UPDATE: OUR CAMPAIGN WAS SUCCESSFUL AND WORK IS UNDERWAY!
We have started a Kickstarter Campaign to take the permanent collection and make it into a small museum for the public. This project needs backing from people who believe there is enough mundane and not enough curiously weird and amazing stuff to see. We have many more things than are currently on show, and can't wait to share them all.
We will soon have pages up about the museum as it gets closer to completion and eventual opening. Some of the displays will take some time so we likely will do a soft opening and then open properly in the autumn.
After over a decade of selling our unusual curated finds and scientific preparations in our own shops, gallery and museum spaces as well as through several online and local markets in the United States, we opened our current eclectic curiosity shop in York City Centre. We pride ourselves on our oddities, unusual antiques, vintage treasures, in house created skulls, taxidermy and biological specimens and giving our shoppers a museum like experience. We specialise in diaphonisation, customized skull and skeleton mounts and personalized processing and preparations. Everything in our store is carefully curated and brought to our customers with a passion for the stories behind the objects. We host classes and lectures and related events and rent out our skills, inventory and our space.
We are York's One Stop Weird Shop.
An old fashioned curiosity shop, with an eye towards sharing antique and modern fascinations with the greater community in every way possible, like a Victorian cabinet of curiosities.
