Here at H.O.P.E – Home. Occasions. People. Events, we have something for everyone – whether it’s for a crazy fancy dress party or a gift for that special someone.

The times they are a-changin though! The time has come for us to move on and we are now at new premises in Alsager, and to make it even easier we have a brand new online store too, so now you can shop when it suits you best. You can of course still visit us - just give us a bell to let us know you are on your way.

We are passionate about all that we do and we hope (no pun intended) this shines through to our customers. With over 1,000 fancy dress costumes in stock, many of which are unique one-offs, vintage or handmade, we are sure we will have what you are looking for and if we don’t then we will try and find it! Their popularity isn’t just limited to fancy dress parties but to stag and hen do’s, office parties and even a day at the races! Whatever happened to top hat and tails? (We have them too by the way). We also have all the accessories to complete the look, wigs, hats, jewellery to give your outfit that extra zing. Lenses, face paints, hairspray, latex make up too - Halloween is our speciality! If you can't find what you're looking for in our online store, then please either drop us a line or call us - let us know what you need, we love a challenge!

Who Are We?

H.O.P.E has the family at its very heart and it’s something we are extremely proud of. Claire is the face of H.O.P.E and her passion and skills shine through every area of the business. With a background in retail she has an eye for unusual and stylish gifts as well as making sure all her customers leave happy.

Then there’s Poppy, Claire’s eldest daughter. Whilst you won’t always see her in the shop she makes her presence felt in so many other ways and can often be seen manning the stall at the numerous craft fairs and Artisan markets we attend. Finally, meet Hope, the latest addition to the H.O.P.E family dynasty. Hope is Claire's youngest daughter and brings with her not only boundless energy and enthusiasm but heaps of experience too. We are sure that Hope will prove to be an instant success at H.0.P.E and hope that you pop in soon to say hello (We hope you agree with us that's quite enough hope's for now from H.O.P.E and hope that Hope thinks so too!). .

Last but by no means least there’s Gatsby – our loveable dog who brings a smile to everyone’s face whenever she makes an appearance.

Don’t be shy, we would love to see you and if there’s something specific you are interested in that you haven’t seen then give us a call or drop us an email and we are sure we can help.
