Tucked in the Allentown neighborhood 5 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh sits the most uniquely curious shop. The Weeping Glass opened in 2017 and features ephemera, hand-crafted items, and artwork. Stop in and be amazed.

Kelly Macabre Noir and Aaron Doctor, also known as Dr. Morose, created the annual traveling sideshow Morose and Macabre’s Atrocity Exhibition featuring a “cavalcade of the beautiful and grotesque, brought to life by a cabaret of bizarre entertainers, artists, and artisans.” It is only fitting that they opened a shop to house these creations. Various altars are situated throughout the compact store. Private collectors display taxidermied animals in small vignettes.

Once a month the store hosts “Midnight Death Parlor,” a performance whereby a tragedy is told by candlelight. This month added a séance to its schedule. Located at 817 E. Warrington Avenue, the store is open Wednesday-Friday, 1-8 PM; Saturday, 12-8 PM; and Sunday 12-6 PM.
