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

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.
