Kid Culture, Fancy Pants Kids and Play Me Mama Crafts have a fun, economic, creative and light-on-the-earth solution for you – the first Junction Costume Swap as part of National
|Fancy Pants Kids|
We’ve got your back in the costume department this year. Spend a fun early October Saturday afternoon with other parents and kids looking to discover some great finds and get rid of that never-to-be-worn again (by you) box of costumes, accessories and more in the spirit of upcycling.
“Everyone has a stash of costumes from Halloweens gone by that they don’t use any more,” says National Costume Swap Day organizer Robin Rivers. “We’re putting those old costumes to good use and making them new to you while helping families save money and live lightly.”
How it works: Bring your clean, gently used costumes to exchange and trade into the store from September 30th till October 12th. You will get an exchange ticket in the shop for every costume you bring in that allows you to go home with a new-to-you costume for your kids the day of the swap. No costumes to trade, no worries you’ll be charged a flat fee of $5 at the door (cash only) and you can pick out a costume. Proceeds will be benefitting The Salvation Army Evangeline Residence.
Organizers are also asking that you bring a new or gently used children’s book for Bookhunters.

The Junction Costume Swap is a part of National Costume Swap Day Canada celebration where communities throughout the country are helping families save money, create a
stronger sense of community and live lightly on the Earth this Halloween.
