It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! Halloween of course!
When it comes to Costumes, Contests & Decor, Thrift Town has you covered!

We not only have endless DIY costume possibilities, but we also have actual costumes for infants to adults! (Hurry. While supplies last!) Check out our Halloween Pinterest Board for some more inspiration! Stuck?
Ask our crew! They’ll help you make up a great costume.

Click the link to see how you could win a $100/$50/$25 Thrift Town Gift Card for posting your costumes and decor on Instagram! See last year’s winner’s below.


Thrifted items spray painted black can make a big impact. Paint figurines, plates, candle holders or picture frames. You can google creepy photos and frame them up for a spooktacular effect.

Look for printable templates/stencils online – simply paint around them onto the white plates (or the opposite if you find black plates!) and hang on the walls.  {Thanks to  Better Homes & Gardens for the image & inspiration! }

 GHOSTLY GREETING: Create a spellbinding phantom to hover over yard or porch!


All you need is a thrifted white gown torn to shreds and enhanced with torn white plastic trash bags.  {Thanks to  Better Homes & Gardens for the image & inspiration! }
