Overview
More
We have always considered ourselves an old fashioned part of roadside America. Trundle Manor is currently the headquarters of the Secret Society of Odd Acquisition and is curated by the eccentric Mr Arm and Velda Von Minx. Built in 1910, Trundle Manor has become a place where a culmination of years of insane collecting and creating has found its niche. Want to be a little creeped out? Need something different to bring your chick to? Like horror movies and want to see the beginnings of a serial killer's obsession? Well, come on down and experience all of this and more. If you are Steampunk, Goth, rockabilly or just a little weird you will love Trundle Manor and want to come back often. Come and see our vast array of jarred animals, antique taxidermy, things for which to murder with, old world charm, sadistic medical devices, coffins and coffin like items, Steampunk influenced creations, cryptozoology, and any other thing your twisted mind will want to look at. Nothing in the Manor is rubber, latex, or fake, (except Uncle Trundle)! We pride ourselves on not filling our shelves with cheesy, fake memorabilia.

We were amazed at the variety of things on display, some of them way more bizarre than I can imagine thinking up on my own. :p Velda was so friendly and shared stories about their collection. Although they don't charge a set fee, we did...More

The collection at Trundle Manor is amazing, but what really makes it a "must see" are the owners, curators, and makers of much of the collection, Mr. ARM and Velda. They are personable, intelligent, dress the part, and are amazingly imaginative and skilled. The quality...More

First of all, their website doesn't really say what this is, but it sounded interesting. We made reservations for Thursday night and drove to the house. When we pulled up by the curb, we all looked at each other and wondered aloud if our friends...More
