Crest’s New Apartments in Dallas Presents the Story of a Store


Residents of Crest at Park Central new Apartments in Dallas are getting ready for Halloween. You can smell it in the air, you can hear it in the lobby and you can feel it in the hallways when you accidentally step on a piece of candy corn. Our favorite part of Halloween is seeing all the costumed people come in and out of the community on Halloween weekend. Some people get creative, some get cute and some get downright scary.

There are plenty of things to do this Halloween around Dallas, but none of the parties matter if you don’t have anything to wear. The best costumes are always the ones that reference pop culture, whether it’s the new show on Netflix or a classic ‘80s film. If you manage to make a pop culture costume scary then you’re doing something right.

We know our residents are busy since we have new apartments in dallas near Medical City Dallas Hospital, Texas Instruments and State Farm campus. That’s why we want to steer costume-seekers right towards one of the best costume stores in town without wasting any time. There’s only one place in Dallas to go for unbelievable, customized costumes that will win you any costume contest.

The Dallas Vintage and Costume shop is one of the most wonderful shops in town. The owners and staff take their costumes seriously, as you can tell by reading the plethora of information on their website. The friendly staff will work with you to customize any costume to suit your needs. Just share your vision with the staff and let them take it from there.

The store was originally established in 2000 as a place where volunteers sewed, stitched and cleaned clothes to donate to orphanages and shelters around the world. As word about the do-gooders spread, the store became an extremely popular destination for anyone with clothes, shoes, and accessories to donate. A stockpile began to build up in the back of the store, which was not necessarily a problem, but the staff couldn’t give the clothes to orphanages and shelters fast enough to make a dent in the ever-increasing inventory.

A businessman living in Romania, of all places, heard about the good work the store was doing and offered to help fund the transformation of the store into a thrift shop. With this transformation, the store was able to sell some of the clothes that were being donated to their cause. The thrift store struggled for awhile after the economic downturn in the early 2000’s but was rescued by another transformation. The owners of the thrift store noticed that their vintage clothes sold well no matter how the economy was doing. In light of this fact, the owners decided to focus their store on vintage clothes and costumes, rather than general second-hand clothes. Sales began climbing thanks to this new focus on vintage clothes and the store never looked back.

Dallas Vintage and Costume Shop has developed somewhat of a cult following over the years. People come from all over Texas to donate vintage, weird, eclectic clothing and accessories to the shop. It seems that people just want all the weird and vintage clothing in Texas to be accessible in one place, and the Dallas Vintage and Costume Shop has become that place. Despite all the success, the store still makes a point to donate clothes and money to various organizations every month, and the list of organizations that they support is only growing.
