Lakewood Consignment Studio

Posted by    |    August 18th, 2011 at 8:38 pm

I love exploring Lakewood. You never know, on any given day, what you might find. Be it nail salon, beading store or authentic thai food, Lakewood has it…but keep your eyes peeled. Sometimes they’re located on the streets less traveled.

I drive on Skillman daily. But rarely do I venture all the way down to where it dead ends at La Vista. Thankfully, on Monday, I did. Much to my delight, I found yet another Lakewood gem. Lakewood Consignment Studio caught my eye…and I’m fairly certain my quick lane change and last minute turn into their parking lot made a screeching sound like the one you hear in the movies. As I enter their shop, my initial reaction was disbelief and weak knees. Two woven wicker, vintage Neiman Marcus chair  sat before me. They were priced exceptionally well and if they would have fit in our little Lakewood abode, I would have immediately snatched them up.  (more…)

YPD: Out of all the neighborhoods in Dallas, you chose Lakewood. Why is this community special to you?
CB: It’s eclectic, fun, totally family oriented.  Feels like a SMALL town but you’re in Dallas!  The schools do so many things to involve the families … movie nights, carnivals, popsicle parties.  It’s so fun!  I love the diverse architecture of the homes, the trees and being so close to the lake.
YPD: Speaking of homes and trees, which Lakewood street is your favorite for taking in the sights?
CB: Tokalon…aahhhh

You’re like…so Random.

Haven’t been to Hillside Village lately? Gasp!  Don’t panic.  But do cancel your afternoon plans and, in the words of Kinsey Powell, Dallasite and no stranger to sarcasm, get…over there.  New stores are popping up all over the center, giving a fresh face to this Lakewood landmark.  One of my favorite new shops (and the prime place to perfect gift giving) is Random– a quirky, fun mix of stationary, home decor, jewelry and more.   Grab a Seda France candle for that hostess with the most-est, a Fatboy Doggielounge for your ever-faithful Fido or let your love flow with a greeting card by Southern Fried Paper.  “I love you more than NorthPark gold” is my personal fave.
