I put "Dallas Thrift Stores" into google and got amazing results - see for yourself.

Do any of you know any of these? I'd love to hear of any reviews or recommendations.

I personally love the Goodwill at Shiloh and Beltline in Garland/Richardson. I find some really fun stuff there. I had a ball going through the necktie bin. I picked up several for around a $1 or less each that I am sure I'll make something out of.

And for clothes - I love the Buffalo Exchange on lower Greenville in Dallas.

First post.. Smiley

I love Garland Road Thrift (appropriately enough, on Garland Road) ... it's like the Wal-Mart of thrift stores, it's got everything.  

Ditto on the Goodwill on Shiloh.

If you're willing to drive to Lewisville, there's a monster thrift store on 121 west of I-35. It's called Rethreads & it is HUGE! I've tried to hit every thrift store in the metroplex & that is far and away the best I've found.

It's all true.

The BEST vintage store in Dallas!

If you are coming of 75 get on Henderson and it will be on your left on the corner of the street right after Cuba Libre (I think).  I also love Mariposa and Once Upon a Time on the right. 

These gals are also crafty!  They make awesome jewelry and skirts.  I got all the girls in my family something for Christmas there last year.  I just got my cousin this kick @ss skirt made of old T's with a Frida Kahlo right in the crotch area.

Check it out, the place is tiny but I know you will get lost for hours looking at everything.  Here is their web site. http://www.pandemoniumltd.com/


PS:  My family keeps telling me to take them but I don't want to give away my SPOT, you guys are privilaged to get this info.  Smiley  Ciao!

I have tried thriftshopper.com and a lot of the information is outdated and there are a lot more stores that aren't listed.  Do you rely on others to help you update it or what?

ahab bowen is a FANTASTIC vintage place. and all their prices are so reasonable.
2614 Boll St Dallas, TX 75204 in uptown.

also, i accidentally discovered several very large thrift stores one afternoon because i took the wrong bus.  Roll Eyes i'm not sure of the exact addresses, but they are at gus thomasson and ferguson. near the walmart.

and also, (during the day and WITH OTHER PEOPLE, it's not a particularly nice part of town)m wandering up and down jefferson st. in oak cliff, i found 4 thrift shops and a salvation army.

the BEST BEST BEST vintage store in town is dolly python in uptown.  they have the best selection of vintage clothing and the best prices.  while pandemonium is amazing...i do have to say dolly python out shines.  they have different collectors set up boothes there and sell their items, but the stores owner is always willing to work out a deal for you on the clothes.  you can get perfect condition dresses bags and shoes there for under forty dollars.  ive gotten chanel scarves for 12 bucks just to name one of the many good deals. 

the address if you like
Dolly Python, 1916 Haskell
