[Frankel’s Costume]

Frankel’s Costume Company, now at 2801 Polk Street, began in 1950 as Morty’s Magic Mart, a magic store located at 808 Texas Ave., in downtown Houston. Owner Morty Frankel’s wife, Leola, started making costumes for the shop’s customers, and soon the costume business required its own location. A third generation of Frankels runs the costume store these days, and the store’s Polk Street location – where the business relocated in 2000 – occupies an entire city block in the warehouse district east of downtown. The store still sells magic tricks, too.
