Time Out says

This East Village staple, which hawks antiques, rare taxidermy and freaky novelties, has moved down the block into a 450-square-foot space that was once a funeral home. The spot has the same dark and twisted feel as the previous location, with creaking wooden floors, old-school hanging globe lights, and enough strange and unusual artifacts to earn owners Mike Zohn and Evan Michelson a show on the Discovery Channel, aptly called Oddities. You’ll find jarred piranhas ($25) and trays of preserved butterflies and beetles ($250–$350). A large oak case from the turn of the 20th century houses one-of-a-kind costumes, such as a hooded black robe embroidered with a skull and crossbones ($150). Adorn yourself in macabre accessories, including brass skull rings ($60) from Renfield Novelty, Zohn and Michelson’s new jewelry line.
