The shop has also made the finals of the BBC Home & Antiques Best Antiques Shop in the UK!That's not a bad recommendation to have. « less

As I explained I was sorry we were closed, this was down to other commitments as I was away filming a TV show, but as I told you we always advise people to call before travelling a great distance to visit as the nature of very small independent antiques shops is I can't be everywhere at once. But please feel... More

A tightly fitted shop but only because there is so many amazing antiques crammed into every nook and cranny. The effect is like being thrown into some sort of machine covering every angle of culture and society from the last 50 years. So many highlights but my top one is a miniature version (about 8 inches across) of a newspaper... More

I absolutely love this little boutique and museum of the macabre. I haven't visited anywhere else like it in the world and it's definitely worth a look! Current items include, a bog's head, indian shrunken heads, old surgical equipment, taxidermy creatures, mummified rats and victorian mourning jewellery including an old preserved heart and a necklace made out of hair. Everything... More

A great quirky little shop with a wide variety of vintage and antiques. The whole family would love it and will keep you entertained for a while looking at all the curiosities. It is small but packed full of interesting things and you can tell it has been built with love for the items on sale. Good value prices and... More

What a wee gem this place is! I was quickly visiting Callander and just had to pop in to see what this place is all about. It is filled floor to ceiling with some wonderfully weird things, my favourite was without a doubt half a squirrel, 'squirrels bum' taxidermy. I also liked that I was left to browse in peace,...

I just visited this gem of a shop on Saturday & was blown away. I have visited antique shops & centres all over the country but didn't expect to find a shop that rivals any big city in a rural Scottish town. This shop might not be as big as the nearby antique centre but it offers a more specialised... More
