Looking For The Perfect Gift? Here's Where You Can Find A Jeweled Victorian Gas Mask.

A Brooklyn flea market specializes in truly weird oddities.

A Brooklyn, New York, flea market will offer some bugged-out items for sale this weekend ― like a spider web ring.

The First Annual Oddities Flea Market will be held March 12 at the Brooklyn Bazaar, giving lovers of the weird a chance to buy some truly bizarre items in all price ranges, according to organizer Ryan Matthew Cohn, best known for his appearances on the Science Channel series, “Oddities.”

Cohn's co-star, Mike Zohn, of New York City’s Obscura Antiques & Oddities, said it's a perfect place to shop for any kind of holiday. "You could get a taxidermic rabbit," he told HuffPost. "That's a good Easter gift for Grandma. But there is also one vendor who specializes in prosthetic eyeballs."
