Bazaar – Shop of Oddities Baltimore, Maryland

Shop of Oddities in Baltimore, MD

Our 36 hours in Baltimore, Maryland to visit our son Brett – had me looking for thing to do that were different. After a visit to the Baltimore Inner Harbor Tourist Building I saw a brochure with a reference to the Bazaar shop of Oddities, sounded like the perfect stop for us – something different.

It is different alright, a small shop about a 12minute drive from inner harbor Baltimore – where you park your car on a side street in backward according to the posting – and well every other car was parked that way so easy to figure out. We never did solve if there was a parking fee, and we did not pay any and did not get a ticket either. We walked over the neon lime building and walked inside to a full house of people – jammed into this little showroom of – well weirdo stuff that is fascinating to look at.

Albino Doe, with Mad Red devil eyes, and the elusive jackolope. The store offers taxidermy classes as well.
Cowhide shrunken heads
Reasonably priced plastic surrounded small animals, reptiles and bugs.
Small animals and fish in formaldehyde. Thought these were cool, but hard to explain on a carry on luggage ride home.

My favorite item was a Radium poster, David liked the box filled with speculums. The weirdest thing was a human like torso suit made of pig intestine found on a farm – weirdo people are out there and while I did not need proof, this was proof. The web site for the store is:

So check it out your self, they ship everything.

Were a Metro Detroit, Michigan, couple – second marriages for both of us – and we dream of retiring early to Travel the World. Follow us while we try and figure out to raise our kids, and save to retire. David is a Robot Programmer, Laura is a Medical Physicist. We put our kids before ourselves for years, saved and ate at home and now after years of all this sacrifice and raising our kids - we are closing in on empty nesting, and we realized we have the opportunity to retire earlier than most and follow our dreams to travel the world. How are we going to do this? Well we have a lot of ideas, but lets see how it works out. Our original retirement date was January 1, 2021. We are reviewing the option of working another 3 years but prefer to keep the 2021 date, either way we will be retired by 55 years old - still trying to figure out how, but working toward our goal everyday, while enjoying each other and our blended family. Follow us to see what happens. All images on this blog are copyright (c)
