It you watch the Discovery Channel, then you should know the TV show I speak of. For the rest of you, it is a show about a little shop in New York City that buys and sells odd nick- nacks. Alot of the things brought into or found in the store do tend to be a little creepy, but many of them I find just plain neat. I wish there were more stres like that around.
I don’t have a problem with large corporations, but I practically live to stumble upon strange and unique stores to browse in. I love discovering places to add to my “collection” of interesting things not many people have. Perhaps this is also why I love going to festivals. I go to as many in my area as possible. Not only do you find “oddities” at the booths, but you also get to observe the unique styles of tons of people surrounding you and participate in activities you don’t have a chance to in your everyday lives. Maybe it’s because I seek places like this that I love meandering around downtown-like places. It’s like a mini adventure!
I don’t know about you, but seeking out “oddities” is a worthwhile adventure. Where do you find yours?
