Pirates to Pin-Ups: 15 Years of Costumes and Couture
Dallas Vintage Shop, formerly Treasure Box, was founded in February of 2000 as a fundraiser organization for Servants for Christ International. Clothes, shoes, sewing patterns, computers, cash proceeds and more have been supplied to churches, orphanages, shelters and individuals through SFC for over 10 years as generous donors heard about our efforts. The donations came in faster than we could use them and this was a good problem. A business man from the US was living in Romania when he heard about our experience in working among the youth and in churches and orphanages there. He knew about our stockpile of stuff and our desire to do more for the people of Romania and other countries so he suggested we open a thrift store in Dallas where SFC was located.
Dallas Vintage Shop was born in Plano, Texas as Treasure Box Benefit Thrift. Because of the financial crisis, Treasure Box struggled for three years to survive. However the vintage clothing and other period items seemed to sell regardless of the economic times. People wanted vintage stuff. Having had a background in Drama and a love for old clothes and crazy trends the manager of the store turned the Treasure Box into a thrift store that specialized in everything vintage. The Plano and greater Dallas community has 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 deliver some items that were her mothers. She was very excited about the store. She said the items were too elegant and too valuable to just give to any thrift store or charity. She didn’t want any money, she just wanted to make sure that people who appreciated her mother’s items would be able to use them and she was glad to help us with our fund raising efforts. She walked out with a smile, a since of satisfaction and tax-deductible receipt.
People buy vintage clothing, jewelry, shoes, costumes, lamps and other period items from estate sales, garage sales and other thrift stores and bring them to Treasure Box to donate them. Some teenagers regularly bring us items that they found in their relatives closets just to see our reaction to such unusual or fun or weird stuff. Sometimes we think people just want to see how full we can pack the place with the most eclectic, random or diverse clothing collection in the world! Donors and shoppers have fun and we have fun with the wonderful and generous people who support us. They have helped turn the Treasure Box into what people from Seattle to New York, Tokyo to England, L.A. to Austin, and many other places keep telling us it's their favorite store in the world.
Our customers are the most wonderful and diverse people. Some folks from the biggest, most famous theaters in Dallas, local theaters, children's theaters, high school theaters, church drama groups, professional and amateur jazz, dance, opera, music, TV and movie people purchase and donate regularly. Costume shops from all over Texas and other states come to restock their 20's or 70’s costumes from our supply of great clothing. We are truly thankful for the many people who call or e-mail their friends or fellow entertainers, their theater directors, school teachers, theme party hosts and just anyone they know who likes to give or purchase vintage clothing and costumes.
DVS is now a privately owned business and the amount of charitable donations to existing needy organizations has increased and new organizations have been added to the list.
