Swap Halloween costumes Saturday, and make the holiday ‘greener’
October 7, 2010
NEW — 10 a.m. Oct. 7, 2010
Halloween costumes get worn once — maybe twice if a younger sibling is willing to try the costume another year.
Why not pass along costumes from Halloweens past on National Costume Swap Day, Saturday, in Issaquah?
Snoqualmie Valley Macaroni Kid, a family-oriented website, has joined Issaquah businesses Small Threads and Adventure Kids Playcare to bring the national event here.
Through the efforts of the grassroots nonprofit organization Green Halloween, families in the area can take a “greener” approach to the holiday by recycling and reusing old costumes.
Drop off your swap-able costumes at Small Threads, 1480 N.W. Gilman Blvd., No. 3, during business hours through Friday.
In exchange for the costume, participants receive a swap ticket to be brought back for the event Saturday from 8-10 a.m. at the store.
