Haunted Antiques

Victorian 1890s antique coffin with ghost! As soon as I brought this beauty home, things started flying off the shelves! And then when I brought it to The Old Barn Antiques Mall it wasn't there for more than a few nights, when the overhead light in my booth not only fell to the ground for no good reason, but it landed several feet away from where you would think it would land - upside down without breaking the lights! We were all kind of amazed by the whole thing and now there's talk at the Barn of not only their resident ghost, Esmeralda, but now the ghost of the haunted coffin!

Just like that new show, Haunted Collector where John Zaffis goes around investigating hauntings to see if they are caused by a possessed possession!
I have always been drawn to items with that certain "vibe" to them, so I wouldn't be surprised if there were more ghosts to be found amongst the things I have for sale! Especially lovely old things like this hair wreath and funeral photos.

I have some great items in now for your cabinet of curiosities - a movie prop mummified head, great mad scientist bottles, antique syringes and vintage embalming bottles.

"Gaff" shrunken heads under glass, an albino squirrel and a cat skull used in New Orleans voodoo ceremonies!

An albino muskrat, a very strange old wax doll and an antique coffin catalogue.

Wax death max from New Orleans, creepy old ventriloquist dolls - a "Quiet Please" sign from a funeral home.

A plethora of dolls to give you nightmares ...

Antique ouija boards, death masks and a scary movie prop head.

Victorian undertaker's cooling table with items in bins for my crafy clients. Old bones, rusty things, beads and buttons.

Potion bottles, funeral urns and a nicely framed piranha.

A very large framed certificate for a course in dissection and a lovely antique wax orange blossom bridal headpiece.

My jewelry cases are full of wonderfully strange thing to wear!

Stop by and meet the ghost!

That ventriloquists doll in your "plethora of dolls" pic is giving me the evil eye for sure. There's somebody at work I'd like to use that on!
