A Dallas flea market with an attached tea room will give Frisco a taste of indie-style shopping and dining.
Flea Style, the shopping marketplace for handmade, vintage, and one-of-a-kind fashion and home goods from local artisans and small businesses, is expanding to The Star in Frisco.
This is Flea Style's second location. Founder Brittany Cobb opened the original in Deep Ellum in June 2018. She chose Frisco for her second location after an outdoor pop-up she held at the Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters was a success.
She'll open the 6,200-square-foot space in late summer, and will include a Flea Style store as well as an event space and culinary concept dubbed Heirloom Haul, a new company Cobb started to cater to her retail and event customers.
Heirloom Haul will be a fast-casual dining concept to reflect the antique mall tea room she frequented as a child with her interior designer mother in Southern California. The menu is a collaboration with a SoCal chef and has a California-meets-Texas flavor offering healthy sandwiches and salads with local ingredients including heirloom tomatoes.
The menu will also include a tea service with bite-size sandwiches as well as artisanal iced and hot tea options.
"As a child I grew up in antique malls and always loved the back mom-and-pop restaurants that served classic and yummy sandwiches, salads, and homemade sweets," Cobb says. "We will do the same but with loads more flair and fancy ingredients. The menu offers a mix of sandwiches and salads as well as a tea sandwich program and charcuterie boards along with artisan teas, coffee, wine, and beer."
After opening Heirloom Haul in Frisco, Cobb plans to open a second location later this year in Deep Ellum next door to their current HQ.
She'll also continue to host Market at the Star three times a year.
The new space will include 3,000 square feet of retail featuring home décor, fashion, jewelry, kids items, pet gear, lighting, textiles, and paper goods by Flea Style's long roster of small creative businesses.
Frisco will also house Flea Style Game Day, a custom sports collection made by local designers from repurposed and new apparel. The line will launch with Dallas Cowboys products from children’s rompers made from vintage 90s tees to bespoke jeans painted and studded with stars.
Attached to the store will be the Flea Style Studio, a 1,350-square-foot event space for private parties, art camps, workshops with Flea Style artisans, and other creative gatherings. Cobb also plans to tape the company's weekly "Fridays with Flea Style" podcast live from the studio.
