So we know Dallas has some great history, but really, we haven't been around to see much of it in our short lives. Good thing our friend Stephanie (who co-leads Etsy Dallas with us and is the designer behind Tefi) had a sec to shoot us a link for this really cool blog that documents some of the cool things from Dallas' past: Old Dallas Stuff
For example, One of my favorite postings from the site was about a defunct shop called Olla Podrida, which according to Stephanie the literal Spanish translation is "rotten pot", and the actual translation is "melting pot (giggle). Olla Podrida was a huge building filled with arts, crafts and all things handmade. This retro craft mall was right off Coit and LBJ, and was the hot spot for buying crafty goods back in the day. Sadly it's no longer there, but much more modern and hip craft retailers have popped up since then.
Anyways, go hit up the Old Dallas Stuff blog and check out vintage Dallas for yourself.
