The Maskers Theater, on Belfast’s waterfront, will host a grand sale Saturday, April 23, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m, in an effort to thin out its overstuffed costume lofts.

During this “theatrical rummage sale” costumed actors will mingle with shoppers, offering encouragement, advice and entertainment.

Along with everyday pants, sweaters and jackets, shoppers will find exotic one-of-a-kind items, like a heavy, ethnic woolen patchwork garment in earthy tones, or a purple tweed cape from Ireland. Vintage style is in, and one lucky shopper could walk out with an exquisite Givenchy red-and-black silk dress, perhaps topped off with a fur stole; several furs are being offered.

Or how about a knee-length black vest, heavily crusted with tiny ivory beads? And hats. There are hats galore. Some are perfect for children’s dress-up, others could add the finishing touch to a vintage outfit.

“The costume loft has been filled to overflowing for quite some time,” said Aynne Ames, artistic director of the 21-year-old community theater company. “This gives us a great chance to reorganize and make space, and give people a chance to pick up bargains and some outrageously fun outfits.”
