As the name would suggest, this Humboldt Park gift shop of sorts stocks a range of curiosities to "shock, amuse and read." There are plenty of books and zines to keep you busy—occult, yoga, sci-fi, art and fantasy. You'll also find local art, taxidermy, locally made jewelry, vintage housewares, statues, tarot decks and old-school toys. Space Oddities also hosts monthly classes and meetups, such as figure drawing, Anne Rice reading circles, esoteric workshops and occasional music shows.
