Dream in Plastic was born in a basement in Brooklyn in 2007. It was the vision of Jenny and her best friend since Kindergarten. They were obsessed with collecting vinyl art toys and always dreamt of opening their own business... "Dream in Plastic" had spawned.
This webstore became a culmination of everything they loved & shopped for. They had always been notoriously good gift-givers, and extended their playful and fun attitudes to their product offerings – an eclectic mix of housewares, designer art toys, cameras, vintage, accessories, bath & body items, socks, stickers and more.
After having to give up their sweet (free) basement shipping warehouse in Brooklyn, they opened the current brick-and-mortar store in 2009 in the charming Hudson River town of Beacon, New York. Jenny lived not too far away in Warwick, NY so they already loved Beacon for it's arts-rich community and super-cool residents.
Fast forward to current day:
Beacon has grown so much since we opened up shop here! With its plethora of craft beer, great restaurants, shops, art and music - there is always something great going on. Jenny now lives right around the corner and runs DiP with the help of a few lovely minions.
We continue to curate the shop with the latest, greatest and most unexpected products. Whether it be a snarky greeting card, a collectible art toy to keep you company at work, or finding that perfectly unique gift for that hard to shop for person - we hope we can bring a smile to your face!
