But I'm Always Here Looking At This Stuff...
Earlier this week an old friend of mine wrote to me and asked if I could help her put together a last-minute Halloween Costume for she and her husband who had just been invited to a party. I was at once flattered, but, also mortified, as she cited all the 1960's and 1970's items in my shop as her reason for thinking of me.
SAVERS a lot of credit for what they've done with Halloween. Many people still trek to Thrift shops in search of Halloween costumes. (It's so dang crowded at all of them this week - and all the good stuff is gone!) SAVERS has embraced this audience and run with it! They now seasonally stock discounted Halloween costumes and accessories making them a one-stop shopping destination for all your bargain Halloween needs. They even have sections of their web-site highlighting not only pre-fab costumes they stock, but, costume ideas for using vintage clothing. I find this to be very clever on their part. Of course, the guy above probably made it harder for me to find good "Sonny" accessories at SAVERS this week, but, I like a challenge.
