Carnival Costumes holds closing down sale

Fancy dress and party shop Carnival Costumes in Bristol, will be holding a mammoth closing down sale following the decision to close the store, after 13 ‘absolutely fantastic’ years in the party trade.

Owner Angela Wakely will be closing the doors for the final time on 31 July and is holding a massive stock sale in the run-up to the closure. Starting on 29 June, everything will  be priced to clear, with children’s costumes available for as little as £5 and adult packet costumes starting at £10. Accessories will be half price or less and fixtures and fittings will also be available.

“Making costumes had been my hobby for many years before opening the shop and this hobby became a very successful business,” said Angela. “It is sad to be closing but the time is right. Like many others, I have to close before the internet kills me off completely.”

Angela is planning to carry on making costumes for a number of her loyal customers, including drama teachers and a drag queen. “I also do a lot of alterations for my customers so, that will continue as well,” she said. “I hope to improve my golf handicap and take a few well-earned holidays!”
