I had heard about this place some years ago, and finally got around to visiting in June of this year. Some of the gifts in there are really unusual - towels with body outlines on them, crime scene tape, body bags, down to the usual assortment of t.shirts, pens, fridge magnets etc. I spent a fortune in here !! One... More

You can also buy online to escape the prying eyes of your boss and mother-in-law. Or you can wrap their offices in yellow Crime Scene tape, place fake blood spatter at random... More

Okay, it's not your typical gift shop - Skeletons in the Closet is the gift shop in the L.A. County Coroner's office. It's a great source of one-of-a-kind gifts - T-shirts, Hoodies and jackets emblazoned with "CORONER", body bags, beach towels (with a chalk-outline body), toe tags, caps and even a christmas ornament. Truly unique gifts. It's worth a visit... More

Who would have thought the coroner's office would have a gift shop?! If your taste runs to the darker side then this is the shop for you... coroner logo mugs, shirts, "body bag" garment bags, hats, and the delightful chefs apron with pockets for "spare hands" and "spare ribs." Granted, the store is small and the selection is rather limited,... More
