Im debating on if to sell my costume from last year or not. I did spend alot of money on it and I think I could sell it on ebay or somewhere. What do you guys do? Keep it for sentimental reasons or get rid of it?!
I keep'em and then recycle/ reuse them over the years.
I have lent out a few here and there.
One year my brother showed up with out , so I said dig something out of the closet.
He went in the WRONG closet and pulled out some sweaters from the 80's....

My Family has donated to a local community center in the past 6-7 years or sold them at a yard sale in prior years.

I do under certain circumstances. If I do not use it for a prop or something. I have sold a few to friends that really want them.

I do keep most though and I have a huge collection of costumes and accessories.
