Alda Baptiste Castaldi, who ran an Ellicott City dress shop bearing her name for decades, died Tuesday of a stroke at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care in Towson. She was 89. In 1968, Ms. Castaldi opened a fabric store called Alda Baptiste on Old Columbia Pike in Ellicott City's historic district. She relocated in 1970 to Main Street, where the business became a specialty dress shop. Ms. Castaldi sold the same kinds of dresses as department stores or larger bridal shops, said her daughter, but the chatty, caring owner offered customers a higher level of service.

Alda Baptiste has altered her last wedding dress and is clearing out the leftover veils and beaded shoes, preparing to close one of the oldest businesses in Ellicott City's historic district. After 32 years selling first fabric, then dresses she designed, then ready-made formal wear, she is retiring from the business that bears her name. The 19th-century mill town - with its nearly biblical fires and floods - hasn't always been the best place to work. Twice, her merchandise was ruined when the Patapsco River rose and engulfed Main Street buildings.
