Dallas is not just about big hair, nice cars, and shopping. Even though there are as many malls that line the highways as there are cars on the highways (kidding) there are also pockets of cool. There are boutiques, local art shops, green grocers, record stores, and quite afew hipster locations for hipsters and non hipsters alike. You just have to know where they are. I love finding new places in Dallas, and even though I’ve lived here 4 years (I don’t really count the 3 years in college, because I spent most my time on campus, nerd? YES!!) I am always discovering new places and making new friends, and guess what? Not everyone here is from here! That is my favorite part. Dallas is not all southern locals, it has a wide diverse population, and most people here are accepting of everyone. Or maybe I just don’t get out enough to meet the ones that aren’t accepting. But if you live here, or are moving here then you are in luck. With the right guide to the city you have potential to love it here!!
Oh yes, and the weather is not bad!!! You get winter, but just when you are tired of the cold and ice, 60 degree weather rolls around, and you get a bike ride and a walk around the neighborhood. Which is what I did today. (As well as a trolley ride downtown, but thats not my focus for this post).
While out and about I went into a store called Stash Design. I already love the owner, even though I don’t know him. The store is incredible. The pieces light up with creativity, literally. From lamps made out of circuit testers, to coat hanger lamps, to vintage locker closets (so incredible). Not to mention they will be opening up the room upstairs for art classes. Can’t wait!
