Brilliant independent shop with all sorts of world curio from shrunken heads to old creepy toys and taxidermy. The owner is a really cool guy who told us all about his ‘collecting’ trips to the likes of romania and all the macabre sights he has...More

This place is qurikey, weird and wonderful. I love the odd range of super cool stuff. If you want something odd come here. Where else can you find a jar of teeth? The owners and staff are so super nice.

This is, by far, one of the most unusual stores that I have ever been in. Filled with one of a kind items! This is in Andersonville, north of Chicago. The business card says antiques and oddities- worth the visit if you want to take...More

If you enjoy the unusual, you will LOVE Woolly Mammoth, located in the Andersonville Neighborhood of Chicago, IL. After the Chicago fire of 1871, wooden homes were outlawed and Swedish immigrants who could not afford brick or stone homes began to move outside the city's...More
