If possible, plan to spend an hour or more in the store. We suggest you take a half day, or at least a 2 hour lunch, to pick and accessorize your costume. The store and the selections are huge, so you may need assistance in making your selections. You will want to come when our employees are are not handling the late afternoon and weekend crowds.

We hope you enjoy browsing and will be inspired to visit our store. Our site updates daily! Be sure to revisit often and share it with your family and friends. If you need costume or theme party ideas, you won’t find a better place to find them than our enormous encyclopedia of costumes. Spend an hour or two browsing our site to fully understand what we can do for you and your costume party needs.
We are a COSTUME AND VINTAGE CLOTHING MEGASTORE.
Our website tells the story with its thousands of images, but it only represents a small fraction of our costume inventory and ideas. Unless you have been to our store, this will all sound like hype. Our customers regularly tell us that our web site amazed them, but when they try to describe our store to others, their friends absolutely don’t get it until they have seen it for themselves.
Enjoy browsing our website, but remember it would be impossible to show everything we carry. Phone calls are welcomed and encouraged. Don’t hesitate to call us at (972) 422-7256 if you have any questions.

Dallas Vintage Shop, formerly Treasure Box, was founded in February of 2000 as a fundraiser organization for Servants for Christ, International. SFC has provided clothes, shoes, sewing patterns, computers, monetary donations and many other items to churches, orphanages, shelters and individuals for over 10 years. Thousands of boxes and bags accumulated for years as generous donors heard about our efforts. The donations came in faster than we could use them, but this was a good problem.
A U.S. business man living in Romania heard about our experience working among the youth in Romanian churches and orphanages. He knew about our stockpile of stuff and our desire to do more for the people, so he suggested we open a thrift store in Dallas, where SFC was located. He provided the funds necessary and Dallas Vintage Shop was born in Plano, Texas as Treasure Box Benefit Thrift. Because of the financial crisis of the telecommunication community of Richardson and Plano, the 9/11 incident, and the fact that our location was a logistical nightmare, the Treasure Box struggled for three years to survive. However, its vintage clothing and period items seemed to sell regardless of the economic times.
People wanted vintage stuff. Having had a background in drama, and thus a love for old clothes and crazy trends, the manager turned the Treasure Box into a store that specialized in everything vintage. The Plano and greater Dallas community have responded with overwhelming enthusiasm. We have asked our customers and supporters to back us in this effort and they have. It’s like a community effort to bring us the strange and wonderful.
One very lovely lady heard about what we were trying to do and drove across the Metroplex to donate items that belonged to her mother. She was very excited about the store. The items were too elegant and valuable to give to just any thrift store or charity. She didn’t want money, she wanted to make sure that her mother’s items went to people who appreciated them. The woman was glad to help us with our fund raising efforts. She walked out with a smile, a since of satisfaction and a tax-deductible receipt.
People buy vintage clothing, jewelry, shoes, costumes and other period items from all over to donate them. They bring us items found in their relatives closets, just to see our reaction to unusual, fun and weird stuff. Sometimes we think they just want to see how full we can pack the place with eclectic, random or diverse items. Donors and shoppers have fun at DVS, and we have fun with the wonderful and generous people who support us. They have helped turn our shop into what people from Seattle to New York, Tokyo to England, L.A. to Austin, keep telling us is their favorite store in the world.
Our customers are the most wonderful and diverse people. Some of the the biggest, most famous DFW theaters, as well as local, children’s, and high school theaters, church drama groups, professional and amateur jazz, dance, opera, music, TV and movie studios purchase and donate regularly. Costume shops from all over the country come to restock their 1920’s or 1970’s costumes from our supply. We are truly thankful for the many people who talk about us to their friends, fellow entertainers, theater directors, school teachers, theme party hosts and anyone else who loves vintage clothing and costumes. DVS is now a privately owned business, and the amount of charitable donations to existing and new organizations has increased.
