There is no odder little store for housewares and accessories than Obscura. Run by Mike Zohn and Evan Michelson and nestled on the side of 10th Street, it is a treasure trove of obscure, slightly nefarious antiques and collectibles -- and every now and then there is a gem of a find tucked away inside...

Obscura caught our attention for its unique collection of old school desk lamps that we wanted to use by a client's bedside. They also sell mounted deer heads, old photographs, laboratory glassware, clocks and animal teeth.

Our favorites were a shell casing lamp we saw once in the window and the funky diner clocks -- things we've always wanted, but have yet to buy.

Trigger Magazine says: "The perfect antithesis of the Sex and the City plague that threatens to gentrify the East Village."
