The name “Needful Things” is inspired by the famous 1991 novel of the same name written by the master of horror, Stephen King. The story was about an antique shop that contained an item for anyone who walked in the door. Items that the patrons could not live without.
All of the items found in our little shop of horrors have been pulled from the cracks, crannies, and dark corners of not just Tulsa, but the entire world. Although we do cater to many local artists, the items we provide are not limited and can best be described as occult, bizarre, strange and even unusual. No matter who walks in our door, we can guarantee there is at least one item that will hold your fascination. Even if you choose to leave without it, that one item will haunt your thoughts until you come back again.
Our store is ever changing and always fun. Full of curiosities for all ages. Some of the items we have include, but are not limited to insect candies, gag jokes, books on the occult, wet specimens, taxidermy and osteology, entomology, vintage medical supplies, religious relics, ouija boards, craft materials for all paths, tarot cards and readings, magic, curio posters, and much more! If we do not have what you are looking for, we can sure try to conjure it up!
Don’t forget to say hello to our lovely staff!

We offer several classes on “The Art of Craft”, Candle Magik, Mojo Boxes, and Tarot. These classes are taught by local professionals who can teach you the secrets of their trade. For more information on the content of the classes, click here. Be sure to keep an eye on our calendar for class schedules and other events.
If you have some “odd” items or antiques you believe we would be interested in, please do not hesitate to bring it in! We love getting to see and discuss some of the fascinating things people have stored away. You can also email us (needfulthingsTulsa@gmail.com) some photos and a description of the item if it is too big to easily haul into our store. We are always willing to work with you if the item you have is something that would be a good “fit” for our shop.
All sales are final. We do not accept returns. However, depending on the item and the situation, we may provide and exchange.
