The first thing you notice about this place is that its housed in an exquisite old hospital building that serves as the administrative offices of the LA County Coroner. It's a small little shop with some really interesting t-shirts and gift items. Apparently, the new...More

If you have a sense of humour, not even a particularly macabre one, you'll delight in this place! It is true that a solemn silence is required as you walk through the lobby, as this is a working coroners office with grieving families in attendance....More

After you've passed through the mourning relatives you can safely liven up. Throughout the gift shop you'll be thinking (Is it even LEGAL to sell THAT???!!). No worries! You can also buy online to escape the prying eyes of your boss and mother-in-law. Or you...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),...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...More

No, the shop is only open Monday - Friday from 8:30-4. They do have a website at the LA Coroner but try to check out the shop - it's really fun!!
