Folks that watch the show know you have a pretty impressive collection of medical curiosities. Compared to others, I really do not have a large collection, but I am most pleased with and hold much value in the special items I do own.
Brooklyn Bazaar also has a plethora of amazing offerings.
Our event will feature two floors of vendors, two ATMs on site, The Brooklyn Star restaurant, and two bars with specialty drinks!
Feast your eyes (and your wallets) on natural history objects, medical history ephemera, anatomical curiosities, osteological specimen, taxidermy, jewelry, one of a kind art, flair, and more!
