A Little About Us
Debra Ordway started sewing and renting costumes in the early 1990’s in Boulder, CO from her basement. Debra had been a licensed beautician and sewer her whole life. ¬†Finally, in 2005, Debra opened a shop at the first location to pursue her passion of selling, and renting costumes, wigs, makeup, masks, hats, and accessories in north Boulder at the Diagonal Plaza Mall on 28th Street and Diagonal.¬†Her husband, Richard, has an MBA (Master in Business Administration), and retired from his career to join her at the store. The¬†focus was on excellent customer service.
In 2009, the store moved to the Table Mesa Shopping Center off Broadway and Table Mesa in Boulder. The new space is bigger and has much more customer activity. The store massively expanded its inventory, organization, and tripled its number of employees.
Recently, Anna their daughter, joined the store in 2011 after receiving a four year marketing degree. She has also been involved in the costume business for many years.
In 2012, Theatrical Costumes, ETC! added a huge new adjacent store which tripled inventory and tripled space.
The current focus is on¬†completing our new inventory system and fostering a fun and respectful atmosphere. The current goals are to provide the best of the best in customer satisfaction as well as providing a unique variety of costumes and accessories that can’t be found elsewhere.
