Memento Mori Oddities Shop

A genuine Little Shop of Horrors. 

Sorry, Memento Mori Oddities Shop is permanently closed.

Opened in 2013 by photographer Mattaeus Ball and model Starla James, The Memento Mori store presents a vast collection of odd antiques, macabre artifacts and modern artworks, as well as a large array of flea market treasures that the artist used to provide through his Etsy store. 

Pay a visit and you’ll be struck by the melancholic beauty of Lizzie – the Victorian skeleton and mascot of the shop who lies in a glass coffin like a morbid version of Snow White, a bouquet of dead flowers in her hand. Unique in the area, Memento Mori is a mandatory stop if you are in the Bournemouth area for a treasure hunt revolving around old and antique things, specialising in the macabre.
