Find Home Décor and Halloween Costumes at the Dallas Children’s Theater Sale
 
(DALLAS, TX) – Get ready, get set for Halloween at the Costumes and Curiosities Sale! Dallas Children’s Theater (DCT) will convert its scene shop into a sale of great treasures on October 14 from 12:30 – 7:30 PM, and on October 15 from 12:30 – 6:30 PM. Over the years DCT has amassed an enormous collection of contemporary clothing, handmade costumes, household goods, specially designed objects, tools and even appliances. Patrons, friends, neighbors, theater professionals, families, and thrift shoppers are invited in to scour the racks and all welcome to come in and haggle for their finds. 
 
“This is a golden opportunity for people to make provisions for both Halloween and Christmas. Stock up on décor items and costumes and even gifts, while getting a really great deal. We want to sell as much as possible that weekend,” Osborne said.
 
DCT plans to sell half the costume stock and one third of the props housed in the theater. Clothing for sale will include vintage clothes, ballet costumes, wigs, robes, dresses from the 1950s, suits, and even Halloween costumes. Those in search of unique home décor, appliances like TVs or microwaves, or props for their own theater are also invited to stop by the sale. 
 
The sale is open to both the general public, and those attending a performance of GOOSEBUMPS THE MUSICAL: PHANTOM OF THE AUDITORIUM. Guests visiting the Rosewood Center for Family Arts for the sale only are required to come in through the front doors, and will walk through the production wing to find the sale. According to Osborne, the sale will be like any normal garage sale, except with wacky, costumey, theater stuff.
 
“Everyone will find something unique and different at the sale,” said Lyle Huchton, DCT’s Costume Shop Manager. “Because we’re a theater that custom makes everything we need, we have so much great inventory that’s just full of things you won’t find at a regular garage sale.”
