When it comes to boy bands and beer buckets, you believe that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. But where shopping is concerned? You’ll never settle. Thankfully, there’s plenty to love at At the Collective. The new retail co-op is an adorable jumble of local art, beauty products, and home accessories. Sally B’s Sally Larsen and Susie Caldwell (Cottage Works) are the local biz wizzes behind the joint. Pop in for 25 booths filled with Drea James jewelry, Gifts on a Mission’s Kenyan artwork, and eats from local kitchens including Just Add Honey and Gardener’s Table. You may go solo. But prepare to leave a groupie. At the Collective, 280 Elizabeth Street, suite b103, Inman Park (770-696-5845 or atthecollective.com). Grand opening party, Thursday, April 23, 5-9 p.m.
