The day after Thanksgiving…

for many, is shopping day!   While the malls are over crowed and filled with grouchy stuffed people, I would opt for a more relaxed environment and head to the Westside Provisions.  If you like Modern Classics, the Westside is THE BEST location in Atlanta. 

Westside Provisions is a mixed use neighborhood located in West Midtown Atlanta, anchored by a large Room& Board furniture store.   A deal sends many scurrying about from store to store not wanting to miss that item on their list, but when you want a break from the noise and pushing stop by Room& Board. I guarantee, your entire disposition will change (and wish list will increase).  The atmosphere is always serene and calm, almost forcing you to whisper.  I love this place and usually get great seasonal deals from the back “clearance section” (which is limited in product and not clearly identifiable) but it’s right near the rugs and pillows.  I know the items may seem a bit pricey but if you are a person who is buying for a lifetime (or potential future resale when you redecorate) these items hold value, their quality and craftmanship is for a lifetime and that  one item can add a bit of sophistication to any room.
