Don’t Let the Deals Startle You … Goodwill is Your Halloween Headquarters

At Goodwill, bargains just jump out at you, but there’s nothing to fear. Halloween-themed merchandise can now be found in our 28 stores across Middle and West Tennessee. Each year, millions of people come to Goodwill to find the pieces they need to create amazing DIY Halloween costumes for less. Whether you are looking for the perfect white shirt to complete a pirate costume or a vintage gown to become a zombie princess, Goodwill has the clothing, shoes and accessories you need. You’ll also find plenty of Halloween-themed decor as well as some pre-assembled costumes. And the low everyday prices will have you baying at the moon.


  • Have some costume ideas in mind before you go shopping. The Internet is a great place to find inspiration for a do-it-yourself costume that will be uniquely you

  • Set aside time to shop, so you can find the pieces that work best for your costume.

  • Make a list of the items you need before going shopping. This will keep you focused on your costume (there’s a lot to see at Goodwill!) and also prevent you from forgetting a crucial item.

  • Use your imagination and keep an open mind — everyday clothing items and accessories can often be altered, resized or repurposed to create something entirely new.

  • Shop all sections of the store. Costume pieces for women can often be found in the men’s section, and vise-versa. Useful items and fabrics can also be found in the children’s section.

  • Shop Goodwill’s discounts, such as the 50 percent off color-of-the-week, to save even more money.

  • Don’t forget the rest of the store! Goodwill’s home goods and book sections are full of items that can be used or repurposed as costume props or Halloween decor!
