Woolly Mammoth, the Curiosity Cabinet
Adam admits that he has a thing for taxidermy. And bones. And teeth. He’s even made an animated sculpture where taxidermied mice circle and dance to “Three Blind Mice.” His wife is a jewelry designer who uses found metal pieces to create unique bracelets and rings and somewhere between their two talents lives the Woolly Mammoth Antiques & Oddities.

Georgia O’Keefe-esque cow skulls, a Space Invader video table, wax replicas of inner organs, antique metal denture trays, vintage baby dolls and old medicine bottles all share space with artwork by local artisans in this tiny little shop. Not everything in Woolly Mammoth is a curiosity but if you’re looking for something unusual or you just want something unusual to look at, go visit Adam.
