Folks loved Lakewood because, in addition to the costly antiques, there was plenty of good junk and funky tchotchkes to be had at reasonable prices. Long known as Lakewood’s upmarket cousin, SCOTT ANTIQUE MARKET had higher-end collectibles at higher prices — and it still does. But many former Lakewood merchants have set up shop at Scott, even spilling out onto the grass beside the convention hall. Sure, it still has Shaker furniture with laugh-out-loud price tags, but you can also find post cards, tea pots, old radios and tacky commemorative plates you didn’t even know you needed. less...

The recent explosion of interest in midcentury modern relics has antiques dealer Lee Cuthbert knocking on wood (Heywood-Wakefield, of course). Her young Decatur store, Victory Vintage, specializes in post–World War II furniture, accessories, artwork and educational aids. Reproductions and retro-flavored paper goods are available, too. While her inventory is similar to that of shops such as City Issue and Twentieth Century Antiques, Cuthbert’s low prices and unusually personal customer service have us snagged. Look for swell discounts on items that haven’t moved for more than 60 days.
303 E. College Ave., Decatur. 404-373-5511. www.victoryvintage.com.

When our hankering for shabby chic, rustic ornaments or vintage jewelry strikes, we take our behinds to the affordable KUDZU ANTIQUE MARKET. While many of the items are more vintage than antique, the prices rarely soar above our wallets' means, so we don't mind digging through the occasional dusty shelf in search of milk glass, handheld eggbeaters and other assorted kitchenware. Plus, there are racks of old magazines and books, the occasional toys and cases of costume jewelry ready for a Sunday church outfit. Of course, the shelves themselves are often for sale, with a wide selection of styles, from farmhouse to frou-frou. "2874 E. Ponce de Leon Ave. 404-373-6498." less...

Part granny's attic, part Buckhead gallery, CITY ISSUE delights with its mishmash of mid-century finds with doable prices. Playfulness and optimism pervade the rows of curvy fiberglass chairs and kidney-shaped cocktail tables, reflecting the post-war Americans who first made them popular. In addition to impossibly immaculate furnishings, the boutique collects kitschy souvenirs such as flash cards, fashion magazines and turntables.
