Looking For The Perfect Gift? Here’s Where You Can Find A Jeweled Victorian Gas Mask.

A Brooklyn, New York, flea market will offer some bugged-out items for sale this weekend like a spider web ring.

The First Annual Oddities Flea Market will be held March 12 at the Brooklyn Bazaar, giving lovers of the weird a chance to buy some truly bizarre items in all price ranges, according to organizer Ryan Matthew Cohn, best known for his appearances on the Science Channel series, Oddities.

    “For $5, you could get a vintage postcard,” Cohn told HuffPost. “For a lot more, you could get a taxidermic cat.”

    Cohn’s co-star, Mike Zohn, of New York City’s Obscura Antiques & Oddities, said it’s a perfect place to shop for any kind of holiday. “You could get a taxidermic rabbit,” he told HuffPost. “That’s a good Easter gift for Grandma. But there is also one vendor who specializes in prosthetic eyeballs.”

    The flea market replaces one that was held a few times a year at the Morbid Anatomy Museum, a death-centric museum in Brooklyn that closed its doors in December.

    “Their flea market was one of the most popular events they had,” Cohn said. “My wife and I thought, ‘How can we save it?’ None of the vendors had any place to go.”

  • Victorian Hair Art

  • Sword Tarot Earrings
    Bloodmik Jewelry

    Zohn hoped the flea market is successful enough that they can hold them every few months.

    “We’re carrying on the tradition of showing things not seen by the average public,” Zohn said. “People are flying in for this.”
