You want weird and unusual? You’ve come to the right place.
Hail, Dark Aesthetics is located in East Nashville in the shops on Porter Rd. I can almost guarantee you have never been in a shop like this. As co-owner J.D. puts it, “We’ve got the lockdown on weird.” From taxidermy to vintage dental equipment to a vintage Teddy Ruxpin, you will find it at Hail. Owners J.D. and Nina are true blue and can help you find just about anything you are looking for. Want a muskrat skull? Easy. Looking for some human teeth? They’ve got it. Searching out vintage Mason treasures? Boom! It’s right here.
It is basically impossible to see everything in the store in one visit. There are so many different items and things you have probably never seen, at least not close up. (Pig fetus anyone?) Hail is really a museum of sorts that you don’t pay admission to enter. Bring your kids to see taxidermy animals that they would never get close to in the wild. There are dinosaur skeletons, bat skeletons, and more that they are sure to be fascinated by as well. Have a doctor or dentist friend? Don’t stress when it comes around to their birthday this year because you can find vintage dental and medical equipment at Hail that is sure to be something they will love to own.
Don’t take my word for it though. Check out the video tour below!
