  5. I found your blog through Instagram. Since you are so close, think about joining the Junior League. With all the other great aspects, we get a discount on the days we volunteer working in the Wise Penny:)

  6. Hi Ashley. Thanks so much for stopping by. That's a great idea. I'll look into joining.
