Wisteria Warehouse Sale
May 12, 2014
Just like any store, the warehouse that supplies Wisteria—the Dallas-based catalog home décor company—goes through spring cleaning. Note: this isn’t the physical store location on Cedar Springs we’re talking about; it’s the actual warehouse in Farmers Branch, and it’s hosting Wisteria’s annual Warehouse Sale this Thursday through Saturday. Our editors have been to this blowout event multiple times, and suggest shopping first thing Thursday for the best items and returning first thing on Saturday for the best prices on what’s left. But really, with savings up to 90% off on hundreds of items, you’re bound to find a deal no matter what time you stop by!

Derby Days at Vaudeville
May 1, 2014
Contrary to Hunter S. Thompson’s highly entertaining musings, the Kentucky Derby isn’t all that decadent and depraved. Okay, so it’s a little decadent. In fact, it’s an occasion where dressing like our royal friends across the pond is highly encouraged. Fascinators, anyone? We’ll take three. The big race happens this Saturday at 5:24pm CST, and our friends at Fredericksburg Hit List store Vaudeville are hosting a derby party worthy of the Kentucky Derby’s 140-year tradition. Purchase tickets here for a day of “classic comfort cookin’,” mint juleps, bottomless mimosas and a best hat contest. Check out our tips on what to wear to a derby party here!
