About

Dark Element

This all started at an extremely young age. One of my first and documented memories at the age of around three or four is of watching the light of a flickering jack o lantern in a dark kitchen on Halloween night. The memory is burned in my brain and I suppose started me on this love of all things dark.

It always felt normal to me, very comforting. I gained a strong love of horror movies and monsters as I became a bit older. I was always plagued by nightmares. I started realizing history and looking at how things were made. I was sort of disgusted at how everything modern was made of cheap plastic and never lasted.

I started collecting everything old, and then started collecting only strange and macabre items very death oriented. I have been buying, selling and collecting scarce and dark items for a very long time. Eventually I met my beautiful sweet Amy and now we are both enjoying the fascination together. I have always wanted to live in my own museum and that is exactly what we have done together.

I live in an old Jail built in 1813 in Salem MA. My backyard is the old graveyard where Giles Corey was pressed to death with stones. Giant crows fly around and stand on the tombstones all day, they caw and perch on the top turrets of the jail. You can catch us on the TV show Oddities now and then talking about our collection. We are both originally from NY. If interested in Bone specimens please contact me.

    I have been collecting and selling strange, scarce and unusual items all of my life. Ever since I was a small boy I have had a fascination and intense draw to dark things. I live in an old jail in Salem MA with my sweet other half Amy.

Greetings, please feel free to explore. Unique and Unusual items come and go quite frequently, thank you kindly for stopping by. I am always open to offers on certain items, do not be shy. IF INSURANCE IS DESIRED PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE PURCHASE.

Recently Etsy deemed my unique items such as 200 year old Human Bones as unfit or against their policy. Please contact me for private sales of these unique items. This has had a drastic effect on my business and overall look of my shop.

Thank you
