The Mini Cooper tricked out to look like a hearse parked outside is a harbinger of what’s inside: the stuff of Wednesday Addams’s dreams. You could lose an afternoon browsing Lawyer Douglas and Tyler Zottarelle’s sprawling, meticulously documented collection of specimens, oddities, and curios. Think of it as an obscure museum where all the exhibits are for sale: rhinoceros beetles encased in glass ($265.95), a yellow-bellied water snake preserved in a giant mason jar ($145), and a gigantic African bull elephant skull dating back a century, yours for $10,000 and the promise not to cross state lines.
