On display will be 45 artisans, creators, and purveyors of the strange and unusual crafting’s, baubles, trinkets, ornaments, novelties, knickknacks, ephemera, elegant jewelry, clothing, accessories, medical and scientific specimens, antiques, photography, home decor, taxidermy, works of fine art, and other collectible curiosities created from components, parts, pieces, bugs, bones, items and elements hand-made, foraged and found. The Menagerie Oddities Market™ draws a merry band of nomadic and dedicated, awesomely awe-inspiring, anomalously aberrant, distinctively divergent as well as idiosyncratic and individualistic misfit artists from near and as far away as New York, South Carolina, Portland, and Los Angeles who regularly participate in the now, nearly 40, annual fantastical themed Oddities Shows, Peculiar Pop-Ups, and Festival events.
