We have a wonderful family of talented creatures serving a variety of needs and entertainment. Take a moment to meet the Parlour Peeps.
Offering a lifetime of experience in the world of antiques, Lauren also dedicates her time time to you in the Parlour through all of the various experiences the shop offers. She is the creator, organizer, and driving force behind all that you see in-Haus and virtually.
In her spare time, she works on various art and craft related projects, ranging from fabric art to fine art illustration and painting. Hiking, playing with her cat Aleister Cain Meowley, and the occasional video game.
It’s her passion to maintain the Parlour as a safe space for alternative culture and more.
Join Rissa, house diviner & herbalist, for tea and empathy over a tea leaf reading at the Parlour. If your tastes are more esoteric, venture into the liminal with her for a capnomancy session, where she interprets the patterns in smoke. Rissa’s specialty is the rare and mysterious, allowing her to notch into the shadows quite well. Her magic is earthy, her passions ground in herbalism; her sun sign is water, her way of seeing the world is always curious, always mystical. When she’s not exploring the shadows of the soul, Rissa is also a magazine editor, professional photographer, and haunted history tour guide.
Consider booking a tea leaf reading, tarot reading, or attending a workshop with Rissa.
Steel your hearts and behold The Dark Parlour’s very own Circus Sweetheart, Krystal Younglove The Indestructible Lady – Reminiscent of classic 10-in-1 circus sideshow, Krystal Younglove brings you a squeamish inducing delight. From bone shattering animal traps, walking on glass, eating fire, invulnerability to the bed of nails, feats of strength, and hammering nails into her head… she has certainly made a career out of all the things your mama told you not to do!
Krystal is the resident Sideshow artist at the Dark Parlour and Entertainment Organizer for Fang Around. If you’re lucky, you might be able to catch her lurking around the shop during the week. She only appears when she wants the humans to see her. Occasionally with a little persuasion and maybe some bribery, she can provide her slightly absurd, sometimes educational 10 cent shop tour.
Stygian is Lancaster, PA’s premier queer DJ spinning goth, industrial and industrial bass, pride, 80s, and house with an emphasis on highlighting lgbtqia+ artists. He’s been a staple DJ at every Fang Around event, playing all the right sounds to keep you moving and having fun.
Josh spent 3 years working alongside Lauren at the Parlour, helping with anything and everything, all while serving up smiles, jokes, and good vibes in the Parlour. He still visits frequently, and remains an integral part of the Parlour experience.
