Whether on the prowl for Mad Men inspired mid-century decor, or something more Victorian, Dallas' antique stores have got it covered. Below is a list of five of our favorite antique stores in town, each heaping with vintage treasures and worth taking a browse through.

Dolly Python (1916 N. Haskell): Dolly Python is not your average antique store. The 3,800 square foot warehouse space located on one-way Haskell is home to some of Dallas' most unique treasures. Owner Gretchen Bell opened the space in 2005 and has since hand selected a large collection of women's and men's clothes ranging from the 1940s through the 1980s. There are also more than 20 antique dealers who rent out space in the warehouse, and sell everything ranging from cameras and jewelry to art and furniture.

Lula B's West (1010 Riverfront): This Lula B's is located in the design district and has it all. From vintage furniture and décor (including colorful swag lamps and retro bars) to glass wear and toys, it's the go-to place for antique finds, especially mid-century items.

Lula B's East (2639 Main): This two-story Lula B's location on Main Street in Deep Ellum is overflowing with unique finds. Like its sister location, the space is brimming with mid-century treasures, but more of its space lends itself to clothes. Actually, the entire second level is dedicated to vintage garments, shoes and handbags.

Forestwood Antique Mall (5333 Forest): Forestwood Antique Mall takes antiquing to the next level. It's not one of those places a person can meander through in a matter of minutes, rather it's a jumbo 45,000 square foot mall loaded with vintage finds. The mall even has it's own clock and jewelry repair and framing services as well as worldwide shipping on items.

The Consignment Solution (1931 Skillman): This Lakewood consignment store is loaded with vintage furniture and knickknacks, boasting everything from couches and dining room tables to lamps, mirrors and paintings. The shop won Best Discount Designs in 2010 and for good reasons. It's always fun to wander around the enormous showroom, keeping an eye out for great deals and new merchandise.

Looking forward to trying M'Antiques, but what about Lots of Furniture?  If I could go to one antique shop in town, it would absolutely be Lots of Furniture.  Great for large pieces and one of a kind.

Also, I don't know if this author has been into the Consignment Solution lately--used to be a regular stop for us.  Last time I saw 2 antique items and the rest appeared to be modern or designer items; the time before that, nada.  I wouldn't even in contention for an antique shop.

I was schocked to see that M'Antiques did not make the list. Perhaps this article was written for the women readers. As far as cool stuff for guys, M'Antiques is a great place to go and find cool stuff. An added bonus is the complimentary beer. I would enjoy reading a full article about M'Antiques.

Don't forget about M'Antiques in the Bishop Arts District!!  It rocks, AND it should be on your list too.

Ummm.... hello? Anybody home at the Observer? You obviously missed THE BEST antique shop in Dallas! DFW M'Antiques has something for everyone, including complimentary beverages (beer, wine and whiskey!). But that's ok, more cool stuff and complimentary beverages for me!

Yea.....M'antiques is the BOMB!! My boyfriend will actually go with me to get my hair done at Studio 410 just so he can swing by M'antiques while I'm busy. I end up being done before he is.

Great shops, all!  And be sure to check out the Groovy Chicas at Art is Art on Knox/Henderson.  They carry original, mostly modern art but also lots of Mid Century Modern furniture and whatnots.  Always unique old junque

You are fucking retarded for not having Curiosity's and having Dolly Pythons over priced assholes on this list.

Those are all some of my favorite antique shops for sure, but have you ever been to M'antiques in Bishop Arts?  The best part about it is that the owners always end up giving you pretty much a history lesson each time I've gone in.   http://www.yelp.com/biz/dfw-mantiques-dallas-2

Guys, remember Grampa's box where he kept old lighters, pocket-knives and his old dog-tags? Imagine if that box took up an entire warehouse...that's Man'tiques in the Bishop Arts District. No granny furniture or reproduced Coca Cola signs here. This place is INCREDIBLY hard to leave. The barb in the hook - free beer. It belongs on this list.

 @raysbrain I totally agree!!! For some reason, this comment didn't populate on my screen until after I commented. The beer is great and I had a shot of Jameson with the owners on one visit because they were celebrating their 6-month anniversary.
