I have taken clothes here for a few years because it is very close to my home. Although they are very expensive they are a high quality cleaners and really take care of your clothing. They cleaned my wedding dress and preserved it. They got all of the stains out and really made the dress look close to new. They gave me a great deal on the cleaning of the dress. I would use them but they are pricy.
PROS: Excellent quality
CONS: Very expensive
We have been going to Fado for years. At first look it seems to be a chain bar but when you step inside, you feel as if you have been transported to Ireland. The place is dimly lit and has an authentic feel with the exception of the gift shop. We love the food, the beer and the service. I have never had a bad experience and love going to Fado.
PROS: World Class Irish Pub
CONS: Too Crowded sometimes
I have been getting my eyebrows threaded here for years. The women who work here do such a wonderful job that I have referred countless friends. Threading is much easier on your skin than waxing and much more precise. The only negative about the salon is that they are so busy that walk ins usually have to wait at least 20-30 minutes so definitely make an appointment or at least call ahead.
PROS: Eyebrow Threaders who Rock!
CONS: Very busy and sometimes the wait is very long
This library offers something for everyone. Come in to use the computer and print up to ten pages for free. Bring your children in for story time and hear the latest, most popular children's tales.

PROS: They have joined the age of technology and are online
CONS: Small location and you have to order best sellers weeks in advance

Rick photographed our wedding over five years ago and we still love the pictures. Rick is talented, patient and really listens to what his clients want. He did everything that I asked and then some. I was already anticipating a stressful day and he took so much of the stress off of me by being so wonderful. He is truly a top notch photographer and worth every penny.
PROS: Amazing Photographer
I joined Discovery Toys in hopes that all of my friends would see me as their source to buy these fabulous toys. This is not exactly what happened and while I no longer really sell the toys, I really love them and would buy them for my children anytime. They have toys for all ages and interests. These toys can help your children while they are reaching milestones and sharpen their skills.
PROS: Toys that last for years
From the moment that we walked in to this crowded, overstuffed store, we felt welcome. My MIL bought all of her baby furniture here and when I was pregnant with our first child, she said that she wanted to buy my furniture for me from here too. I walked in with low expectations given what the outside looks like ( a little run down ). I walked out with the perfect furniture for our soon-to-be born surprise gender baby. And a stroller, plus linens and a whole lot more baby stuff. I loved the store and I felt parenthood rushing at me. What an experience!!
PROS: Quality Products in all price ranges
CONS: You can easily fall in love with something too expensive
AtlantaMommas has been a huge source of support for me through the birth of both of my children. I really have met a great group of women who have become my support system and have really helped me to become a better mother. The online forums let us give advice, get advice and support each other through all aspects of parenthood. I would be lost without the support of these wonderful women.
PROS: Great place to meet Atlanta mothers
We have been going to Kims Care Kleaners for years. My husband refuses to go anywhere else because of the quality of service we receive. We live 13 miles away and I pass a hundred other places to get there, some of which are cheaper. I have yet to find any place comparable to quality of work that Kims Care Kleaners gives to every customers that walks through their door. They have had to redo my husbands shirts because they could not get the stains out. They keep trying instead of typical cardboard 'Sorry we tried' message. If you need tough stains out and want the best looking dry cleaning around, go to Kims.
PROS: Best Dry Cleaners around
CONS: You pay a little more but you get more
