This area of Atlanta is so incredibly funky & eclectic. Tons of shops selling B52's-inspired vintage clothing, music, bright blue wigs, punk stuff, goth gear, rave gear, knee-high PVC boots with 5" heels, piercing jewelry, etc. etc. etc.
People watching is at its prime here. Bars are cheap. Bohemian attitude
What to buy: Whatever you're alternative heart desires....
What to pay: It's totally up to you...
Lenox Mall is a fairly large mall located in the Buckhead District. It is about 2 blocks away from Phipps Plaza and contains the more reasonably priced stores of the two. Lenox has most of the chain stores we know and love, or love to hate, plus a few restaurants and a food court.
Phipps Plaza is one of two malls located within a short distance of each other in the Buckhead District. As far as shopping goes, I think Lenox Mall has better shops and better prices. Phipps is definitely the more high end of the two, with its Neiman Marcus anchor store, Gucci and Tiffany's and the like.
But there are a few good reasons to visit Phipps. There is a movie theatre here, which is good for passing a rainy winter day in Atlanta. Also, the Tavern at Phipps (see nightlife tips) is a great Friday night spot which serves reasonably priced food.
What to buy: If you're looking for sales, head to Lenox Mall, which is about 2 blocks away. This is the place for high end merchandise.
Many people claim that they don't like caviar when they have never even tried any real caviar!
So you have bought caviar at the local supermarket? That stuff is only a sad imitation. It's like comparing a soy hamburger to a real 100% beef hamburger!
This store sells both red and black caviar. The prices are reasonable, too.
What to buy: I like red caviar. The best way to eat it is to spread a very thin layer of butter on the slice of toasted bread and then spread a thin layer of caviar.
Remember -- good caviar is NEVER too salty.
Also, if you like smoked and marinated fish, this store offers fresh, high-quality fish. Beware -- serve smoked fish outside or your house will smell for days!
It's a wonderful little store that sells delicious Russian chocolate (the wrappers are beautiful, too), canned goods -- vegetables, fruit, fish, meat, etc., Russian videos, CDs, books.
You will easily find something tasty or beautiful, for yourself or as a gift to someone else.
All food is fresh. The lady who runs the store is very friendly and will be glad to help you make your selection -- there are lots of things to choose from, I am afraid (nice problem).
What to buy: I usually buy chocolate and cookies. However, I have tried many of the other items and was satisfied with all of them.
What to pay: Average supermarket prices.
Located on the way from Atlanta to Marietta on Cobb Parkway---another big box store with anything you need from a book store-----
What to buy: books, maps
What to pay: average
