This past weekend I decided to venture beyond Dallas and visit a vintage store out in the middle of nowhere - Forreston, Texas, to be exact. Forreston is the sort of dusty little place that barely qualifies as a town. Lacking a stop light, gas station or any definable main street, it's the sort of place you drive through to get to where you really want to go. And yet, it was exactly where I was meant to be.
Bon Ton Vintage is housed in an imposing brick building which stands alone alongside a desolate stretch of road. It's the last place you'd expect to see. And truly wondrous to explore.
Bon Ton is an easy stop between Dallas/Fort Worth and Austin or Waxahachie, just off Highway 35E.
