costumes and chickens

I needed to get something for a costume for Erin and since it is not October, we ended up heading into Chicago proper at the Chicago Costume Company located at Cicero (4800W) and Montrose (4400N).

It was weird pulling into the 6 stall parking lot behind the building as it involved a ramp from the street. When we got out of the car, we heard a sound that you just don't hear in Chicago. I looked and saw a chicken coop with at least one dozen chickens.

We walked around to the front of the building and noticed the costume shop shares the building with a store that sells golf equipment. I was amazed by everything they had from masks to props to wigs to full outfits and they had the thing my daughter needed for less than the price I saw on line. I had to take one pic inside the store:
