One of the “Things We Love” about Lakewood/East Dallas is Dolly Python, which antiques dealer Brian Green describes as “weird and wonderful”. Dolly Python made the list because I always recommend it when people ask me where to find vintage cowboy boots, and it’s surprising how many people don’t know the shop is there. Advocate photographer Benjamin Hager created this video, which gets to the essence of Dolly Python.

Paperbacks Plus is a neighborhood institution. It’s a paradise for book lovers, and it houses the Writer’s Garrett.
