Live out your royal fantasy with these places to snag antique and vintage clothing, furniture, and accessories.
LIKE "THE QUEEN": Pulling out the pre-Civil War to 1940's style, the 31st Semi-Annual Antique Elegance Show was better known as the Victorian Elegance Show (at least that's what we remember it was called). 60 antique dealers from the U.S. and Europe will be in Richardson, Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For $5 admission, you'll get access to both days of shopping the dolls, art, furnishings, and the vintage clothing.
LIKE "THE KING": If all that "Mad Men" viewing has got you itching to dress your abode like Sterling Cooper, a new Dallas home shop might be what you need. DailyCandy tells us Form just opened on North Henderson selling throw-back furniture, lamps, and accessories. Everything has been restored to mint condition, making the sofas fairly priced and just like something you might imagine Elvis laying on.
LIKE THE "PRINCE": You can still live out your '80s fantasy of looking just like "Prince" by hitting Gratitude Vintage Clothing in Dallas. Sift through the piles of vintage duds to snag a Seinfeld puffy shirt, tight white jeans, and a pearlescent trench coat and you'll be "Purple Rain"-ing it faster than you can say "Raspberry Beret." (the kind you buy at the second-hand store)
