Cat's Meow Marketplace

The other day, I was killing time waiting for my car to get new tires when I noticed a cool new store in the strip mall next to the mechanic. It's called the Cat's Meow Marketplace, and is sponsored by an animal rescue organization called FurKids. They call it a yard sale, but it's basically a thrift store. It's pretty big, and they have everything! I saw couches, kitchen appliances, clothes, pictures, books, cat stuff, and yes - they even had a kitchen sink! They had a good selection of used books - from health (like the best diet pills) to popular fiction (I saw some Tom Clancys) to finances (Dave Ramsey anyone?). And next to it was a section for pet supplies! (Don't usually see that in thrift stores! :-)) Their prices seemed reasonable, too. Unfortunately, I didn't need anything at the time, but if I am on the lookout for something I'll definitely check it out. They are open Saturdays from 9-4pm, and they accept cash only. They're located at 4015 Holcomb Bridge Road in Norcross, GA. The proceeds go to benefit the organization, about which I've heard great things. I'm all about helping animals! I also like that I can donate stuff there if I want - and it's tax deductible. I have a box in my apartment that is quickly filling with things to donate, so when it's full I'll be sure to drop it off. I'd encourage you to check it out if you're in the need of some second-hand items! Support the animals and get great deals!
