    The baby fetus skeletons are real. Go upstairs and contemplate.

    Shopping isn’t all about clothes. I love stores that carry unique, bizarre items. With cool rocks and creepy taxidermy, it’s one of the most interesting shops in Soho. -Nina Garcia, Fashion Director

    Fetus skeletons are $895, but you and a friend can make one at home for free.

    if one of these creepy human skeletons has caught your eye, be aware: you can only buy one with an up-to-date medical license.

    For the extreme scientists and fans of eccentric collectibles. This is like going to a museum where you're allowed, and encouraged, to take the display items home with you.

    Upstairs you can choose from a selection of mounted insects and they will frame them for you. They also have a few unmounted specimens for those brave enough to try it (it's really fun)!

    You can buy astronaut food, stuffed birds and human skulls, but if you don´t need this sort of stuff, you can also acquire insects, shells, or minerals, which are much more common. =P Read more
