Great place to shop for antiques, modern art pieces and small local items. Friday nights are often open gallery nights with food trucks, music and a chance to meet local artists.

Obscura is a good name. Full of strange and interesting art. Far from the typical art galleries, it is worth a visit to widen your horizons!

Eclectic mix of art and collectables! Stopped in to check the place out and found tons of cool stuff from original artwork, handmade jewelry, tshirts, antique toys and collectables! I will continue to be a customer, you should stop by and check the place out!

This place wasn't what I expected, being smaller than anticipated & more a showcase for local & emerging artists than a gallery or "art shop" in the usual sense. Not a place for high-end art, certainly, but I love that they give locals a place...More

So many interesting things/art to explore packed into a small place. Some of the best stuff is upstairs, "hidden" away in a tiny room. Take your time with this one, folks.
