DIY Halloween Shopping at my Favorite Thrift Store

by This is Carrie on October 12, 2011

While I love making Halloween costumes, outfitting a family of six in costumes made from scratch was just not a realistic goal this year.  So, I headed out to my local Savers Thrift store to pick up supplies for a “Semi-Homemade Halloween” and found way more Halloween awesomeness than I ever expected.  Check out the video to get a sneak peak at our Halloween Costume & Craft plans for this year and then check out Savers.com for tons more DIY Halloween ideas.

DIY Halloween : This Mama Makes Stuff from jakfoto productions on Vimeo.

Thanks to Kiera from Jakfoto for filming and editing my video debut. If you’re looking for someone for a video project, I highly recommend her. She was amazing to work with! But if she doesn’t get back to you for a few weeks, that’s because she’s traveling with a medical mission team right now, documenting their service and partnerships in Manipur, India.  I can’t wait to hear her stories.

You are darling in the video. I am visiting AZ and had my first Savers experience, super fun. Super nice staff, bonus. My dream that they will expand across the country, all the way to VA.

The two in Orange County are in Anaheim and La Mirada. Call me a thrifting junkie, but it’s my little slice of heaven.
