Merch from the privy

In 2015, we bought a magic theater from a pedophile, a short walk from the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia. A year later during construction, we discovered treasure buried in 250-year-old human poop under the building, and began our ongoing journey into amateur archaeology. Since then, we've filled our home with artifacts including ceramics, glass, metal, ordnance, and animal bones, all dating from the 18th century. We've also dug deep into the history of our building and area, culminating in our podcast, the Boghouse (available everywhere you download podcasts). Now we're selling merchandise as well as some of our collection of thousands of artifacts to help fund our theater/museum dreams.
