In November of 2005, Proprietor Gretchen Bell signed the lease on an empty space which has grown into a 3,800 sq ft. vintage emporium. Over the years we have become a multi award winning vintage store.
At Dolly Python 1/3 of the store is filled with hand selected clothing from the 1940's-1980's for both women and men. Legendary Dallas vintage store Ahab Bowen has joined ranks here at Dolly Python since it's closing in 2011. Dolly consigns Ahab's clothing, both new and never seen.
We carry a large selection of vintage boots ranging from cowboy to motorcycle and combat boots for women and men. We also have a variety of dress shoes for both men and women.
Adorning our cases are loads of fabulous vintage jewelry pieces from every decade. We also feature Beth's Addiction and Savage Bones and Stones among our jewelry selections. Erik Yang of Lush Life Antiques also consigns his vast jewelry collection with us. He offers a selection of Native American turquoise, Art Deco, contemporary and much more.
GUY STEELE is our vintage music expert. His space includes a carefully organized and hand selected variety of vintage vinyl, 8 tracks, posters and other rock memorabilia.
Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday Nancy Lloyd is available for Tarot readings to the public. Each reading costs $20 and is based on a first come, first serve basis.
The store itself umbrellas over 30 different antique dealers and consignors, who restock and edit their booths almost daily. We love, carry and have quite a lot of old photos, cameras, memorabilia of all kinds, strange art and old paintings, velvet paintings, black light posters, pottery, gilded frames, Victorian, Edwardian, Art Deco, Retro, Americana, religious, year books and other items from institutions of learning, medical, military, ephemera, mid-century, furniture, lamps of all kinds, strange dolls or just their parts, vintage fabrics, quilts, mirrors, books, taxidermy, folk art, antiques, camp and kitsch, collectibles, oddities, advertising, political, all kinds of glassware, postmortem, fraternal items, housewares, and childhood nostalgia from every decade. The list goes on and on. Everything here is more or less historic and no two things are alike in our store.
