While this is mainly a place to find costume supplies, it's also a very unique shop to find various used clothes, shoes, jewelry, clothing accessories, props, and anything related to dressing up.

This shop is unique in the fact that it's overflowing with personality and is possibly the most claustrophobic store in all of DFW.
