After Halloween and on to Winter Holidays 2011

We're moving into November now, and Halloween season 2011 is all wrapped up! Whew! And while that means some more wintery and holiday-ish items will take the forefront at our New York Costumes shop, we've still got the classic scary vibe in effect:





As a matter of fact, we even have some new creepy decorations hanging around after the Halloween season:



But as the weather gets colder, the days get shorter, and the time of holiday cheer approaches, we get into the winter holiday spirit:


More to come as we move further into November and then December.
Keeping it warm and bright as winter creeps in!

Dynamic Web Inventory is Live!


After months of overhauls and updates, our dynamic web-viewable inventory is now live on NewYorkCostumes.com! We've been working hard to get tons of our in-store products up on our inventory page, where customers can check the stock status of items in our shop. Though we don't yet have every item up online yet, we do have a LOT up there.
You can see the dynamic inventory pages here: New York Costumes Inventory.
Tony also made a bunchy of very nice buttons for the different departments in the inventory. Here are but a few:



The inventory site has both browse and a search options, along with photos of the items listed. One thing the inventory site is not is a web store; there is no shopping cart or check-out feature, and it is not for placing orders online. Rather, it exists to give visitors an idea of what we've got in stock in our splendid brick & mortar shop here in Manhattan's East Village. More store products are being uploaded to the inventory site every day.
Check it out, get an idea of what products are in stock, and come on down to the store to enjoy the crazy and creepy atmosphere of the physical shop itself!
