The Evolution Store

The Evolution Store is the naturalists’ dream, whether interests lie in high quality, museum-standard collectible pieces or in more simple replica pieces to decorate the home

Tucked in a corner of the Bohemian capital of Greenwich Village, The Evolution Store is probably one of New York City’s most interesting shopping spots. Stepping into this store is an experience between looking around the props room on a movie set and spending time in a natural history museum or in a huge Wunderkammer.

The Evolution Store is the naturalists’ dream, whether interests lie in high quality, museum-standard collectible pieces or in more simple replicas to decorate the home. There are preserved and mounted animals of various species, skeletons, skulls, pieces of art, fossils and minerals to name but a few of the items. The Evolution Store sources its goods from highly skilled paleontologists, anthropologists and other professionals, who also supply items to museums.

For quirky gift ideas or souvenirs, The Evolution Store can offer amazing items for under $5, like porcupine quills, shells and crickets. The mounted animals are the most expensive items in the store – up to $4995 for their beautiful white peacock. But there is such a huge range of things to be found in The Evolution Store, anyone with an interest in the natural world will walk around this store like a kid in a candy shop.

The staff at The Evolution Store are exceptionally knowledgeable and always happy to engage with customers about specific items, or natural history in general! This store can get extremely busy, especially on weekends. Therefore, be prepared to spend some time to really make the most of this unique, museum-like, cultural experience that is so much more intriguing than any normal shop!

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
