Mummified Mermaid, Oddities

Lots of very cool antiques. It really takes you back to see all this stuff from my youth. Nice fellow runs the place. You are welcome to browse. The mermaid is creepy.

Six-foot Mummified Mermaid

North Idaho Trading Company is a quirky little antique shop with a life-size mummified mermaid. They've also got a full-body articulated skeleton, a 100-year-old jail cell, a whale penis, a mummified fairy, and hundreds of pieces of taxidermy including a giraffe, hippo, full-body lion, bison, and many other odd/interesting pieces.
