Atlas Obscura is, as its header says, a travel and altas to the world’s curiousities, which is exactly the type of tour guide I have been looking for all these years. They just posted on Boing Boing asking for submissions of “Purveyors of Curiosities” and I thought that perhaps some of our readers could help them out (and maybe one of our writers, Miss Nixon).
From Boing Boing :
Whenever I travel, I always seek these sorts of shops out, but they can be awfully hard to find (there’s no page in the phone book for “odd stores”). If we could put together a good list of the world’s “purveyors of curiosities,” I think it would go a long way to making the Atlas Obscura into a really useful resource for curious travelers. So, please tell us: what are the most “wondrous, curious, and esoteric” stores in the world? (And if you have a few minutes to spare, would you consider writing up a brief description and adding them to the Atlas?)
