Fairytale Costumes auctions off costumes as store closes

It's hard to believe but we're roughly a month away from Halloween, but if you are looking for costume ideas, there's a chance to get several for cheap.


For the next two days a Fairytale Costumes, costume store is holding a liquidation auction. Shayne Fili who runs Auctions Solutions is helping the story by selling off lots to bidders.

"It's just a lot of fun. We get to try on the costumes and we pick out what we want as well. We compete against our online and live buyers so it's a lot of fun," she said.

It's Halloween costumes for cheap, but you have to be ready to move fast to beat the competition. Thanks to the internet, now most of the quick bidding is done online.

"You can pick when you want to go. If the auctioneer is selling so many items per hour, you may not want to watch your proxy bid for a couple of hours.

Then know at three o'clock you need to step on and start bidding on the items that you like," she said. Friday and Saturday, 1100 lots, each with a few costumes a piece, are up for grabs.

Some sold Friday morning for a little as $2.50. Fili says they're clearing about 95 lots and hour. The auction kicks off again Saturday at 10 am.
