Vintage Tex

     The other day I came across a vintage boutique called Vintage Tex.  I was pleasantly surprised to see such a diverse shop tucked away among trendy boutiques and restaurants that line Colleyville Blvd. in Colleyville, Texas.  Vintage Tex, offers an array of women's, children and men's vintage clothing.
 A nice arrangement of women's accessories from hand bags to jewelry surrounds the racks of clothes from the 40's to the 80's.  There is plenty of sale merchandise to entice you to purchase a little something vintage.   Prices are affordable and the selection is diverse.  I will most definitely be back!

Hours:  Tuesday-Saturday 12-7pm

Top 3 Vintage Malls in Dallas Fort Worth

Vintage Shopping Never Looked Better

     Having been with Lula B's Vintage Mall for nearly a year now, I have to vote it as one of the best places for vintage stuff.  With over 80 plus vendors this mall is housed with vintage furniture, clothes, kitsch, records, home decor and much more.  Lula B's is unique in that the vendors specialize in era's that include the fifties through the seventies.  The upstairs floor is dedicated to funky fun vintage clothing.  If you are looking for mid-century furniture this should be top on your list.  With a wide variety of chairs, lamps and credenzas.  Lula B's is located in the heart of Deep Ellum in down town Dallas with free parking. Prices are reasonable, the staff is friendly and the location is funky.  Sister store is located in the design district.

     Next on my list is Dolly Python, located at 1916 N. Haskell in Dallas.  The selection of clothing is excellent but pricey.  The quality is no doubt fabulous, so I had no problem paying $50.00+ for a vintage wrap skirt..  Ambiance is dark and moody, with lots of nooks to find things.  Great place to shop.  

     Fort Worth is home to Montgomery Street Antique Mall.  With over 62,000 sq. feet of warehouse and about 170 dealers, it won't be hard to find what your looking for.  The mall is clean and well organized with rows and rows of glass cases filled with everything from rare books to fine jewelry and pottery.   I almost got lost looking around at all the colonial and mid-century furniture.  Prices seem reasonable and there is even a cafe.
