Best Of Atlanta 2010 Consumer Culture Large


Consumer Culture

Once upon a hapless time, sculpted blond bouffants were the choice coiffeur in our city, and trendy Atlantans sported pink, popped-collar polos. Boy, have we come far!

Our favorite shops this year are stylish spots that transcend clichés. Many of our picks also keep the misers in mind — the dirt-cheap Axiom Salon for Men and the surprisingly reasonable Fab'rik boutique — with a nod to the high rollers, too — the elegant furniture showroom at Bungalow Classic and gorgeous new threads from Ann Mashburn.

We've also trained an eye on the work of local artisans and craftspeople: the charming letterpressed invitations at Bumblebee Press, the artful arrangements at Adaptation Floral Designs, and the gorgeously rendered sleeves of ink at Only You Tattoo. Whether you have a few grand to splurge or just a few bucks, you don't need any excuse to submerge yourself in our Consumer Culture.
