Local Candy & Costumes

Candy and costumes are Halloween necessities, and most of us purchase those items at chain department stores. So this year, we here at Silicon Beach Homes wanted to share some local businesses that sell all the Halloween must-haves!


1. AusSam Candy

Childhood best friends Austin and Sam are the owners of AusSam Candy in Granada Hills. The store has tons of candy, and they even have candy specifically for Halloween.


Shoppers can purchase candy in bulk to pass out to trick-or-treaters, and there are also candies perfect for Halloween parties. Give your guests candy-filled Halloween mugs as party favors, stick pumpkin-shaped chocolate lollipops in cupcakes as a bonus treat, and get an assortment of caramel apples for some variety.


2. Etsy Treats

Etsy may not be the first place you think of for Halloween treats, but Los Angeles foodies also sell online.


If you enjoy making baked goods for your Halloween parties, the SweetTreatStencils Etsy shop has spooky sprinkles to make your baked goods Halloween-ready. Surprise your guests with the Monster’s Bash Sprinkle Mix or take the classic route and purchase the Hocus Pocus Sprinkle Mix.


ShuppeeSugarTreats has super fun chocolate-covered pretzel rods decorated for Halloween. There are Frankenstein pretzels, ghosts, and mummies, too, and you can even get an assortment if you can’t decide on just one! 


There are also terrifying eyeballs on the ShuppeeSugarTreats shop that are incredible cupcake decorations for those of you who enjoy a creepier Halloween vibe!


For anyone that is looking for a Halloween gift for a specific person, VeesTreatsLA has you covered. You can find a mini coffin of sweet Halloween-themed treats for your family, friends, partner, etc., on their shop’s site. It is important to note that there is a limited supply of these goodies, and they are only available for pick-up or drop-off in specific locations in LA.


3. Etsy Costumes

All sorts of wonderfully talented creators sell their clothing through their Etsy shops. Since there are so many local small businesses selling online, buyers can choose from a vast selection of costumes all in one place.


Loverdoversclothing sells the most adorable princess aprons and dresses for both kids and adults. Whether you’re looking for a pretty Princess Peach dress or an easy-to-wear Cinderella costume, loverdoversclothing has got you covered.


PrintOnBoutique also has costumes for the little ones and grownups. Dress the whole family like cozy zebras and scaly snakes, or transform into Cruella de Vil and wander through haunted mazes with your dalmatian puppies.


EddiesPrintShopUS is the new go-to shop for group Halloween costumes. Dress up as crayons with the kids, transform into real-life Pac-Man, or become your favorite candy. EddiesPrintShopUS’s costumes are perfect for anyone looking for a comfortable costume.


Couples and groups that are also looking for simpler costumes will appreciate PacificPrintCo. You and your partner can dress up as cute ghosts and pumpkins, and there are group pumpkin shirts as well!


If you’re not interested in dressing up, but you still want to be festive, grab Halloween facemasks or wristlets from NormasBagsandStuff. There are also fun holiday bandanas for pets! For more pet costumes, browse 

IcecreamtreeStudio’s Etsy shop. My personal favorite is this Pink Camera Necklace. Little furry photographers!


3. Adele’s of Hollywood 

Many of us wear a Halloween costume once and then get rid of it, and this can feel like a bit of a waste with how expensive mass-produced costumes are. Adele’s of Hollywood changes that.


There are so many costumes to choose from, and all of them are well made. So well made that they are used in commercials, television shows, and movies—a true Hollywood history! 


Whether you are looking to keep your costume or rent it for Halloween night, Adele’s of Hollywood will have what you’re looking for. 


4. StarMakers Costumes

Like Adele’s of Hollywood, StarMakers Costumes sells and rents costumes. They also have a rich history in the television and movie industries, featuring their products on Netflix and Warner Brothers platforms.


StarMakers Costumes has served the Los Angeles community for more than 30 years, renting out costumes and creating custom orders. Their items are made with great care and high-quality materials so that custom costumes will last much longer than traditional department store costumes.


A bonus of shopping here is that they provide free styling services to ensure you get the costume you want.


One Last Thing

Have fun candy and costume hunting! We hope this Halloween brings you so much spooky joy.
