The Dark Parlour is a unique experience of shopping, culture, history, and more. A Haus of Obscurities, we offer antiques that focus on dark and strange things; pieces of history that explore the human condition. We have five rooms of retail space exploring a wide variety of antiques and collectibles, such as unique ephemera, victorian funerary practices, religious iconography pieces, old medical things, everyday antiques, occult studies/practices, and pop culture.
Additionally, The Dark Parlour curates exhibits and showcases in the Gallery, located on the 2nd floor, which rounds out the Haus with six rooms to experience. This versatile space also lends itself to workshops, lectures, paint nights, and so much more. We post our events here, and on Facebook, Eventbrite, and York365, should you ever wonder what we might have to offer for your weekend entertainment.
This isn’t your typical antique or vintage co-op. We pride ourselves on being a premier destination spot where you can not only shop for, but also learn about the darker things in this world. The Dark Parlour is a one stop experience to fill your senses with dark aesthetics, learn something new, see some art, and purchase something for your curio shelves. Built in 1900, the row home was transformed to reflect a darkly romantic Victorian aesthetic. Rooms are divided into themes, like the Seance Parlour, where you’ll find witchy wares.
We are located south-centrally in York, Pennsylvania near the major routes of I83, PA Turnpike 76 and Rte 30. We are 30 minutes from Harrisburg, 25 minutes from Lancaster, 45 minutes from Gettysburg and 60 minutes from Baltimore!
