Your Guide to Antique Stores in Dallas
Ever since I could remember, thrifting at antique stores has been a passion of mine, in fact, some of my favorite pieces in my home are from these Dallas shops. Although I rarely get to hear the stories behind the item, I still treat them like treasure!
These are a few of my favorite antique stores in Dallas--each one offers a little something different.
This Dallas antique store is located in the Design District near downtown. They've been operating for 50 years! It's safe to say they're the experts when it comes to building a special collection. There are some big ticket items like 18th century desks and chairs, iron chandeliers, and stone foundations. But don't let that deter you, there are also really great affordable pieces like jewel toned glass bottles/vases, silver serving trays, and wooden, cityscape trinket boxes.
There's plenty of artwork and vintage aluminum signs. Uncommon Market does an excellent job on organizing products that flow seamlessly into each other. There's an entire room that looks like a mini library, and a whole section of outdoor decor.
If you some stop by, check out their selection from Tyler Candle Company, there's a wide variety of candles and room sprays.
Address: Uncommon Market 100 Riveredge Dr, Dallas, TX 75207.
Open: Mon-Fri 10 a.m. - 5:30 p.m
You’ll find lots of French-inspired art, vintage jewelry boxes (I got mine here), and a rainbow of tea cups They even have tea time in their garden room but it’s been closed lately due to COVID. Forestwood's antiques are divided into categories, they have "street names" for each section. What's interesting is each consignment booth has a specific style! One collects grandfather clocks, another has tiny, gold photo frames, and some have rows of glassware spanning several decades.
I had been looking for a candle stick holder for a while so as soon as I saw the one above WITH a handle--I immediately knew I had to get it. Très chic! It was reasonably priced, too, just 25 bucks! You can also find old radios and other electronics. Great finds for collectors!
Address: Forestwood Antique Mall, 5333 Forest Ln, Dallas, TX 75244
Open M-Sat 10 a.m-6 p.m., Sun 11 a.m-6 p.m.
This shop has three levels and is the most budget friendly! I’ve snagged quite a few home items here including an amber-colored 70s style vase, a knitted doily for my plant stand, and a vintage hair clip (see below). The upstairs level has horror movie posters, masks, and toy collectibles from classic werewolf and Frankenstein films. I’ve spent the afternoon here with friends and we always find something to take home.
Address: North Dallas Antique Mall, 11722 Marsh Ln Suite 353, Dallas, TX 75229
Open: Sun 12–5 p.m., Mon- Sat 11 a.m.– 6 p.m.
This modest shop has some of the most unique items I’ve ever seen. I’m talking shrunken head looking objects and old medical posters. According to their website, “Side show banners, medical devices, porcelain advertising signs, tramp art, vintage cowboy apparel…Mother and son owners, Terry and Jason Cohen have honed the skills of finding the weird and wonderful to a fine art.”
Their record selection is pretty impressive, I was able to get a Cat Stevens album in GREAT condition. It's always a gamble so I'm glad to have snatched it up! They have fun bookends like the brass shell one below, I actually have a similar one. Perfect place to hunt for a gift.

This antique store was my go-to in college. They have a funky vibe! With more than a dozen seller booths, you can find rustic signs, pop culture posters, 50s kitchen and household items, and some vintage purses. It's in a great spot in Oak Cliff so you can hop to other mom and pop shops around town easily.
Address: 1982 Ft Worth Ave, Dallas, TX 75208 Open: Mon - Sat 11a.m. - 7p.m. Noon to 7 p.m. Sunday
I stumbled across this shop and was a bit shocked! The strip itself is a ghost town but the store has some fantastic pieces. The entrance has shelves full of vintage cameras and china sets, plant stands are scattered throughout and there's tons of products for sports fans like bobbleheads, jerseys, or baseball cards. This antique store seems to be the most affordable spot for every day items.
