EASLEY'S FUN SHOP is located at 7th Avenue and McDowell Road in downtown Phoenix. We are a family business operated by the 2nd 3rd and 4th generations of the Easley family. We have been in business for 71 years and pride ourselves on our customer service and our love for our business. Bert Easley, 1st generation and our founder was a Vaudeville Magician and entrepreneur. He started a small magic store in downtown Phoenix in 1947. Bert then added Gag gifts, novelties, over the hill jokes and some mild adult jokes. As the business grew, other exciting things were added such as theatrical makeup, hats, wigs and many costume accessories.

2nd generation had the foresight to add costumes, not only for rent, but for sale. 3rd generation developed the website and we are very excited to see where 4th generation takes us. Our store is over 15,000 square feet of wonderful fun. We stock hundreds of different kinds of wigs and hats. There are thousands of different costume accessories items available and we carry a full line of theatrical makeup featuring Ben Nye, but also including Kryolan, Wolf Brothers, Mehron and many others. We have on site and available over 5,000 costumes in our rental department and by September usually average about 10,000 different costumes for sale. Our rental costumes are primarily adult sizes, but our retail costumes range from newborn size to plus size adult and from tiny Chihuahuas to great Danes. We can virtually fit the whole family, 2 legged and 4.

Every day is a special day at Easley's but we also specialize in the more familiar holidays. Bring in the New Year with hats and party favors, costumes and masks. Dont forget to dress in something special for your Valentine! Mardi Gras is fabulous fun, from selling beads (we are the largest Mardi Gras bead importer in the state of Arizona), to getting fully dressed in an

elaborate costume, to being the King of the ball. St. Patrick's Day is always fun and green beads, green hairspray, and leprechaun costumes can turn it into a real party. For Easter, we sell and rent Easter Bunny costumes and sell everything necessary for all participants in the passion play at church. As proud Americans, we always have red, white and blue beads, hats, wigs, costumes, makeup and much more for Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day. The real party starts in the fall when everyone is getting ready for Halloween, "El Día de los Muertos" (Day of the Dead or All Souls' Day), and we can provide costumes for all of them.

Halloween is our busiest time of the year and the fun starts the first of September. The store is full of new and exciting things, from crazy costumes, new kinds of hats, beautiful wigs, more makeup, accessories of all kinds, Halloween props and "anything and everything" new for the season. After Halloween, you must be wondering what we do... well, we rent Turkeys and have the largest selection of Christmas costumes in the valley for rent and for sale. Its not just about Santa anymore, he needs helpers, elves and Mrs. Claus too. Its also the celebration of the birth of Christ for many people, so we have costumes and accessories for the entire cast of the manger scene.

Not everything is available on our website because it's difficult to keep up with all the new products coming and going in and out of the store, but there is a good variety on the web that will give you some great ideas. There are a number of special order items on our site that are not available in the store. We have some superb manufacturers all over the country, and although we don't have enough room to stock everything everyone sells, we trust in their product and will get it shipped to you.

Dear Friends, Easley’s officially announced on April 5th,2018 that we will be closing on December 30th on Facebook. This not only alerted the media but many friends, family, & long-time customers and even new customers that didn’t know about us. Bert Easley opened the Fun Shop in 1947 after retiring from becoming the most amazing magic performer of his time. Over the past 70 years, thank not only to Bert, but to his son Herb, Easley’s has grown to become one of the largest independent costume shops in the country. In 1996 Brian Murphy (Debbie Easley’s Husband) started our website which has given Easley’s the ability o not only sell locally, but globally. The Easley family was happily growing selling fun. Although the internet started as a fun new potential growth, competition soon became fierce and as technology advanced we tried to keep up but our focus has always been on those customer that came into the store. Helping people face to face, whether it was with a magic trick, a fun & harmless joke to play on a friend, stage makeup for our talented performers, accessories to complete that perfect costume look or complete costumes dressing our wonderful customers from head to toe. The Easley family takes great pride in hand selecting the best quality products to sell. Buying not from photos in a book or online but actually seeing our products in person, confirming that the quality is not only good enough for our family but also for our customers. In this ever-changing world we’ve come to realize that our specialty- face to face service is not as important as it once was, shopping is trending toward buying a photo of what a customer needs & having it delivered. So, although we have decided to close our physical store at 509 W McDowell Rd, we will be closing down at the end of 2018, the experience & support for the community will go on. Our website will remain. Debbie Easley will always be available to answer questions & help in any way via email ( or text 602-315-8038 or come by the store. Easley’s still plans on participating in Phoenix Comic-Fest, Phoenix Pride Parade and who knows, we may even open up a Halloween Store or two in the future. We are open Tuesday through Friday 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays & Mondays we are closed.
