The Curiosity Shop

Posted on 20 July 2010

Hey, are you looking for a full size skeleton as the pièce de résistance for that empty corner in your living room?

. Or maybe you've been searching for something smaller... like a skeleton of Siamese twins to display in your son's playroom? "No,"  you say - not into old bones? Then how about a little taxidermic duckling to greet guests in the entry hall? Or a full size stuffed peacock to hold court in Dad's study? Not to worry. You can find these plus a plethora of other curiosities at the Evolution Store on Spring Street in SoHo just like we did last week. We made not one, not two, but THREE visits to the store... and yes, Sammy now has an Xenosmilus hodsonae (sabercat) skull replica for his nightstand.     ..


The full-sized, genuine "doorman" dangling at the store's entrance is guaranteed to mysteriously suck both men and boys into the shop's portal.  Once inside they will ogle for hours at the strange, weird, but beautiful curiosities. .
