When Nashville business owner Kim Fennell touches down at Dallas Love Field, her first stop in the city is her favorite consignment shop. Fennell still sports a unique piece of jewelry she purchased in Dallas more than 10 years ago.
“The consignment shopping in Dallas is better than New York if you ask me,” she says.

Luxury resale options in the city are vast, offering must-haves for every kind of shopper. These are the best consignment stores in Dallas.
