Woolly Mammoth Antiques & Oddities

By on February 11, 2012

Woolly Mammoth antiques and oddities store in Chicago, ILI finally had the chance to stop in at the Woolly Mammoth Antiques & Oddities shop in Chicago, which turned out to be a very unique and interesting excursion.

There are not too many places where you can find a stuffed badger and a giant Millenium Falcon on the same shelf, or original E.T. and He-Man toys alongside the likes of pickled pig fetuses, alligator lamps, Atari 2600 games, an anchor pulled from an unknown shipwreck in Lake Michigan near Door County, WI and Clancy the Dancing Squirrel.

The only thing more fascinating than the vintage taxidermy, skulls, teeth, creepy medical devices and other items are the bizarre stories that come with them and the people who find them.

Had I not been broke going in, I definitely would have come out with more creatures than the car could handle. Clancy would have had to ride home on the roof.

Woolly Mammoth Antiques & Oddities is located at 1513 W. Foster Ave., Chicago, IL 60640

You can also find them online here: Website | Facebook | Etsy Shop

One day Clancy…you will be mine!
