I don't carry every item of every supplier due to space, demand and common sense!

I will cherry pick the best items from the best suppliers based on quality and prices.If I don't believe I can offer you the customer,the best quality costume or accessory for a reasonable price then sorry I won't stock it !!

We are a small independent business....... "Small enough to care and big enough to cope !!"

The business, like many others started as just a hobby,making costumes for theatrical productions and shows but when the curtain comes down you have the question then of what you do with it all ?

So this is how it all began by the previous and very talented former owner.Costumes would be made,used for by local theatrical societies,schools etc and then rented out to the general public from then a private house.

After some years and costumes filling every room,loft and landing,the entire stock was then moved across the road into a small retail shop.

The story then continues outgrowing this shop and then in the mid 1990's moving to it's present location where we trade from today.

The original owner was put out to pasture in 2000 and that's where we bought the business and continue to strive and push through the same customer service standards and qualities that was the foundation that built the business in the 1980's.
So if you need Apartyshop then you have come to the right place !
