SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ- With Halloween just around the corner, now’s the perfect time to stop in at the Fanwood-Scotch Plains Service League Thrift Shop in Scotch Plains to put together great festive costumes for the whole family. The shop’s annual Halloween costume sale starts Tuesday, October 2, at 10 AM when racks will be filled with costume choices in a wide range of sizes.
Costume accessories like masks, hats, scarves, shoes, gloves, and other props will also be available along with some vintage clothing items. Merchandise will be replenished throughout the week. Go with tradition and be a hobo, a princess, a hipster, a witch, or unlock your creativity to become whatever you can imagine using the reasonably priced selections as a starting point.
If you’re looking for something in particular, shop volunteers will be happy to assist by checking the stock not yet on display. If you’re looking to dress that perfect scarecrow, the shop always has plenty of flannel shirts and jeans on hand at modest prices.
Along with the Halloween costume sale this year, the shop will offer a first-ever “Great Pumpkin Mystery Discount” for all shoppers from Tuesday, October 9 thru Saturday, October 13. Shoppers will complete their orders, then select a surprise discount ticket from the “Great Pumpkin” to get money off or free items, with one lucky customer during the week getting an entire order for free. Customers may use only one surprise discount per day during the sale.
