Bookstore, curiosity shop, and gallery space

We are an odd duck of a store located in Humboldt Park, Chicago. We are equal parts bookstore, curiosity shop, and gallery hosting work by local artists and local artisans. We host a carefully curated selection of paintings, framed drawings, art prints, along with pottery, sculpture, handmade jewelry, taxidermy, altar candles by Chicago-based artists. Our new and used books span a broad variety of subjects, paying special mind to dystopian and otherworldly literature, poetry, art books, comics, esoteric tomes, mythology, philosophy, pulp sci-fi, and speculative non-fiction, as well as general fiction. We also stock a variety of Tarot cards and incense. After hours, we have a semi-frequent tendency to host tea parties, merry unbirthdays, palmistry workshops, poetry readings, and other events from dancers, poets, performance artists, Tarot readers, palm readers, taxidermy teachers, and the like!
