Deep Ellum has gone through many revivals over the years, but a flurry of new restaurants, bars– and now, retail shops– is breathing new life into one of Dallas' hippest hoods.
Most of the area is best explored by foot, and a good place to start is on Main Street where you'll find Jade & Clover–a trendy lifestyle boutique boasting an eye-catching spectrum of everything from home decor to apparel and eco-conscious gifts. Unique art, gifts and home decor can also be found across the street at Life of Riley. But be careful, it's almost impossible to walk out this store empty handed.
For a real blast to the past, check out B4's massive collection of vintage toys, vinyl records and even old Polaroid cameras. And if you want to channel your inner goddess, the female fashionistas at Dallas PinUp can glam you up from head to toe just like Marilyn Monroe.
Hop over to Elm Street next for a visit to Elluments, a vintage apparel boutique brimming with gorgeous garb. For trendy dude's, there's Epocha, an edgy menswear boutique peddling clothes, footwear and art. Get Reel Goods is the place to find locally made clothes, art and gifts. Also along Elm is The Mozzarella Company, famous for its award winning artisan cheese.
Finally, you'll want to make your way over to Commerce Street to discover the lineup of fashionable, yet reasonably priced finds at Accessory Junkie.
