The Savvy Picker: FAITH Thrift Store

The FAITH Thrift Store is located at 94 North Main Street in Clayton, Georgia. (

There are plenty of great places in North Georgia to hunt for and find vintage treasures. This week, The Savvy Picker takes you along on her recent trip to Clayton, where she found FAITH (and a great Cuban restaurant).

FAITH (Fight Abuse in the Home) operates two thrift stores in Clayton, Georgia, and the Savvy Picker visited both! The focus today is on the store located downtown at 94 North Main Street. The smaller of the two stores, this one features a lot of clothing, but there are some nice home goods scattered about too. Because the shop is clean, uncluttered, and nicely organized, it is easy to pop in and score a few deals.


In just a few minutes, I was able to score a number of desirable items, including a handblown glass paperweight shaped like a moose, an Italian wine jug, and some retro PEANUTS figurines.

Paperweights are always popular in my shop, and so are interesting bottles, especially those made of colored glass like this wine jug.

I was particularly excited to find the vintage Linus Candle holder for $6, and the vintage Snoopy for $3. These will sell for about $20 each in my shop, and they are unlikely to stay on the shelf long!

This was one of my quickest stops so far, but it was certainly worth it. Not only did I pick up a few great items in a short amount of time, I supported a great cause in doing so. FAITH is a nonprofit organization that provides free and confidential services to those experiencing or affected by abuse in Northeast Georgia. You can find out more about the organization here:

After my nice shopping experience there, I had an excellent Cuban lunch on the fabulous deck at HUSH before heading over to FAITH’s other thrift store, where I picked up some really fantastic deals, including English etchings, Mid-Century Furniture, and a Royal Doulton figurine, all for bargain prices. These will be covered in the next Savvy Picker article, so be sure to check it out!

The FAITH Thrift Store on North Main Street in Clayton is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Visit the store’s Facebook page for more information.

Who should visit: Anyone with a few minutes to spare who wants to run in empty-handed and run out with something cool.

Score of the day: Vintage PEANUTS figurines

Predicted profit on PEANUTS figurines: $31

Re-seller takeaway: Time is money, so if you find good deals in a short amount of time, it’s a win!
