Obscura Antiques and Oddities now open on Avenue A

RyanAvenueA passes along word that, as of yesterday, Obscura Antiques and Oddities is now open at 207 Avenue A. The reality TV favorites moved out of their East 10th Street store at the end of January ... arriving here at the onetime Sparacio & DeMarco Funeral Home, which closed in 1995.

When we stopped by, the place was full... nice to see a lively storefront along an otherwise quiet retail block.... and funny how lively it is considering they sell so many dead things. Or something.

During the Christmas holidays I was out of town. The weather was cold and miserable and I turned on the tv and behold a Marathon of their shows. It was great.

It is great to see a retail business open on Avenue A as opposed to a bar. I hope they do well here and draw in other retail stores along upper Avenue A and the side streets.

I am very happy Obscura is there! Welcome, neighbors.

By the way, does anyone know if Obscura buys items from individuals, and how that might work? I have three oddities in my apartment I was thinking of unloading.
