Best Place to Find an Emergency Halloween Costume (2002)

Flossy McGrew's

Eleven months of the year, Flossy McGrew's blends right into a commercial stretch of South Broadway, another vintage-clothing shop among the funky fringe of Antique Row. But each October, the massive warehouse-like store becomes a must-stop destination for costume-happy shoppers who range from inspired and awestruck to panicked and overwhelmed, depending on the date and its proximity to Halloween. From sailor suits and authentic Victorian gowns to monkey masks and huge cowboy hats, Flossy's seems to have at least one of every kind of clothing article ever made. If you're not in a hurry, the place is a gas, whether you're just browsing or scouting the perfect outfit for the club, the concert or the PTA meeting.
