I had a small costume shop attached to my Motel in a small town, and just got into it for something to keep me busier in the slow months. Wasn't expecting it to boom at Halloween like it did, but was pleasantly surprised.

The rest of the year I rented to schools, churches, for the Holidays. To be honest I didn't make big money off the costume shop, as all of a sudden I had goodwill, and other Halloween shops coming in just for Halloween, so my business lost some, but I was hooked line and sinker, as it brought the creativity out in me. I made hats, decorated boots and shoes, made accessories of all kinds. Enjoyed that part of it immensly. Now, I am retired and am quilting, active in church and just trying to be a good Christ like person and give Glory to God.
