Best Old Bags Dallas 2008 - Zola's Everyday Vintage
414 N. Bishop Ave.
Dallas, TX 75208
Their racks of mod Twiggy frocks and granny dresses are cute, but the best buys at this Oak Cliff vintage shop are the accessories and handbags handpicked for sale by store owners Annette Norman and Diedra Sutton. They have keen eyes for quality. Best of all, they keep the markup low, meaning collectability is possible on a budget. From fringy hippie shoulder bags of the 1960s back to the tiny gold meshes of earlier decades, the handbag assortment will keep you pawing over the choices for hours. Recent finds include a 1920s gold evening purse for $36 and a girly-girl Whiting and Davis clutch, circa World War II, for $75. And you know that silver lamé number went home with us for $20. That's the sort of vintage bargain you just have to bag.
