Cheap Chic: Thrift and Vintage Store Shopping in Dallas
I’m super excited to write this post! It’s dedicated to my favorite thrift and vintage stores in Dallas. If you’re anything like me, you love to shop (what girl doesn’t?!), but you’re on a pretty tight budget or you just don’t like to spend an arm and a leg for new stuff . The solution: thrift stores and vintage stores! *Ta Da*
Here are a few of my fav stores:
This cute little place is located in uptown at 2614 Boll Street. They have some crazy seriously vintage clothes and the best accessories in Dallas. This place is like a hidden treasure chest for accessories. Seriously. They have great funky, unique jewelry that you can’t find anywhere else. It’s also pretty affordable, pieces range from $10 -$20.
St. Vincent de Paul
This GINORMOUS thrift store is located at 3052 W. Northwest Highway. You could spend hours here…well at least I did. This place is not for shopping novices. You have to dig for quality finds, but the store is very well-organized and makes that process easier. You have to have an eye for fashion and putting together ensembles to find this place worth while. That being said, this is my new fav places to shop! I have some pictures at the bottom of this post of some of the things I bought from there.
Lula B’s is great vintage store located in artsy Deep Ellum at 2639 Main Street. This place is a one stop shop for furnature, dishes, pictures, accessories and of course clothes! You have to go to this place to really appreciate it. You could get lost for hours roaming and looking at all the crazy cool furniture. When you venture to the back and up the stairs they have a nice little collection of vintage clothes and even costumes. I really love this place and the people that work there are awesome too!
Buffalo Exchange is on lower Greenville at 3424 Greenville Avenue. This resale store is a great alternative to going to the mall. They have more recent clothes and sometimes designer jeans at big discounts. It’s a great place to fill in the gaps in your wardrobe. I have gotten great shoes and jewelery from here too.
Sorry, dont have a pic of this one 😦 Dolly Python is at 1916 North Haskell Avenue. This funky place has seriously vintage clothing, some of it borders on costumes, but it could work depending on the outfit you are trying to put together. I got a great little multi color mini skirt from here. In addition to clothes they have other vintage randomness records, tables, dishes, etc.
Clothes Horse Anonymous
Clothes Horse Anonymous is located at 11661 Preston Road. This place is a great designer consignment store. It’s not cheap though. They have designer duds and accessories at serious discounts, but will still cost you a pretty penny. This is a great place to go when you are looking to buy a quality designer item, but can’t quite hand over the few hundred or few thousand dollars to purchase it. I got a great vintage Chanel bag from here that I wear with everything (pictured below)
