Sophia’s Costumes, celebrating its 30th year in business, is pleased to offer a huge selection of costume rentals and sales for 2011. With Halloween quickly approaching, they are busy as ever serving the residents of Fairfield County with premier costumes. In fact, they hired 8 additional employees just to handle the rush of customers.
They differentiate themselves from chain stores by offering vintage clothing, masquerade costumes and high quality period costumes, in addition to pop-culture themed and traditional Halloween costumes. Sophia Scarpelli started her business in 1981 with just one rack of clothing. Today, she offers around 5,000 unique costumes of all varieties for rent and for sale. Shopping at Sophia’s is also an experience that local residents treasure as part of the season.
She also has a huge collection of vintage clothing that she sells. Scarpelli says she gets 90% of her vintage merchandise, which includes antiques, costume jewelry and vintage glassware, from the people who have actually owned it or had it in their families. After thirty years of selling, she has become a well-known assessor of vintage merchandise for Fairfield residents. “I’m always looking for old and beautiful things to consign,” Scarpelli said, “so why not give me a call?”
"Really great things are valuable in this economy," she said. "I've seen the town change so much, and I've had to change with it to survive. But great clothes will never go out of style."
