Rest in Pieces Oddity Shop

A lot of interesting things to see, from insects to humans. Giraffe head and neck -- neat to see how tall just that portion is up close. They have bones, skins, whole animals, pieces in jars, quills, crystals, so much more I can't remember it all. They still require masks at this time.

Rest in Pieces moved a couple miles over. Great staff and neat sights!

The former Bunnyhop Bicycle Shop, its exterior decorated with charming pastel murals of animals on bikes, is now painted all-black with a cartoon grim reaper rising from a cemetery. The neighbors must be thrilled.
