Paxton Gate

Posted by

Paxton Gate is a San Francisco based store described as Treasures and Oddities inspired by the garden and the natural sciences.  They are known for their mix of neo-Victorian delights, eclectic animal and plant ephemera, taxidermy, bones and skulls, framed and mounted insects, jewelery, affordable art fossils and minerals, and more.  They also cater to younger folks at Curiosities for Kids  which is a nostalgic assortment of toys and games inspired by the Natural World and the Pre-digital era. I had a great time in this shop--see for yourself.
