New Yorkers are so lucky. They have in their City unparalleled shopping opportunitites, one of which is the ‘Evolution Store’. Provided you have family members who appreciate gifts that are rare, unique, way out, super interesting and knock out beautiful you can solve all your gift buying dilemmas forever in just this one store. And if you yourself like acquiring the strange and exotic then it’s heaven on a stick.
Located at 120 Spring St. SoHo in Lower Manhattan it sells everthing from science and natural history collectibles all the way up to home furnishings. You’ll have your pick of skeletons of every creature on earth, taxidermy specimens, rocks from outer space from big to small, jewelry created from butterfly wings, art from foreign indigenous cultures and clever anatomical puzzles for children, think elephants and humans.
Crowded as it is with such delicious things to buy, their expert staff guide bewildered customers through the maze of fabulous artifacts, spiders, animals and skulls to whatever it is that appeals to you. See the video and you will get the idea. Only one of the biggest cities in the world is big enough to support a shop devoted exclusively to things liked by the more curious, adventurous and discerning customers around and, in the case of some of the really big things on sale here, with a sufficient number of those seriously rich enough to buy them.
There isn’t anywhere else in New York or probably the world where you can buy a ‘Lovers from hereafter’ poster of 2 skeletons kissing or a humungously horrible large spider embedded safely in resin.
