Oddities...

Has anyone been watching the show Oddities on the Discovery Channel? If you like the weird and wonderful, you must tune in!

The show centers around the wonderful shop, Obscura Antiques & Oddities in New York City's East Village. I was fortunate enough to visit there a couple of years ago and was amazed at the layers of unusual and curious items they had to offer. I even found a couple of treasures for myself.

On the show Mike & Ryan, the proprietors of Obscura, visit shops, auctions, antique shows and estate sales to seek out one-of-a-kind pieces. Everything from bizarre medical instruments and taxidermy, to Victorian hair jewelry and shrunken heads!

What a fun show to watch! I just want to jump through the screen and shop with them. The second season just started yesterday, but the Discovery Channel reruns many of the episodes. Tune in and let me know what you think!

And, if you don't get the show on your TV, be sure and visit their website here and you can watch clips of it online!

Wishing you a great week ahead!
