It all must go! After 30 years supplying the community with costumes and props, Ralston Costume Company is closing shop.

"Everything has to go, they are taking a few things with them to their new location, but they are pretty much liquidating everything," said Shayne Fili, Auctioneer.

The Gullickson Family is leaving town. So in storage now -- years of history sit on shelves, hang on racks, and are piled in boxes.

"Many (costumes & props) have been used in plays. Every theater in Omaha has rented something from Ralston Costume at one time or another. They were a huge, huge hit with the community. They will be missed," said Fili.

The store supplied Omaha's theater community for 30 years, so just imagine in that amount of time what has been collected.

There is everything to dress someone head to toe, with over 10 thousand costumes up for sale.

But it's more than just clothes, it's all the accessories too.

"Make up, wigs, hats, hair, nails, shoes.," said Fili to list a few.

One catch is that there is no in-person preview of the items. The only way to view the items is by going to Proxibid.com
