At first glance, a retro tornado wreckage site; at second (and third and fourth), Lula B’s Antique Mall is a treasure trove of tchotchkes and collectibles that definitely don’t blow.
Vintage Vinyl Records, $5-$45
With rare finds (The Essential Jimi Hendrix, volumes one and two) and classic crooners (Cash, Costello, Sinatra), you can please your rocker bro and Rat Pack-lovin’ pa.
Leather Cowboy Boots, $35-$100
Impeccably organized by size (rare in resale shops), the new and used kicks range from trusty Justin wing tips to fashion-forward snakeskin boots by Larry Mahan.
Glam Glassware, $15-$165
The colorful decanters, dishes, and decorative doodads — some even signed — are perfect for nesters who love a statement piece.
Costume Jewelry, $5 and Up
Bowls, bins, and glass cases overflow with funky baubles that have a heavy hand on the ’50s, ’60s, and ’80s. We’re softies for the cheap and chic cocktail rings.
Retro Pyrex Serving Dishes, $9-$95
Can department store servers for a set of trusty throwbacks (cute figurines, colors, shapes, et al) that have stood the test of time — and are a match for poor, clumsy Aunt Polly.
Lula B’s Antique Mall, 2639 Main Street (214-824-2185 or lula-bs.com).
