New Year, New Stuff
Where to shop in Dallas right now: 6 haute second-hand shops for January
Do you have big plans for 2024, like building a better wardrobe? (Or finally cleaning out some pieces you never wear?) You can update your look without dropping a ton of cash — and help the planet out — by shopping second-hand.
Dallas is a stylish city, so your chances of scoring designer labels for less are especially high when you visit these consignment and thrift stores:
Located at 11661 Preston Rd., this luxury goods magnet began in 1974 when two Dallas moms started a suburban clothing swap. Now it's a swanky destination for Chanel, Valentino, Burberry, Golden Goose, Gucci, and more, all heavily discounted and nearly brand-new. There's even an online exclusives section for super-secret scores, and stylists host live shopping events every Tuesday and Thursday.
Genesis Benefit Thrift Store
The good this shop does for the Dallas community is two-fold. All proceeds from sales to the general public go directly to Genesis Women's Shelter & Support, which helps women and children escape dangerous domestic violence environments. Clients of the shelter are able to shop in the store at no cost, meaning they can pick out interview clothes or furniture for their new home completely free of charge. And its location at Lemmon and Oak Lawn means that bags and bags of high-end clothing often end up on the racks — a bonus for everyone!
Perhaps Dallas' most iconic luxury resale shop, Clothes Circuit has been serving up famous labels in the Park Cities for more than 40 years. You'll find approximately 600 brands in the store at any moment, ranging from Louis Vuitton, Prada, and Veronica Beard to Ulla Johnson and Isabel Marant. A whopping 500 items are added daily, all but guaranteeing you'll discover your new favorite item.
White Rock Center of Hope Thrift Shop
Nearly half of this East Dallas organization's cash operating revenue is generated in its store, and goes toward providing basic needs assistance to those facing potential eviction or utility shut-off. New clothing, jewelry, shoes, and accessories arrive daily, and be sure to scour the Boutique, a special section inside the store that features high-fashion items.
Regular thrifters keep a calendar of this chain's numerous sales, which range from tag specials to 50 percent discounts. VIP members even receive 25 percent off full-price items (excluding jewelry) each Sunday. Nine locations throughout the Dallas area mean there are plenty of opportunities to uncover treasures, and proceeds benefits a whole roster of nonprofit partners like Operation Kindness and Ronald McDonald House.
Find clothing, designer bags, shoes, and children's clothing at this family-owned and operated shop on Forest Lane near 635. Those in the know keep a close eye on the Facebook page, which alerts followers to major sales and other big ways to save, including Thrifty Thursday when certain tags can signal as much as 75 percent off.
