Photo Hunters: Fake



Currier's Market in Glover, Vermont is full of "fake" animals. They were once real but they all visited the taxidermist.



If you like, you can view all 32 images from this store in the Currier's Market set on Flickr.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you all are having a good summer!

  2. I have several of these guys here in my house, I don't know I didn't post them. I am enjoying the slides.

    Great take on the theme.
    Oh, I am also bookmarking your other page, I always need ideas for different foods and I will not do my best to not break the internet. ;)

    Have a good weekend.

  3. How awful, I hate stuffed real animals, I have to think that they had been killed. But a nice interpretation of the word !

  4. Well that certainly is a bit different, the nearest we have got to that is a fake cockrel in the local supermarket,crowing about the eggs.

  8. This is in a store?

    I don't think I'd have the stomach to shop there.

    but, thanks for that!

  11. Great choice/choices for the theme. Even though they are dead they still look very much alive.

  12. I have some stuffed animals too. But mine are pink and yellow and green and they do not look quite as realistic. (Mine are toys).

  14. Very interesting place to have a bunch of dead animals hangin' around! It's pretty cool in a weird kind of way.

  16. Kind of freak out by fake creatures especially the ones the used to be real - still don't get what appeal of taxidermy

    ReplyDelete
  17. They certainly look alive. It must be a little creepy walking around those stuffed animals. Great choice for the theme.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Better these are preserved with their natural looks than just seeing them in photos. Good choices!

    Btw, how was the aftermath of your 4th of July celebration?

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  19. It's just sad what they've become. Anyway, that's a good interpretation of the theme. :)

  20. i am kind of scared with stuffed animals... and i feel so sorry for them too.

    nevertheless, great photos for this week.

    thanks for dropping by and have a great weekend. :D

  21. Great take on the theme!! These are all in one store? Love the feminine hygiene products behind the wolf... heh heh heh...

  22. I have to say I much prefer the real ones over the "fake." There is a grocery store in the teeny town of Quemado, New Mexico that is full of elk heads. Creepy!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I hate it when a perfectly good animal decides to visit the taxidermist, it nevers ends well for the animal.

    I love the slideshow, I must play with that feature on Photobucket.

  25. Wow, can't imagine something like that in our supermarkets, love the slide show view as well

    ReplyDelete
  26. That's one freaky supermarket. Does it scare all the kids or do they love it?

    ReplyDelete
  27. That's pretty neat!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wow that's quite a collection! Great picks for The Hunt this week. Thanks for stopping by and hope your weekend is wonderful.

  30. that is certainly the most unique grocery store I've ever seen. Almost worth a trip to see it.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Well, they aren't really fake, though. They are still a real carcass, right? ;-) FAKE Photo Hunt

    ReplyDelete
  32. one of a kind store in the world i think :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Unique store ... I haven't seen anything quite like this one. I'm sure that it could be frighting for some children.

    Have a great weekend!

  35. Wow, didn't know that you can have fake animals in a grocery store -- well I guess it is better than the real ones roaming the store *grin*. Great pictures for this week's hunt theme.
