The Bone Room

A fixture in Berkeley for over 20 years, The Bone Room is closing its retail store but continuing to sell items on line.  We went to sketch during its final days on Solano Avenue.  Selling bones, fossils, insects and other natural history items, the store is more like a little museum.  As their website says, it's "a place to contemplate items that embody the intricacy, beauty and real wonder of nature."

The rough texture of the alligator skull is amazing.

Loved the Davy Crockett hat on the skeleton

All sorts of curiosities at the Bone Room
