HOUSTON- Whatever your imagination dreams up this Halloween, follow the red carpet at the family-owned and operated Frankel's Costume Shop in East Downtown. There, you can transform yourself into goblins, ghouls and superheroes.

The story began in Morty Frankel's little magic shop in 1950 when a customer wanted a skeleton costume. After zooming through some spooky good times over the decades, the Frankel family has decided to end its 67-year-old legacy.

A developer is buying the business as part of the EaDo Revitalization Project.
