Window of the Month: Costume Shopping!
Posted on by Greg Farr
October is upon us, which means it is time to start looking for the perfect halloween costume. If you’re looking to really stand out this at all the parties, instead of buying a costume this year, get some authentic items from the past. Pinterest is full of inspiration for DIY costumes from Antique or Thrift stores, but so are we. This post features some of our favorite costume ideas that can be found in the store. Additionally, our employees would be happy to help you on your search for a unique halloween costume.
Check out our variety of hats, as well as vintage clothes and accessories.
On the left is a photo of our current window, which includes a complete cowgirl costume, assembled with authentic found items from the store. It also features an entire shelf that is full of a variety of different hats, which is the perfect starting place if you’re still looking for ideas. Already know what you want to be? Chances are we have an item that will make your costume even more authentic!
