  • I cannot say enough positive things about this shoppe and it's owner! I will start with IT IS NOT A MUSEUM ! Wonderful, unique pieces inside that are one of a kind and wouldn't fair well with careless...  read more »
  • Ummm where has this place been all my life?! Traveling up from Baltimore got some great prints, keys and a embalming poison glass bottle. This pace has stuff for the whole price range so I am kinda co...  read more »
  • A small, one room store with a couple hundred oddities. A lot of it tends to run towards memento mori, or medical, although it runs the gamut. Not my taste, but a lot of people will really enjoy this. 
  • Favorite store in Salem. If you're into weird, dark and kinda steam punk stuff, this is the place to go.
  • Very cool if you're into morbid-ish stuff! Pretty sure they don't let anyone under 18 in (or at least they shouldn't since there are a few pictures with pornography on them) but I didn't have my ID checked so I'm not sure. There are a lot of really unique items in here, and if I wasn't near broke I'd definitely buy stuff from here. Lots of cool skeletons / bones, older medical materials, etc. everything is for sale, but don't touch things! Once I have a more secure amount of money I'm going back here to make some purchases. The workers / owner were very friendly. We didn't ask anything other than how he obtained a lot of the items (which I would definitely be interested in hearing more about but didn't want to be a bother), but I got the impression that he was fairly knowledgeable about the history of what was in the shop. Make sure to give yourself enough time for this place! You may not be able to go in right away since there's a limited number of people that can go in at a time.
  • Some really unique finds, however it is NEVER open... it's a total crap-shoot when and if they'll be least put a schedule in the store front. Went there on a Saturday around noon and not open
