The thrift store is a perfect place to pick up bits and pieces for a Halloween costume. This year my son wanted to be a cowboy. It all started with a hat that he just had to have. Then I worked on the rest of the pieces over a few months.
We just picked a pair of old jeans from his drawer. I am sure they were also a thrift store find at one time. The boots were the tricky part. It took me months to find some in his size at the thrift store. But when I did he was the happiest boy on earth.
What about those guns and the gun belt? Those were Daddy's when he was a little boy and have been passed down to my son. It just might be the most special touch to the entire costume.
