Interesting recent discovery! About 25 or so years ago (around 1995 I think) a woman came into the music store I was running at the time, situated in central Auckland’s cool and buzzing Karangahape Road. She had heard through word of mouth by mutual friends or musical acquaintances, that I was interested in the paranormal… Continue reading A doll with a message
I get given items often these days. Maybe a little too often. Items that have been either gifted, inherited from a deceased family member, or purchased from an antique store, weekend junk market or garage sale. The owners are always certain that the item is haunted or has some sort of attachment. Soon after receiving… Continue reading Recent ”Adoption” – Feb 2021
In my collection hang three tatty looking marionettes. Two that were gifted to me about 10 years ago. Two Kathputlis; Indian made puppets given to me by a work acquaintance who said they were no longer welcome in their home due to ‘‘their constant fighting” which was starting to frighten the family. According to them,… Continue reading Haunted Marionettes
It’s odd sometimes how life goes, and the things that come your way. For me it’s haunted and creepy possessed things. People give me me items that scare the heebies out of them, to the point they don’t want them in their home. While I do like the concept of possessed dolls and have watched… Continue reading Two new ”haunted” additions
As with most of the items in my decades long collection, I do tend to approach certain items with a somewhat sceptical, even cynical stance sometimes. When the stories seem too good be true and I’m left with so many unanswered questions I have to wonder if there’s either a lot of good liars and… Continue reading Mother in the Mirror
This piece in my collection, came to me around 1993. Back then I was running a small music store in K’Rd, importing alternative and obscure music from around the globe. Because of its eclectic location, we would often get an eclectic mix of people coming in. Some to buy, some to browse and some just… Continue reading Little box of bones n crystals
This is one of the more intriguing of the allegedly haunted objects passed on to me through the years. It’s a small plastic DSI electronic organ keyboard, given to me around 2007 via a work acquaintence that knew I had an interest in this kind of thing and thought I’d like it. Unfortunately I couldn’t… Continue reading The Toy Keyboard under the floor
A couple of recent additions to the haunted item research room (or the Hoarding / junk room, as the wife calls it!) Went around to collect these two mischievous girls, due to their inability to behave themselves, causing much grief and unease in this suburban One Tree Hill household. The story goes that the two… Continue reading Two recent ”Haunted” additions
A new addition to the ”haunted” family arrived today; this one travelling up by courier from Christchurch. Not too much of a back story on this one, really. Apparently the now deceased Mother used to talk to this little girl often when no one was around. During visits the family would hear their mother chatting… Continue reading New chatty haunted family member arrived!
I’m bringing a new family member back with me. I found her in a small charity store in a little town called Edwinstowe, a little village in Nottinghamshire. She was locked in a glass cabinet, at floor level, almost completely hidden behind random old junk, due to staff not liking it. Something about this doll… Continue reading New Haunted family member from the UK!
Hi all, looking for some help with information on this one. This week I received a framed picture. It belongs to someone, who’s grandmother no longer wants the picture in her home and believes it to be haunted and gotten rid of. It was going to be dumped, but I said I’d take it. She… Continue reading The Blond Haired Boy
Thought I’d introduce you to a few from my ‘haunted’ family of toys that I’ve been collecting through the years. The porcelain doll (her name is Maryanne), was given to me about 10 or so years ago. She was from a deceased estate auction amongst a truck load of other items. The new owners wanted… Continue reading Haunted Toys
