Beloved Fancy That! Costumes & Balloons is getting a fabulous new location and they’re throwing a party to celebrate!

For over 35 years, Fancy That! Costumes & Balloons has been a hidden gem in the community, dressing up residents of all ages for every occasion. Founded in 1987, the store has become a go-to for high-quality costumes, balloons, and exceptional service.

Owner Belinda Marsh, a former marketing director who traded spreadsheets for sequins, is passionate about the power of play. “We’re on a mission to help people rediscover the joy of play, especially adults,” says Belinda.  “Life is meant to be celebrated, and that’s where we come in!”

“You’ve got to really love people,” says Belinda of running Fancy That! “You have to love helping customers celebrate, and love being of service to the local community.”

“If you’re a retail business that’s going to compete with the big online players, you really have to be a standout,” says Belinda. “And with well over 600 five-star Google reviews, our customers speak for us.”

Fancy That have a huge range of costumes and accessories to buy in-store plus an expanded sales range online. They also maintain a lovingly curated costume hire range in-store where you can be styled by one of their experts, plus the bespoke balloon service where they will customise bouquets and displays for your special event.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 23, because Fancy That! is moving to a brand new, conveniently located spot on Level 1, 28 Willoughby Rd, Crows Nest (right next to El Jannah & Gelatissimo).  To celebrate the grand reopening, they’re hosting a fun-filled event from 10am to 4pm.
