There is a place I know of, where you can time travel.
Located in a lovely suburb of Los Angeles, in a little portion of a beautiful, old house is The Curio Emporium.
Purveyors of curiosities, antiques, oddities, steampunk accessories, taxidermy and militaria, the Curio Emporium is small, but thoughtfully and lovingly curated by it's proprietors, Jenna Macabre and David Constantine. The couple run the shop themselves and contribute to the overall atmosphere by dressing in various period costumes and could not be kinder hosts.
I went to the store expecting not to be able to afford much of anything however, I found the prices so reasonable I was able to bring home a number of bones, photos and a new Jar Pal - a darling little mouse.
The Emporium has branched out and is rapidly becoming a community fixture by hosting a variety of events including picnics, a hearse car show, steampunk themed days and this coming weekend, a special Christmas event featuring a puppet show, vintage clothing as well as booths with other artisans.
