AROUND TOWN: The Lucky Exchange

The Lucky Exchange is a vintage store that sells and buys back all of the top designers from Ralph Lauren to Balmain. Located right on Ponce de Leon Avenue in Atlanta, Georgia, this vintage boutique is nothing short of fabulous! My favorite part about the store is the variety of clothing that it sells. An oversized pair of sunglasses with a cool leather jacket or a suede mini skirt and a vintage T-shirt? You can find all of that here. You will be sure to walk out with something in your hand. I chatted with The Lucky Exchange’s sales associate to discuss this Atlanta favorite.
