Evan Michelson from "Oddities" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series.

An inveterate collector and museum aficionado, Evan Michelson is co-owner of Obscura Antiques & Oddities now, but in the 80s, she was a rocker ... with a twist.

As far as business goes, Evan attends markets and auctions weekly, earning her nicknames that include "Morticia Addams" and the "Death Lady." She is also an ethical vegetarian, a Victorian hairwork collector, an aesthete, and scholar-in-residence at the Morbid Anatomy Library, where she delivers regular lectures.
