Paxton Gate reviews
Highly recommended visiting, went with my daughter( not a teen) we both really enjoyed it. Lots of cool and interesting things to look at more »
I’ve always enjoyed going to Paxton Gate in Portland and San Fransico for fun, gift and books so I thought that if I was going to take a taxidermy class Where else would I go? My husband is an artist.... more »
Lots of character! Sells taxidermy, plants, crystals and more. I can imagine the horns they have would be good for cosplay. They also have a cute bookshelf with books on mushrooms, insects, and design stuffs. Definitely worth checking out if you're in the neighborhood
SO unique! This landscape/taxidermy store has a little bit of everything. Perfectly set in the Mission district of San Francisco it's hard not to take a trip inside while walking Valencia street. The insect selection is beautiful and even though I'm not big on bugs you have to pick them up. Trust me, you'll feel like a child again exploring and learning about these little fascinating... things. I don't know how I feel about the skeletons of mice being dressed up in fanciful human clothing but that is something you don't see everything and for that Paxton has now grabbed your attention. You can find all of your horticulture needs within the back of the store although it could take you an hour easily to make your back there to head outside and see the store in it's entirety. Truly a fun experience for all ages.
