Darwin and Wallace, a shop hidden within a high-end antique store, caters to oddity collectors and lovers of the natural world.

Visitors to the shop will find several amazing specimens for sale, from dinosaur teeth to cultural and tribal items. There is also a huge array of mounted butterflies and other insects for guests to marvel at.

The name of the shop pays homage to two of the greatest naturalists and explorers of their day, Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace. Both men made a name for themselves for their discoveries and the amazing specimens they brought back from their voyages.

The owner of the shop’s life-long obsession with nature began when he was a young boy. Whether you’re a serious collector or just want to take a gander at the amazing collection, Darwin and Wallace leaves everyone that visits in awe.
