Shopper’s Diary: Paxton Gate

February 4, 2008

San Francisco garden/curiosity store Paxton Gate specialized in slightly macabre wares before the whole skull/death motif went mainstream. It’s the go-to place for mounted butterflies, moths, tarantulas; taxidermy jackaloupe and mice; sea urchins and starfish. They also carry gardening tools and odds and ends such as bell jars, journals, jewelery. Well worth a visit if you are in SF; otherwise go to paxtongate.com.
