An Eye for Exotics
When I enter the doors of Paxton Gate, I always feel as though I’m in a natural history museum, where shopping becomes discovery. Where else can you find carnivorous plants, roaring lion heads and finger chopping beetles?
Described by a friend of mine a Hermes for witches and wizard, the store definitely holds you spellbound. On this last visit, I was transfixed by an adorably macabre taxidermist mouse, dressed as Napoleon.
I always have a great time in this shop – see for yourself.
I just love this White Silkie Chicken!!!
This Santa Claus would make a perfect gift for someone on your Christmas list.
