    New Curiosity Shop Raises Eyebrows

    Need a piece of jewelry made out of mouse bones? How about an undertaker's make-up kit from the 1940's? Head on over to "Requiem" a new store in Philly at 9th and South.

    The only thing I am curious about is the shop keepers mind.
    Women are Angels.
    And when someone breaks our wings,
    we simply continue to fly... on a broomstick.

    We're flexible like that.

    lol having grown up going down "south street" MANY times. this type of store there fits right in, it sure doesn't surprise me any. actually i'll have to make note to remember next time i go to visit my kids. they pick me up in philly so i'll have to have them stop off there so i can check it out. yeah, i'm 55 but still like strange things like that. my kids, all in their 30s just shake their heads. then they say and their friends wonder where they get it from? lol
    we need to encourage harder sentencing on those that are harming our children. our children are worth it!!

    stop the circus!! these children as all children deserve to be found and justice brought forth for what has happened to them!!

    athy, sadly I think you'd be disappointed. Once they put a Gap and a McD's on South Street it lost it's uniqueness. To me that is scarrier than the mouse bone necklace, and badhorsie's make up kit.

    Uh-Uh, no you did not. Look at the "wound eraser". FWIW that would freak my brother out big time. He's a mailcarrier and has delivered to Funeral Homes over the years. They get magazines with the tools of the trade in them. Why he'd even look at the cover is beyond me. I guess he had to look when he'd bunch it together and deliver it.

    Man, if we had bank we could franchise. I have bad credit. Anybody?

    Bad credit here too! "We can't go wrong." My dad was a mail carrier (of the rural sort) and had to deliver live chicks, but never, say, fetal pigs in jars of formaldehyde. Takes me back to 11th grade biology, that.

    That entire post just offers up too many great names for our shop.

    "We Can't Go Wrong"

    "Formaldehyde Pigs"

    "Live Chickies"

    Oh I could go on. That postman job seems like a cool gig, don't it? That is until we see our loved ones out in 100 degree heat or blinding snow. Bless your dad.

    You speak Latin so no way am I asking you why you collect skulls, Prima Facie.

    Did you get to Harry's when you were on South Street?

    Maybe you can tell me just what in the h*** that little mummified thing was that looked like a monkey that sat in that window for a bajillion years was.


    BTW, when I was in there not too long ago with my DD who shops there regulary they kept sweeping around me and the store. I later mentioned how clean they must be, and she goes "Oh they wanted you out. Ma, they were sweeping away your bad energy and whoever them spirits are that come with you".
