Ye Old Curiosity shop is full of curiosities, indeed. This is the place to visit if you want a really special souvenir or gift from Seattle.

There are nice and 'normal' staff like Russian folk art items or Native American things. Other parts of the merchandise are more bizarre, you can find things like dried and shrunken human heads or even mummies.

The place definitely is worth a visit even if you don't want to buy anything.

1001 Alaskan Way, Seattle, WA 98104, USA

Average prices, only the bizarre things are more expensive.
