Spanish Caganer

This squatting fellow, which is yes, taking a dump, is known as “Caganer” (kaya’ne). It’s origins are in the north eastern spanish state of Catalonia. Oddly enough this little guy is considered a christmas ornament and can be found relieving himself near an infant baby Jesus in a common spanish nativity scene. $45.

Funeral Curtian

This is a silk velvet funeral curtain from the Victorian times. This curtain is about 9 feet long and 7 feet at its highest point. It conveniently folds up into a suitcase because it was used as a back drop in homes, cemeteries and churches or whenever the sad occasion would arise. It is in immaculate condition probably bc it was stored in its case most of its life. $1200. Odd Fellows Eye ceremonial tunic $248

Thank you Dallas Observer for the ‘Dallas Best Vintage Clothes’ award!!  (Here is a the insert on what they had to say about our shop!)

This 3,800-square-foot warehouse space located on one-way Haskell is home to some of Dallas’ most uncommon clothing items.

From mid-century prom dresses to Western wear, fur coats, costume jewelry and a massive boot selection, Dolly Python is the best place to go for unusual vintage finds. There are also more than 20 antique dealers who rent out space in the warehouse and sell antique treasures like old cameras, dishware and furniture, so the friend you brought along with you on your shopping excursion should be able to amuse themselves while you try on an enormous stack of sequined ’80s sweaters.
