The Garment District (for Halloween)


Garment DistrictWe’ve reached the ominous-sounding episode 13 of the show just in time for Halloween! And to celebrate Halloween, I paid a visit to the Garment District: a huge clothing and costume store in Kendall Square.

Every year right before Halloween, you start to see posters on the T for the Garment District. Then you start to see tons of people carrying pink bags with the store’s logo and all sorts of fun stuff inside.

For the last 20 years, this former rag factory has been selling the clothes they used to cut up — and not just for Halloween costumes. Every day, they have more than 40,000 pieces of vintage and contemporary clothing on display on two floors of the old factory.

To find out what it is like to be at the epicenter of Boston’s Halloween, I stopped by last week for a chat with the manager.

I love it- never before thought of The Garment District as “the epicenter of Boston’s Halloween”! That place is fun. Did I miss the photo of the BBTS host in one of his new costumes

What a great place to go searching for the perfect outfit! I wonder what YOU ended up with….
You have a great voice… do you have your picture on line?….in case we see you on the street.
