Oddities shop Rest In Pieces has been intriguing us with their ram skulls, bone jewelry, taxidermy, and other eerie preserved specimens since they launched their online business in 2014.
Since 2015, owners Justine Torone and Alaina Gearhart have operated out of a shop on South Stafford Street selling all sorts of spooky and funky artifacts for the avid collector. Now, the shop has outgrown the space and this weekend, it will move to a bigger location in Oregon Hill at 349 S. Laurel St.
Painted in all black with the exception of a giant white grim reaper mural courtesy of Sure Hand Signs, looming across the space, the new shop will be up and running this weekend.
Rest in Pieces is throwing a Grand Re-Opening party, this Saturday from 6 to 10 pm to showcase some new inventory and for people to check out the new digs.
According to their Facebook, they’ve been hoarding some pretty cool items for the new shop so go check them out this weekend.
And read up a little more on their backstory in an interview RVA Mag did with the business in the fall of 2015 here.
