Woolly Mammoth Antiques and Oddities is a small store located on a busy street in Chicago, Illinois, and if you are not careful you could walk right by this store and not realize what you are missing. It has been open for trading since 2010 and is run by a couple with a love of all things old, weird, and slightly on the creepy side. They were inspired to turn this love into a business while on their honeymoon, following the trail of Vlad the Impaler. The store has gained popularity year on year and has a great reputation as a must-visit spot in Chicago.

There are few places where you can find a stuffed badger and a giant Millennium Falcon on the same shelf, but this perfectly describes Woolly Mammoth Antiques and Oddities. You may also be lucky enough to see original E.T. and He-Man toys alongside the likes of pickled pig fetuses, alligator lamps, Atari 2600 games, and an anchor pulled from Lake Michigan shipwreck. Other kinds of treasures found here include taxidermy, anatomy items, medical equipment, books, bones, charts, maps, tools, industrial salvage, and quite a bit more!

As might be expected, it is often the stories behinds the kinds of antiques stocked by Woolly Mammoth Antiques and Oddities that are the most fascinating. Luckily, the owners of the store are well versed in the histories behind specific items and all things supernatural and on the creepy side! Therefore, even though the store is not that large, it is easy to lose a lot of time here. Each item within is equally fascinating. Not every item would be welcomed in many homes of course, but this makes a visit to the store even more necessary. Where else are you going to be able to look at, touch, and find out about unique antiques like these?

"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."
