7 shops you need to know about
BY Caroline Sheridan and Caitlin Clark // 6/20/22
When Nashville business owner Kim Fennell lands in Dallas Love Field, her first stop in town is her favorite consignment store. Fennell still wears a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry she bought in Dallas more than 10 years ago.
“The consignment shopping in Dallas is better than in New York if you ask me,” she says.
Count Fennell is one of those in the know. Shopping for luxury shows can be as unpredictable as it is satisfying, but Dallas is an often underestimated mecca for the art of sustainable saving. With consignment, buyers have dozens of designer options under one roof, where everything is checked for quality and authenticity. Selling through the best consignment stores ensures you get the money you deserve and leaves the pricing, sales and shipping to the experts.
The luxury resale options in the city are vast, offering must-haves for every type of buyer. These are the best consignment stores in Dallas.
