Curio Obscura

Crap Mariner linked to a post by Miss Pandora Wrigglesworth, proprietress of Curio Obscura, designating today (Saturday, the 28th, as I have no idea at the moment when this will post) and the next four days as "Curio Obscura Appreciation Day."
Miss W. writes:
By the power invested in me as Pandora Wrigglesworth, I declare today Curio Obscura Appreciation Day, also known as Pandora Needs A Little Help Making Rent Day.
On this day, we pay our respects to Pandora Wrigglesworth by traveling to Curio Obscura where we purchase Curio Obscura products for ourselves and our loved ones. Of course, some of our loved ones cannot be with us on this most special of days and so they do their shopping at Curio Obscura on Second Life Marketplace which is also the easier method for purchasing gifts for said loved ones. And the wonderful thing about Curio Obscura Appreciation Day is that it is celebrated for five joyous days, starting now.
No, seriously, I need a little help this month. If there’s something you were thinking about buying but didn’t get around to, now would be a really helpful time to make that purchase.
I had been meaning to look at the store's new location, so what better time than to do so, I thought.

The new spot seems substantially bigger than its predecessor on Rendervisions Isle:

The house, which appears to have flattened an earlier structure on the site, still displays Miss Wrigglesworth's offbeat sense of humor:

Inside, the gears make the magic happen:

Well, the gears and the boiler:

The shop is home to the ubiquitous "Anywhere Door" as well as a variety of amusements, including automaton avatars, teleportation arrows, and unusual propulsion devices. Fun stuff.
