Let’s get the introductions out of the way….First, my name is DeeAnna and I’m the newest contributor here at Thrifting Denver. I can’t wait to show you all of the wonderful things I have re-loved and re-created from Goodwill items. It all started about a year and a half ago when I was in a car accident and the recovery that followed. I couldn’t drive for six months due to a brain injury, I had A LOT of time on my hands and I found myself reading all kinds of blogs. I stumbled across Eddie Ross and he was always talking about shopping at Goodwill. I don’t think I had ever been in a store prior to that. I walked in promptly found a Michael Kors tunic with the tags still attached for $4.99, and I have been hooked ever since! I started my own blog September the March a year ago and then A Little Junk In My Trunk came about in January, a blog about All Things Goodwill and my quest to find the ever elusive Dale of Norway sweater! Enough about me, let’s get shopping.
Good Afternoon Ghost Bustahs……..
I had something a little different in mind than the pre-made variety. Keeping in mind that schools have a “no gore” policy, and we are keeping the little girls covered up, I came up with some appropriate costumes with a little money and a bit of imagination.
I say Sally Draper, but you can call her “1950′s Girl”.
Brilliant Doctor, Caring Veterinarian, Hard Working Nurse
Every Goodwill has a large section of scrubs for you to choose from. Prices range from $3.99 to $6.99
Princess Leah with the fabulous cinnamon roll buns on her head!
Costume from Goodwill on Belleview ($4.99)
(I think this is an “angel” or “queen” costume that we added suede boots and cool cinnamon roll buns that were twisted by me.)
With a little imagination and some good searching skills you can put together a modest, fun and appropriate costume for your little girl or boy!
Shop Goodwill first and see what you can put together. Come back for more costumes as we start the countdown to Halloween!
