If you have an interest in the dark and macabre, then Necromance is the store for you. With two storefronts located just doors from each other on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, Necromance is a home to everything dark, spooky and dead. The first store is mainly dedicated to taxidermy, with tons of animal skulls, deer heads, jars of bones, test tubes with bugs and much more. The second store is more like a mini-museum, except that you can actually purchase all the curiosities you see on display here.
A tour through Necromance is a must for anyone that enjoys these types of collectibles. If you have an oddity fascination or a curio cabinet dedicated to interesting objects, then be sure to bring your wallet, because you won’t be going home empty handed. You’ll find antique medical supplies and funeral jewelry, holographic artwork and occult jewelry. There are a lot of photos and pieces of art to check out as well, the type you may find in a haunted house or a funeral home. You can purchase x-rays of animal and human skeletons, books on surgery techniques, and postcards with truly dark imagery. The interesting thing here, is that nothing is overly morbid or grotesque. Everything is displayed with more of a museum feel, bringing more “curious” to mind than “morbid.” And if you like skulls, then you are in for a treat. There are a lot of skulls. You’ll find resin skull recreations, bronze skulls, skull paintings, skulls on shot glasses, skulls on dinner plates, skull napkin rings, skull salt and pepper shakers, skull candle holders and so much more.
Enjoy your trip to the dark side and set out to visit Necromance in your 2013 SLK350 Roadster from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. You’ll love arriving at the curious store in style, enjoying all the elegance and glamour of the Mercedes-Benz. However, after your trip through this fascinating and haunting destination, you’ll be glad to put the top down and cruise down the highway in total comfort, enjoying the beauty of your stunning Roadster.
