Here’s your chance to own a piece of magic from Houston’s iconic Frankel’s Costume Shop

Magic fans have a unique opportunity to bid on vintage magic items owned by Lonnie Frankel – as in Frankel’s Costume Shop.

Thousands of items, from makeup to special magicians’ tools, are up for grabs from Frankel’s personal collection. Frankel helped run the now-shuttered Frankel’s Costume Shop, a family business and Houston staple since 1950.

In 2018, the shop closed after nearly 70 years in business. Now, two years after the closing, fans can get their hands on one-of-a-kind items owned by Lonnie Frankel at an auction.

The auction will be 9 a.m. Jan. 11 at Gallery Auction at 13310 Luthe Road in north Houston. For more information, and to see more pieces in the auction, visit the Gallery Auction website.
