The Vault is a feature of Battlefield Heroes. It serves as a resting place for sets and items that after receiving a formal introduction to the game have since been removed from the store.
Items that enter the Vault are not removed from the game, they are simply not available for purchase any more. Items in the Vault may remain there for an indefinite amount of time. However, they may appear again for sale as a deal of the day or as a Hot deal for a limited amount of time. Additionally, holiday event items related to Christmas, Halloween and Easter, which are only available during their respective event, are also considered to be in the vault.

There isn't a lot of official information available regarding The Vault, but it appears to exist for two specific reasons. First of, to keep the store lightweight and easily navigable, and secondly, to improve business.
Prior to each set / item heading into the Vault, it is announced on the Battlefield Heroes website, and players are usually given a time-span of a few days to buy the items before they are removed. "Don't miss out" seems to be a clear message in the announcements.
Also, by making items unavailable, certain items that were perhaps not that popular may end up being considered as rare within the player base, thus become more interesting and tempting to have in a players unique customization.
What seems to be important to EAsy isn't just only to sell expensive items, but to sell more items than the player needs. A long time player who already has his personalized customization, with an item in each slot, may end up buying a new hat despite already having one, not because he liked the look of it better, but because it seemed to him as a more rare and unique item. Likewise, players on the fence as for whether or not to buy an item may find that the chance of the item never returning to the store again enough to make them click the Purchase button.
