Miscellaneous Collectibles and Oddities
are a few of the unique, hard-to-find and sometimes just plain odd items
that we have for sale in our shop. Some people have said that
visiting our shop is like going on a short trip around the world.
We are always looking for things one rarely sees anywhere
Among the array of collectibles we carry in our shop are hand-carved Cherokee masks, various handmade knife sheaths with some being beaded and some being decorated with quillwork; hand-carved bone objects from several locations, including by local as well as by Indonesian, African, and Tibetan artists; the occasional bronze casting, such as the actual-sized human skull bronze pictured below; antique trade beads from the fur trade era; and...we... you will just have to check with us to see what our newest unusual items are.
