Dark Delicacies has been an independant all-horror books and gift shop in Los Angeles since 1994. Owned and operated by husband and wife Del and Sue Howison, the one-of-a-kind store needs your help, as Guillermo del Toro just drew our attention to.

I love Burbank. I edited CRONOS, BLADE II, MIMIC etc, there. I love Magnolia blvd I love its stores (many pieces in Bleak House come from there) and I love, love, love DARK DELICACIES. I vow to help it move successfully. You can help too… https://t.co/SnvsDkoVfd or visit & shop pic.twitter.com/e2ukd2Okyv

The shop needs to move locations due to the skyrocketing rent in their Burbank neighborhood, and a pretty perfect option presented itself in a possible new location.
More than just a bookshop, the location has played host to numerous in-store events (like autographis, fan-gatherings and more) over the years, and they’re not ready to call it quits with their brick-and-mortar just shy of their 25th anniversary.
