Hey everyone!

After almost 2 years of supplying oddities to the masses, we figured it was time for a site re-vamp!  We hope you like it, and welcome all comments & suggestions for new things you'd like to see in the future!

Thanks again for 2 years of amazingness, and remember.... Stay ODD!!  :)

Thanks Francis!!

As a sneak peek, check out some killer pics here:


Thanks all - more to come SOON!!!!

Many thanks for an ODDsome first few months!

We wanted to take a quick second and post about what an amazing first few months this has been at ODDmonton!!  It's been an incredible trip - one that we can't wait to keep going!!  Every day brings new & awesome pieces to us, and it's exciting trying to find that once-in-a-lifetime keepsake.

But a close second in all of this collecting craziness is the people.  The people who we've met, either by being customers, supporters, suppliers, or just similar-minded freaks... these are the people who have made ODDmonton the fun and exciting place it is today, and will be tomorrow!!

As a very quick thank-you, we wanted to mention a few key people that have been an influence & great help to ODDmonton - thank you so much for your help & support!!


In the mood for some mind-blowing art?  Pat Byers has been creating it for years & years.  In recent times he has moved from mainly focusing on digitally-enhanced dark photography to more traditional brush & canvas - a change of medium, with no change in pedigree.  We're proud to say we own several pieces, and can't wait to pick up more... a hell of an artist, and a hell of a guy.


Head on over to Dedmonton.com to check out all the latest & greatest horror-related awesomeness the city of Edmonton (and surrounding area) has to offer.  A great site for the horror-minded, done with a light-hearted twist... cause really - aren't we all just in it for the fun?  Be sure and tell Pumpkin'Ed that Barry sent ya... he might be orange, but inside - he's just as squishy as the rest of us.....  :)


Necrophiliac Joe's Cabinet of Curiosities.  Doesn't that title just make you wanna check the link, and dance a jig while you peruse his blog of amazing?  He wins the award for Best Title for a Blog, and also Best Use of a Usually Silly Font.  All kidding aside, Matt's a killer dude - keep an eye on his blog for his new additions (which we hope he'll add to his photo album here too!), and the stories behind them...

Thanks again to all of the above mentioned, and of course to everyone else who has either patronized, supported, mentioned, blogged about, or just stumbled upon the site.  And don't forget to upload your pictures!!!  :D

New pictures, new stock, new community!!!!

As some of you may have noticed, some of our members have been kind enough to share shots of their personal collections in the Photo Gallery!  If you haven't seem them yet, you should click the link above and check them out... some amazing pieces in there!


We'd like to invite all of our members to do the same, and if you've purchased anything from here, maybe toss a pic of that up in the Feedback album, along with a word or two about your experience!


Also - a few new pieces have arrived, including an actual, used Viet Cong amputation kit, complete with torture tools (including a thumbscrew, tourniquet, mouth gag, and MUCH more!!!)  Check back soon for the new listings.


Lastly, we'd like to ask all of our current members to please try to spread the word about the site... it's not only for customers - everyone is invited to post pics and comments about their collection!  Maybe in the future we'll be able to set up a formal trade table area!


And anyone who is just stumbling on the site, and looking to find some crazy, weird, or strange items & people, take a minute and sign up for the site!  We look forward to hearing from you!

Outside? Very balmy. I'd go so far as to say EMBALMING even.

We now have in stock 2 (yeah that's right TWO!!) embalming machines!!

Check out the eBay auction fpr one of them here:




Or, if you're looking for something a little more budget-friendly, check out our new selection of weird.  Lots of new stuff recently added, and coming soon - like tomorrow soon.  Skull caps from Burma.  Embalming syringes.  Dental tack guns.  (Google that crap if you've never heard of it.  Or just ask us to explain.  These things are CRAZY.)


And if you're still in the mood for an embalming machine, let us know - the second one is not so rare, so it's cheaper.  :)

Hey everyone!!  We're super excited to announce that we now have a full 19th century skeleton, IN STOCK!!  We're just waiting on the stand to arrive before taking some pics and listing it.  This skeleton is incredible - features all original hardware, and actual cartilage on the sternum!

Also be sure and check out all the crazy new stuff that has been added recently, including some new Odd Fellows items, and incredibly rare antique medical charts!

New stuff!! And.... don't forget to ASK!!

Some delicious new pieces just added to the store!!  Check out the incredible new Double Headed Calf, shrunken heads, and crows!!

Also - if there's a piece that you dig, but aren't so into the price, LET US KNOW!!  We're here to have fun, and haggling is part of the fun!!  Message, email, Facebook us, whatever - just let us know what you like, and what you're looking to pay!!

Lastly, there are lots of items marked as 'COMING SOON' - this doesn't necessarily mean it's out of stock... it may mean that it's out for rent, or just being held because we don't want to sell it right away.  We like this stuf as much as you guys!!  So again, JUST ASK!  :)

Don't see it? Just ask!!

There are LOTS of things available to us, that we may just not have in stock, or maybe there's something that's just so weird that we don't think it'll sell.  Either way, if there's something you'd like to get, or something you think we should have, just let us know... chances are, we can get it pretty fast!!
