 Our Story

Owner Josh Balz has always had an affinity for collecting “weird stuff.” Often spending much of his free time shopping around at local estate sales, flea markets, and antique stores all over the world, he began expanding his personal collection to excess. This led to the idea of opening an oddities parlor and he’s never looked back. Josh is a hardcore animal lover who strives to provide ethically-sourced and cruelty-free taxidermy, skulls, and bugs to his shoppers, most of which are priced affordably. The Strange and Unusual offers a sprawling selection of collectible items, gifts, furniture, and apparel at locations in Kingston and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
