The Bishop Arts District: A Shopper's Paradise for One-of-a-Kind Treasures

When it comes to getting a little retail therapy, the Bishop Arts District delivers a gratifying and enjoyable shopping experience. Here you'll find an eclectic mix of boutiques, galleries and shops, alongside a myriad of cafes and eateries.

Thinking about decking out your man cave?  Then you'll want to check out DFW M'Antiques, a one-stop shopping spot for antiques and collectibles specifically geared for guys.

Want to take your wardrobe to the next level? Swing over to the House of MacGregor– where you'll find Cassie MacGregor crafting one-of-a-kind head toppers. Speaking of wardrobes, Indigo 1745 is the go-to destination for men and women's upscale fashions.

Looking for a unique gift? You can't go wrong with handcrafted candles from Society.  Or, for quirkier finds, be sure to check out Fete-ish.
When you're ready for a break, head over to The Wild Detectives and enjoy coffee or a glass of wine while you search through the curated collection of books and vinyl records for sale.

And finally, no visit to Bishop Arts is complete without a tasty stop at Dude, Sweet Chocolate for Katherine Clapner's phenomenal chocolate confections.
