Sick and tired of buying the same type of gifts for your friends? What about a wolverine skull instead of a bouquet of flowers? Or a taxidermy ostrich instead of a teddy bear? “The Learned Lemur is Colorado’s only oddities and unique antique dealer” according to their official Facebook page, and they’re moving into a new location in Denver.
The oddities and antique store that’s on 1947 S Havana St in Aurora is moving into 2220 E Colfax Ave, right off York St. It will be neighboring bars The DNVR Bar, Tacos Tequila Whiskey, as well as restaurants Okinawa Japanese Cuisine, Yahya’s Mediterranean Grill & Pastries and more.
The store has been open since 2015 and operating with a “small team of lifelong collector’s [with a ] knowledge base is second to none,” according to their official website. “We have spent years building relationships around the world to provide you with sustainable, ethically sourced skulls and taxidermy.”
You can find everything in this carefully curated store and we mean everything from a taxidermy giraffe head (lovingly named Jesk), to a collection of crucifixes, to a late 1800s treadle dental drill, to a portrait of Jesus made out of glitter and much much more.
The new location will not only be a larger space but will also include a “Freak Show Venue” which will host markets, “freak shows”, art openings, gallery nights, and more. Conspiracy Theory Tattoo will also be moving into the space. So get ready to get inked, buy some taxidermy and check out a show all in one space.
Follow them on Instagram for store spotlights. We can’t wait!
