About Us
Come take a stroll through our website shop for macabre old statuary, menacing ironwork & haunting mortuary decor. Light your way through the darkness of a forsaken Victorian era parlor with bewitching chandeliers, candelabras, votive stands & antique sconces. Revamp your sinful boudoir with nocturnal period clothing; phantom opera cloaks, grotesque Estate jewelry, vintage masks, wicked old hat pins & fascinating mourning collectibles. To complete your visit, browse for old medical curiosities, anatomy charts, disturbing old undertaker/surgical tools, embalming fluid jars, bones, apothecary bottles & strange old books.

A touch of Transylvania to be found here!
