Cabinet of Curiosities and Otherwise Needful Things

Welcome to the Cabinet of Curiosities and Otherwise Needful Things! Trading in Antiques, Curiosities and Oddities – From the Rare to the Absurd! We are Canada’s most unique Retail Gallery and Prop Rental service. Special collections include a menagerie of exotic Victorian taxidermy, medical anatomical studies, apothecary, tribal artifacts, natural history, world treasures, prehistoric fossils, eclectic Victorian décor and so much more.

We have been described as a museum; journalists refer to us as “Home Sense through the Eyes of Stephen King”; to the film and television industry including Umbrella Academy, American Gods, Hand Maid’s Tale, Reign and others, we have become the source for the macabre and unusual.

We are so much more than a retail shop, we are an escape from the mundane, we are a fluid and evolving gallery, but most importantly… we are different… we are an experience!
