Getting Wiggy

A Cambridge vintage shop is stocking more costumes - just in time for the big night.

Don't have a ghost of an idea of what to wear for Halloween? Stop the boohooing, and head over to Great Eastern Trading Company in Cambridge, a decades-old vintage store with a newly expanded costume inventory. Owner Marlene Clauss stocks items that are special rather than spooky, such as Venetian masks, '20s flapper dresses, and Johnny Depp-worthy pirate gear. Women really go for the store's selection of giant wings (from $10), says Clauss. They help make any costume take off.
