When we saw the sign, we screeched to a halt to go shopping. How in Thunder were we supposed to resist shopping at a place that advertised, “Cool Stuff for Cool People?” After all, Mr. Tucker and I are “pretty cool,” if I do say so myself.
Lula Bâ€™s East, near downtown Dallas at 2639 Main St. is described on their website as “a treasure trove of all things fine and funky, kitschy and collectible, vintage and pimpadelic.” Pimpadelic?
This I had to see. And, I did.
I don’t know what y’all might think of this high-heeled shoe chair in leopard print, but I think that qualifies as “pimpadelic.” However, ahem, I do have to admit that it wouldn’t be out of place at my house … but it’s still there if you want it.
I was terribly tempted to take home these nekkid mannequins, to keep my collection of them company. But, we are on a buying moratorium until my Fall Overhaul is finished.
While the store did have a wealth of “stuff,” some of it quite interesting, it seemed overloaded with items similar to ones I’m currently taking to donate. It also included many items that I’m just “too cool” to own. Please tell me that I’m too cool to own a collection of Simpson’s dolls!
And promise me that I am far above owning a Velvet Elvis painting, or a painting of dogs playing cards, or a mosaic made of colored stones.
Believe me, I AM too cool for those … and so are you! But, if you want to see them, and are in Dallas for the day, it’s a fun shopping trip. You might even find something “cool” to tempt you to buy … but don’t get those mannequins! I’m hoping they will be there when I stop again.
You think I wouldn’t stop again? Sure I would! I have to visit Lula B’s again, because I’m “cool.” Besides, I want to see more “pimpadelic” stuff!
