I hate to stereotype, but it needs to be said: Dallas loves to shop. (And now we’ve said it!) In fact, the only thing Dallas loves more than shopping is exclusive holiday shopping. You know, the kind of rare retail experience that only happens once a year. Or, even better, is only happening in our fair city. And given the precarious state of the supply chain, an intimate shopping experience with small brands and businesses sounds like the perfect tonic to soothe holiday stress.
Here, we’ve created a running list of the coolest shopping opportunities to hit in Dallas this holiday season.
The chic sister duo behind We The Birds has transformed their East Dallas studio into a holiday market, putting the spotlight on other talented local vendors that are perfect for the season. Expect goods from Fort Worth-based Kendall Davis Clay, ethical fashion from Pacha By Hand, cruelty-free beauty from Après, and more. The sisters also teamed up with jewelry designer Courtney Newell (Always Coco) for a closet cleanout. (Second-hand clothes = peak sustainability.)
