There were a few fascinating things I enjoyed looking at here, but nothing I would ever want to buy. Nice place to visit and take a break from the sunlight, but the hallways are pretty tiny and there are fragile things, so don't take children...More

Nothing makes you feel less welcome than being called out in front of a large crowd for having a small backpack purse. I WANT to give this store a high rating just because of all of the interesting things inside, but one of the employees...More

Cool oddities shop on S Congress but very over priced. We walked around a minute they wouldn't budge on any of the prices on there skull collections. I don't see how they stay open as no one was buying anything. Cool for a walk through.
