The curiosities shop and tattoo studio is moving to a new location.

Dreadful Things is moving to a brand new spot at 4001 Dyer, (corner of Dyer and Monroe) in northeast El Paso. Owner and tattoo artist, Francella Salgado, has been in business for 9 years, operating as Dreadful Things for the last 6. Francella describes herself and her business this way:

... a curiosity shop with a huge love of the old sideshow circus. I have a small museum of sorts with some obscure items including human skeleton, skulls and bones, taxidermy and wet specimens, vintage and antique items and things of that nature. I also carry other items in my retail area like art, crystals and herbs/apothecary, home decor, t-shirts, jewelry, and more. In addition to all of that, I am also an artist and an award-winning tattoo artist with over 11 years of experience. Awards include 3 best of shows at conventions all over the US.

Check out some of Francellas' work below and, if you stop by, be sure and compliment her on her dreads!!  As always, SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESSES.
