Lions and Tigers, and check out those prices, oh my. It’s Halloween time, and with seven out of ten people expected to dress up for Halloween this year, pocketbooks may take a hit in order to be the best dressed witch at the monster ball.
However, at Thrift Town, it doesn’t cost a fortune to pull together the perfect Halloween look. There’s no better time than Halloween to become a creative beast, crafting a unique and frightfully sensational costume on a budget. Thrift Town, voted the best Thrift Store in many markets, believes in this so much, they’re rewarding creative and thrifty efforts with their annual HallowGreen contest!
This year Thrift Town is awarding a total of $450.00 in gift cards to people who wear secondhand costumes, create costumes from secondhand items or decorate with secondhand items. The contest boasts over nine categories that includes costumes, décor and pets. Top prize for the Most Creative Costume is a $100 Thrift Town Gift Card, and of course, bragging rights. Contest details and entry forms are available http://www.thrifttown.com/sales-promotions/halloween/. Contest is currently underway, and ends November 15th, 2011. Secondhand costumes and items need not be purchased from Thrift Town to enter.
