Halloween is a mere TWO days away and you still don’t have a costume. Never fear! You can always become a refrigerator for Halloween.

This costume will be the talk of the party, not to mention, gives you some space to enjoy some Halloween sweet treats!

Congrats to Richard Linnert who had Pennsylvania’s Oldest Fridge! He recycled a Frigidaire that was made by General Motors in 1937. In addition to receiving a rebate from Duquesne Light, he also won a $1000 gift card to Sears!
