Take Your Shopping Experience to a New Level along the Knox-Henderson Corridor

When it comes to getting a little retail therapy, the Knox-Henderson neighborhood (named for the two conjoined roads that stretch through the area) offers plenty of places to empty your wallet. This cozy enclave is not only one of Dallas' most walkable 'hoods, it's also one of the best areas to find trendy designer fashions, chic home furnishings– and eclectic gift items you won't see anywhere else.

A good place to start is at Forty Five Ten, a stunning luxury boutique with a celebrity following that includes Oprah Winfrey and Laura Bush. The store boasts everything from designer apparel to accessories and home décor. Next door you'll find Nest, the ultimate browsing ground for cool interiors, unusual decorative pieces and terrific gift finds.

More home accessories and extraordinary treasures, say like a crystal embellished skull, can be found at Grange Hall.

Head down Henderson to find Art is Art, a consignment gallery filled with mixed media paintings, handcrafted jewelry and mid-century modern furnishings.

If you're wanting to deck out your closet without maxing out your credit cards, hit Milk and Honey for fashion forward finds under $100. Another store that’s perfected the boho style is The Gypsy Wagon. Fashionistas and dapper gents will not want to miss the amazing collection of vintage duds and gently worn designer goodies at Vintage Martini. More men's apparel can be found at STAG, a lifestyle emporium of everything that's masculine and cool.

La Mariposa Imports is the place to find all things Mexican; think embroidered dresses, Talavera pottery, and Day of the Dead items.

And regardless of what you may be shopping for, be sure to make a stop at Froggie's 5 and 10, a specialty toy store filled with a limitless array of unique playthings and classic treasures from the past.
