Frankenstein Halloween with oly-fun™

Categories: Bags and Totes, Halloween

Halloween is a time for fun and collecting candy in a bag themed to match your costume only doubles the fun. Another idea might be to go for a bag and costume mix-up. Carrying a bag that has nothing to do with your chosen costume could just be even more fun.
