Sweetie and I absolutely love Pandora Wriggleworth's Curio Obscura shop. It's full of clever gadgets, priced reasonable, and the shop itself is a hoot.
Most people never realized it, but the old shop was a giant mechanical insect-like creature. Well, spider-like, as it had at least eight legs.
Visitors could drive it from a cleverly disguised control room.
When Sweetie and I visited last week, we discovered a new and larger, but still mobile stucture.
Like its predecessor, it has legs. These are fancier-- they're shod.
The head is a magnificent blend of ship's prow and Crap Mariner's head.
Inside, clanking and hissing steampunk machinery is everywhere.
I'll write about some of Pandora's great products in my next post.
