Patch Picks: Last Minute Halloween Supplies in Newton
Halloween is only a few days away, and while you may have resisted getting candy or costumes until now- time is almost up. Here are our picks for where to pick up last minute Halloween supplies.
Candy – The easiest place to get candy is at one of the local grocery stores (Star Market, Shaws or Whole Foods) or at the drugstore (CVS or Walgreen’s). And if you want to save some money and have more self control than this author, buy your candy for next year at the beginning of November and stick it in the freezer.
Costumes - Halloween Extreme is open in Newton Upper Falls and is still chock full of costumes. You can also drive a little bit to Eastern Coast Costumes in Waltham or get fun costume pieces at Savers in West Roxbury.
Decorations – Again, the local branches of the national drugstore chains and Halloween Extreme have a lot of Halloween decorations still on hand. If you want to make your own, head to AC Moore in Dedham or Michael’s in Natick and get your craft on.
Pumpkins - All of the locations listed in our “Patch Picks for Picking a Pumpkin” still have a wide selection of pumpkins. But the earlier you go, the better the selection.
Gifts - Your college student can’t come haunt your house at Halloween? Trick him/her into still feeling loved by sending a treat from Indulge in Newton Highlands. The number of gift packages they have and the ease with which you can send them is downright spooky!
