With a name like the Dallas Flea, you know it’s got to be good…or at least interesting. This was my first visit to this quarterly event, and I must say, it was both good and interesting. Below, I’ve highlighted my favorite fashion finds from head to toe, literally including items from headbands to shoes.
With the Artisann, you can order anything that suits your fancy, from nautical-inspired headbands to nature-inspired headbands and more. She uses ordinary materials like felt, buttons, zippers and ribbon to create extraordinary, one-of-kind pieces, and most are under $20! Perfect for weddings or just a girls weekend out, The Artisann’s got you covered.
Angela is a true artiste! She crafts stunning wooden purses, jewelry boxes and jewelry. Look closely. Can you tell that this exquisite, metallic butterfly was created by watch pieces?! That’s right- the painstaking detail of the butterfly’s wings and body are the internal gears and whatnot from pocket watches! Recycling never looked so chic.
What would any Dallas shopping event be without Three Bishops? The ladies have added even more delicacies to the collection: jade rondelles on chain earrings, hand hammered hoops and bangles and citrine globes with rutilated quartz cube. Of course, my favorite pieces hail from the Signature line, which features rubies, emeralds and sapphires suspended between vintage watch crystals and wrapped in an 18k vermeil bezel. There’s something Victorian and bewitching about these pieces…if the Signature line had a signature song, it’d definitely be Nina Simone’s “I Put A Spell on You!”
Lucky for me, they have a less expensive and equally mesmerizing line of necklaces featuring stones like smoky quartz, which would pair perfectly with my new cocktail ring I picked up at FIG. Hmm, decisions, decisions! Christmas could come a little early, couldn’t it?
