Fancy Dress outfits for sale

I have a fancy dress business which I am in the process of selling. I have sold some outfits already to local theatre groups but still have over 150+ costumes left for sale. Prices are mainly £10 per costume so are very cheap. All the outfits are hand made adult costumes as they were made by the previous owner for the gang show and local theatre groups. They cover many genres such as uniforms, characters, eras, Egyptian, and quite a few costumes suitable for the panto season.

If anyone is interested in the costumes for their theatre group please contact me and we can arrange to meet and view them?

Donkey Costume

I currently work at Sidmouth Primary School Hull) in year 6. We have recently begun practicing our lines for our upcoming leavers play.
One of our scenes involves a reenactment of the nativity. In the scene, there is a donkey. However, we do not have such a costume (double donkey costume) at our disposal, and the cost of one is extortionate. I am writing to ask if anyone happens to have one - or know anywhere we could borrow one - for us to use in our play?

Costumes and Props

My Mum ran an Olde Tyme Music Hall group in Chelmsford for several years where all proceeds were donated to the Air Ambulance.
Over this time she has collected a substantial collection of props (mainly hats, jackets, feather boas, birdcage etc).

Unfortunately she is no longer well enough to run the group, and I am looking for someone who could make good use of this collection.

I'd rather give them for free to a group that would use them, I just wouldn't want to donate and then see them sold (happens a lot on local recycling groups).

If you know of anyone who would be interested, please let me know

Kind regards
