Capital Costumes Commits To Selling Outfits On Halloween


Halloween is on a Monday, and one of Sacramento’s oldest costume shops will be renting and selling right up until the bewitching hours.

Capital Costumes was established on K Street in 1910 to supply costumes to stage shows in Northern California.

The business grew and changed hands a few times over the decades and in 1980, Arlene Silva and her daughter Anna became the new owners.

Anna’s sister Alicia joined in 1989. This is the busiest week of the year for Capital Costumes.

Silva talks about Halloween trends and the shop’s enchanted history
