Paxton Gate - Monkey Mascots

There's always something to ogle at this unique San Francisco curiosity store. When we asked what is permanent, aside from a few slower-to-sell large items like the unicorn head, we were directed to an overhead shelf, home for a pair of stuffed monkeys wearing paper hats and fastened to a piece of driftwood. This was the first taxidermy piece displayed in the store, and is the only item not for sale.

Taxidermied Mice Scenes

Love this store! So many great taxidermist items, including all the tools you need for your home hobby studio. Great dioramas and odd plants too.

Next door to the pirate shop at 821 Valencia.
