Carnivorous plants, pinned butterflies, stuffed squirrels—you’ll need a sense of the macabre to enjoy this store’s treasures and curiosities. For those who have one, there’s lots to discover: fossils and minerals, orchids, succulents and cacti, books and jewelry (including a silver ring that looks like it’s been made from four tiny bones). It’s a world of its own—somewhere between a cabinet of curiosities and a natural history museum.
