0 The Ultimate Halloween Party | One Table - Three Ways

This post is in partnership with Value Village, part of Savers family of thrift stores which includes Value Village stores in the U.S. and Canada, Savers stores in the U.S., Village Des Valeurs stores in Quebec and Unique Thrift stores in the U.S. During Halloween, stores stock their shelves with new packaged costumes, makeup, wigs, accessories and home decor – perfect to combine with the secondhand clothing and accessories. It’s absolutely your one-stop shop for Halloween. Go to the store locators at www.valuevillage.com or www.savers.com to find a thrift store near you.

When asked by Value Village to create a spooky tablescape for their Ultimate Halloween Party on Pinterest, we were so down! Not only is Halloween one of our favorite occasions, but Value Village is an amazing place to visit for all things ghost and goblin—have you been there this time of year? We also love the impact they make on local communities. Value Village partners with nonprofit organizations in each community where they have stores. Last year alone, they paid nearly $200 million to its nonprofit partners for donations of clothing and household goods, and $1.5 billion over the last 10 years. Plus thrifting makes an amazing impact on the environment. Value Village keeps more than 650 million pounds of reusable goods from landfills each year- the equivalent in weight to more than 13,000 Redwood trees!
