At the end of the architecture at-risk presentation at the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League’s annual meeting Monday, past president Michael Amonett put up one last slide.

“This is just something I thought of,” he said.

The slide read “Shop historic.”

We’ve supported “buy local” and “shop local” campaigns and sentiments, but this is a new way to think about it. If historic preservation is important to you, spend your money in the old buildings that need our support.

“When you go shopping, leave your money in an old building,” Amonett says.
