Depending on your haunts theme i would definetly go to goodwill or salvation army grab some stuff and age the hell out of them, or talk to the manager of the store for every item they put out there is two or three items they reject, thats when you swoop in for the kill, hell it may only cost you some tickets!!!!

In addition to second hand stores Estate sales are also good shopping grounds for costumes. Don't think about what it looks like, think about what it will look like after you have destroyed it. :)

One EBay note, vintage can actually mean its a real item from the time period. My wife won't touch the two "vintage" civil war mourning gowns I have. They creep her out....

Jason is 100% right! I furnished an entire asylum and a haunted hotel (@30 actors) for $100 bucks at a good will! Just dirty them and bloody - voila!
What are you themes? Maybe we can all help you with changing everyday clothes into costumes! (And they last a lot longer too!)
