Pictures on this web site represent only a fraction of what was and is available in the store. Because many items are one of a kind, there’s no guarantee that they will be available for purchase. The purpose of this web site is to give you a general idea of what we have.All of the items in our store are not vintage. We sell reproductions, retro and new items. We also sell an awful lot of costumes that may vary in quality.
DALLAS VINTAGE SHOP has the largest inventory of Vintage clothing in Dallas. But we also have the largest collection of Vintage Knock-Offs, Retro Attire, Period Costumes & Reproductions, Glorified & Exaggerated Vintage Iconic Clothing Styles, Glamorized & Satirized Vintage Fashions and most Classic Historical Period Replica Garb. We have Re-Fashioned, Re-Invented, Re-Styled & Re-Created Costuming. WHY? BECAUSE our primary market is providing head-to-toe, “Wow-factor,” ‘Over-the-top,’ ‘Win the costume contest,’ Show-off, Complete outfits for Theme Parties, Themed Charity Events, Themed Gala Balls, Themed Corporate Events, Themed Bar Mitzvahs, Themed Quincenerras, Fancy Masquerade Balls, Gregarious Halloween Theme Parties, Murder Mystery Themed Parties, Themed Weddings & Vow Renewals, Themed Cruises and the like. As a result of having so many articles of vintage clothing and period costumes we have become a major source of costumes for TV, Film, Theatrical, Professional & Amateur Entertainers & Bands, Historical Reenactments, Childrens School Historical Costumes and so on. We have never claimed to be a vintage only boutique. We are not a costume only shop, We are DIFFERENT. We bring together vintage attire, vintage accessories, costumes, costume jewelry and retro reproductions of all periods and themes. We organize them by decade, century or other themes (according to their respective usefulness). And we do this in order to help our customers create fantastic costume getups that will amaze, intrigue and impress everyone at your event. THE REASON: There is just not enough Vintage Clothing that is large enough or durable enough for everyone who wants to attend theme parties. So, its better for our customers to mix true vintage, reproductions and costumes.
Every costume from DALLAS VINTAGE SHOP is a new creation assembled in our shop by you, the customer, with our help and encouragement. We do not sell ‘canned costumes.’ We do not quote or print prices on our website since each and every costume is a created by you at the time of purchase so prices will vary.
DALLAS VINTAGE SHOP does not ‘match’ prices or offer discounts. We are not a discount or discount volume store. We are more like a Custom Costume Concierge Service and therefore our prices reflect this. We have searched the world’s, the nations, the state and the community’s trade shows, manufacturers, distributors, estate sales, garage sales, thrift stores, vintage shops, dollar stores and many, many retailers for vintage clothing and vintage look alikes, retro reproductions, costumes and fun fashions. We produce or design and commission others to make, sew or otherwise have manufactured many of the hard to find or impossible to find items that you can find in our store. Our shop is overstuffed because we desire to provide unlimited choices, unlimited options and unlimited volumes so that thousands of party goers can go to the same theme party and not have to dress like anyone else unless they just want to. We help you custom design, assemble and completely accessorize your own unique outfit right in our store and that why we say we are most like a Concierge Custom Costume Service rather than a typical costume shop because that is what our target costume consumer and repeat customers have told us they want. We cater to upscale clientele because most costume shops do not. However, we try our best to offer as many items as possible, that have prices that even a single mom or single dad would be likely to afford.
