Central Florida is known for its diverse themed entertainment empires, tourist attractions and basketball team. What many not know, lurking on North Orange Blossom Trail in Orlando, Florida, is an obscure oddity shop known to locals as Carmine Oddities & Antiques Boutique.
Carefully curated for the mature collector, this quaint shop harbors a host of hauntingly beautiful, unique items that are both fiendishly fun and utterly unnerving at the same time. Whether for a Halloween party or conversation piece, Carmine’s is the perfect place for obtaining that one of kind item to complete your collection of creepy curios.
From antique cameras, machinery to obscure older medical tools; pickled punks in specimen jars, skulls (animal and human), rare posters and prints and so much more mysterious merchandise mingle among the shelves, tables, and walls of this magical shop.
In addition to a bizarre bazaar of freaky frivolities, Carmine’s also offers outstanding coffees from Coffee Shop of Horrors, scented soy candles and locally crafted jewelry.
Not only does Carmine Oddities & Antiques Boutique manage a magnificent and sometimes macabre collection of fiendish fun for sale, the small red brick building is a venue for various events like movie nights, classes, cabaret shows and sketch kvlts.
