What kind of vendors will I see?

Our vendors have items such as: Taxidermy, preserved specimens, odd antiques, original art, horror/halloween items, crafted oddities, curiosities and all around strange and bizarre items. We make sure to have a little something weird for everyone! We require our vendors to source their specimens through sustainable and legal routes. Everyone has a different opinion on what "ethical" is, but we do our best to ensure all items you see at our shows come from sustainable sources and no animals were harmed for the sake of art. 

We love animals and would rather memorialize them through preservation than have them thrown in the trash. All items you see at our shows are legal to own.
