The Gothic Rose.

If you’re looking to visit a cross between a haunted house and a macabre antique store, you’ve gotta check out the Gothic Rose. Located in Placerville, Ca., this little shop o’ horrors is just what every goth witch called for.

Proprietress Crystal used to have a Gothic Rose boutique in Petaluma, but two years ago consolidated to tourist friendly Main Street in gold country’s Placerville. Around Halloween the store takes on an even greater ghostly air.

The Gothic Rose is filled with cemetery chic, black on black, vintage medical and mortuary supplies, dark romantic Victorian keepsakes, memento mori, funereal antiques and other wicked wares. Crystal’s collection puts the tacky “Halloween Warehouse” type temporary holiday stores to shame.

For a haunting good time with a twist of terror, check out the Gothic Rose Antiques & Curiosities.
