Best Taxidermy You Can Wear San Francisco 2011 - Loved to Death
When you notice the chandelier made of human bones in the window, you'll know you've found Loved to Death. Inside the store is an impressive and Goth-inspired array of skulls, teeth, feathers, and miscellaneous body parts of any bird, insect, or four-legged creature you can imagine. Recent arrivals included an albino raccoon ($525) and a squirrel riding a hare, rodeo-style, which at $650 is a steal. Rotating upstairs art exhibits include a random blue velvet casket and a warning sign: "Please don't touch the art or you will lose a finger." Then there's our favorite part: the dead-animal accessories and jewelry. Are you coveting an elk tooth or bat wing necklace? How about a brown recluse spider glow ring ($95) or black fox-hair earrings ($70)? If there's a dead animal you want to wear, chances are that Loved to Death co-owner Audra can meet your creepy request.
