A Month of Spookdays: The Peculiarium

The Peculiarium
Yesterday, I discovered the existence of The Peculiarium. Naturally, I had to get there as quickly as possible. The door says “Est 1972”, but who really knows. What I do know is it’s a delightful little shop. There you can get a hot dog and some ice cream, as well as big foot candy and all sorts of other oddities.

There are horror scenes set throughout the store–devil babies in cribs and the ashy remains of a spontaneous combustion victim, to name a few. I should have taken pictures of some of those.

Instead, I couldn’t resist snapping a pic of bigfoot. The place is also filled with Halloween masks, and tons of offbeat art. It was Gesine Kratzner’s blog (she also has an Etsy shop!) that led me there. I was also taken with pieces by Dusty Genard.

Ultimately, I ended up taking home two things I can’t show you just yet. One is a birthday gift for a friend who reads this blog, and the other is a bottle of Bat Sweat, which will go with another project. I loved this little shop, and plan on dragging unsuspecting friends there. Or even suspecting friends.
