So many interesting things, from Taxidermy to funky shaped candles to skeletal remains! I could look around here all day! The shop owner seemed very friendly and was very knowledgeable when other customers questioned her about various items on sale.

I got a skull candle which made a great window piece for Halloween. I'd really like to build a little collection of antique medical devices and I know where to find them!!

Gorgeous little shop filled with so many amazing and quirky things! We got a boxed butterfly which is beautiful! The back room is transforming into a little piece of history and it is well worth the visit!

Accidentally found this little gem. Packed with odd and fascinating items including taxidermy and old medical paraphernalia. Anyone with a Fortean or Steampunk type leaning should visit.
