Box of Skin
This old mall in Golden Valley, MN is one of my favorite structures in the world. Old sixties style shopping center. I am amazed they havnt torn it down as they already built a huge unwrap and slap together "modern mall" across the road. Also Minneapolis and the surrounding areas loooooove to tear buildings down in the name of progress but mostly the destruction of history ad culture.
Way back when there was this store called Down n the Valley. It was mainly a record store but also sold head shop faire and "curiosities". Someone told me when I was about 8 that they had boxes of human skin for sale. Down in the Valley is still around and I never hear its name with out thinking of boxes of skin
