I’m all for evolution but in the grand scheme of things I would be pretty happy with a more sloth-like pace. It was this reality that I was made to deal with when The Bone Room announced yesterday via Facebook that on June 1, 2016 they will be shuttering the doors of their brick-and-mortar oddity shop on Solano Avenue to focus on their online store, pop-up shops, and special events.

While this isn’t the final swan song for the Bone Room, it does signal the end of an era. I will miss going there and opening drawers of rainbow colored bugs, poking through their shelves, and talking with their strange and knowledgeable staff. I was working myself up into an acute state of agitation when Bone Room employee, Victoria Vice, sat me down and explained “It’s a natural history store, so I guess if you look at it as evolution, it’s not so bad. We’re losing our tail, but like gaining bipedal-ism.” Suddenly things seemed less bleak, and I began to see that perhaps change isn’t so bad… With that, Bone Room, I look forward to seeing your new manifestation and look forward to being further weirded out, but I will sincerely miss your physical location.
