Whatever your poison this Halloween, you’re going to be in need of a costume. You can chose the traditional route and pick something up at a costume shop (yawn), or you can get creative and pull together a stellar costume from some scarily cheap & trendy vintage stores in the city:
Cabaret is a hot spot for celebrities when they come into town, and, ss a result, you may sometimes snag a great piece that a celebrity ditched earlier. Cabaret has racks of great clothes at a low price and they have a huge selection of costume jewelery waiting to be found.
69 Vintage offers that perfect jacket or accessory for any night out. You may come in to find some fingerless gloves for your hobo outfit, and end up leaving with a new pea coat.
Common Sort isn’t just a vintage clothing store – it’s a place where you can buy, sell or trade any article of clothing. This means that you may be able to get your entire Halloween outfit (plus a few goodies) for free if you bring in some of your used clothes.
The Cat’s Meow is a vintage clothing store that deals with clothes made anywhere from the 1920’s to the 1980’s. The bulk of their selection is from the 1950-1970’s so this is the perfect store if you’re looking to channel that era.
This store caters mainly to the ladies, so guys looking for some costume ideas may be disappointed. However, if your plans are to be a glamorous diva or something equally high-end, this would be a good place to look.
Franny Vintage is the perfect place to go if you’re hunting for that detail to make your costume stand out. They have shoes, bags and other accessories that can add to any outfit. Do you have the Jimmy Hendrix outfit but need the huge boots? Franny’s will have exactly what you’re looking for.
