“Recognizing Dallas Market Center’s strong position as an open-daily marketplace, we are excited to bring our Gypsy Market Place to DMC,” said Kirsten Haynes, Director of Sales and Marketing at Blue Ocean Traders. “With fresh inventory arriving regularly at the newest branch of Gypsy Market Place, our one-of-a-kind, high quality vintage items just came a step closer to DMC’s buyers, who will constantly discover project-defining must-have pieces, ranging from small to very large in scale.”
