Pumpkins, spider webs, and witches have appeared across homes and stores all over, which means Spooky season is here! Did you know Halloween is the United States’ second-biggest commercial holiday behind Christmas? While ghosts, goblins, and ghouls may be frightening, what Americans spent on Halloween in 2021 may be even scarier. According to Yahoo Finance, Americans spent $6.5 billion on Halloween decorations and costumes, not counting an additional $3 billion on candy! This year is projected to hit the same staggering numbers. Luckily for you, St. Vincent de Paul thrift stores are here to save your wallet from frighteningly expensive Halloween decor and costumes.
SVdPLA thrift stores can be your go-to store for all things Halloween. Shoppers especially love getting gently used costumes ready for the entire family to wear, ranging from children- babies and toddlers- youth and adults. Or for those who prefer to wow their family and friends with a DIY costume, our large clothing department is filled with staple pieces to help bring their vision to life! Not to mention the wide selection of accessories to help pull a costume together, or Halloween bags for trick-or-treating.
We can’t talk about Halloween without mentioning creepy home decor items like giant fuzzy spiders, tombstones, witches, etc. You can count on SVdPLA for home decor items with slashed pricing compared to large retail stores. Not to mention the vast array of autumnal-themed items for those who prefer going with more fall-specific decor. There’s something in stores for everyone, and we release new items regularly to keep up with the demand.
Suppose you don’t end up shopping with us for your Halloween needs; we kindly ask that you consider donating old and gently used costumes instead of throwing them away. Did you know that nearly 85% of costumes end up in landfills? Don’t be part of that statistic and choose to donate seasonal items instead!
Save your wallets and our planet by purchasing and donating gently used seasonal items!
