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

We're now at lovely new purpose built premises in Alsager and our online store is up and running too, so now you can shop with us whenever it suits you. You can of course still visit us by appointment - just give us a call beforehand, we'd hate you to have a wasted journey!

More than ever we are passionate about all that we do and we hope (no pun intended) this shows. We stock over 1,000 fancy dress costumes, many of which are unique one-offs, vintage or handmade. We are confident 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).

It's the little finishing touches that make all the difference, and we stock literally thousands of accessories and props to complete your perfect look. Wigs, hats, jewellery even, to give your outfit that extra charm. 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 do get in touch and 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. Hope is Claire's youngest daughter and brings boundless energy and enthusiasm to our store, and 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 our lovable four legged friends, Gatsby and Jack (black) who bring a smile to everyone’s face and an enthusiastic welcome.

Don’t be a stranger, 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'll do our very best to help.
