Halloween is upon us again and it’s time for the guys and ghouls to dress in their most creative costumes. Competition is stiff, so step it up a notch by decorating your home. There are local supply stores that have just what you need to decorate your interior, exterior and anything else you can think of. Buy a pre-made decoration or fashion one yourself. It’s all in how you choose to express yourself.

It figures that the same state that originated Halloween Horror Nights and Howl-O-Scream annual frightfests would have its Halloween headquarters set up in Florida. The Halloween Megastore is located in Central and South Florida and offers a variety of quality-made costumes, decorations and more. So you can darken your doorstep, decorate your deck and even implement a thematic schematic. The options are endless when you have an almost unlimited supply of choices and three South Florida locations to serve you.

Crazy For Costumes
1343 S.W. 8th St.
Miami, FL 33135
(305) 858-5029

Crazy For Costumes offers a bit of convenience for those looking to skip the trip to the store. You can shop online for its extensive costume collection or you can go in store. However, those looking to buy decorations online will be in for an unpleasant surprise because the online decoration list is minuscule in comparison to the in-store selection. Either way, you can pick up props like scarecrows, fake pumpkins and more. It’s well worth the short drive and the staff is bilingual, which makes shopping a breeze for everyone.

This & That Shop
3155 Commodore Plaza
Miami, FL 33133
(305) 448-2114

The This & That Shop is the oddest addition to the list because it’s a product of the Plymouth Congregational Church. While church and Halloween may be at odds with each other, this little shop does have some adorable decorations. The decorations are set out two weeks before Halloween and include trinkets like pottery and more. If you’re looking for a cute Halloween theme, this is the shop for you.
