Göta's World, Helsinki

Göta's World has moved.  If you happen to be in Helsinki, you can find them in Tarkk'ampujankatu 4. Göta's World is the only natural history oriented antique shop in Scandinavia. Located in the heart of Helsinki, this odd antique store sells natural history items, curious antique pieces and other oddities. Bestsellers are skulls, ragged taxidermy pieces, medical antique, shells, and bits and pieces of death memorabilia. They buy their items from private collectors, garage sales, and auctions and also do repair work on decrepit and torn taxidermy mounts and broken skeletons. You'll also find various other oddities such as 1800-century rustic houshold items, insect etchings from the end of 1700-century and religious antique pieces.
