Clearly a labor of love, OBSCURA ANTIQUES & ODDITIES feels more like the attic discovered upon the death of an old scientist who lived in a spooky house on a hill. The items catching your attention depend on your particular phobia or fetish. An animal lover can take home her very own sloth, stuffed for posterity and posing on a tree segment, for $750. Conversely, a germophobe can confront his fears with a wax anatomical model of a face infected with lupus, rabies, or other diseases (prices vary). They also carry antique clothes, Freemasonry paraphernalia, and decorative items made of human hair. The vintage Mr. Potato Head game feels out of place, or maybe not—it's an anatomical model, too!
