Just 30 miles south of Dallas, Texas is the smaller town of Waxahachie, locally known as The Gingerbread City. Of course, flea market enthusiasts are more inclined to head to the large cities of Dallas and Houston in search of antique treasures. But missing out on this smaller town would be a mistake. The downtown area is stuffed with thrift, vintage, and antique stores, making it a paradise for collectors. Without walking more than a couple of blocks, it is possible to shop through all kinds of wonders from the past.

The town of Waxahachie celebrates its history, especially in the architecture of its buildings. It is known for its elaborate courthouse and there are many examples of Victorian-style buildings throughout the town. This makes it a great location for so many stores exhibiting items from the past. Red Barn Flea Market Antiques is one of the gems. It is a huge antique mall with many vendors trading under one roof. Shoppers can easily spend a whole day searching through the goods found here, though luckily it is open daily as it may require longer! Gingerbread Antiques is another mall, trading since the early 2000s, with plenty of antiques and vintage items to impress both casual shoppers and collectors.

Atelier Antiques is another store that should not be missed during a visit to Waxahachie. They have every kind of antique you could want, and the owner is incredibly knowledgeable, about both his inventory and antiques in general. For those with a particular interest in interior design and up-cycling, Waxahachie Architectural Salvage will not disappoint. This store can also produce custom orders so if you have a specific vision they can help you turn it into a reality. Bon Ton Vintage specializes in vintage fashion so those looking to overhaul their wardrobe should stop by here.

Since it is so close to Dallas, a visit to Waxahachie can easily be scheduled for a day out of your city break. Vintage and antique fans will be delighted with all the stores this town has to offer.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
