Elsewhere goes by many names, including "living museum" and "thinking playground." However, it's easier to grasp what the erstwhile thrift store is all about via a video tour. The space brims with artistically curated clutter—from animal knicknacks to a floor-to-ceiling, cyclone-shaped statue made of dolls. Members receive special discounts on tickets and other surprises at Elsewhere's 6th Annual Fundraising Extravaganza, The Last Great Winter, on Saturday, October 11, 2014.

  • Mission: To creatively repurpose objects from the past through storytelling, visual art, and other disciplines. The curators host an array of resident artists who help them do just that.

  • Size: In stories? Three. In objects? Innumerable. The building's contents were amassed by the thrift store's original owner, Sylvia Gray, who shopped at Salvation Army and Goodwill twice a day.

  • Eye Catcher: Before you even get inside, you'll probably notice the three rope-and-wood swings hanging from the eaves.

  • Permanent Fixture: The fabric workshop. It's stocked with bolts of fabric in myriad colors and patterns, just like the inside of any quality rainbow.

  • Don't Miss: The resident artists share a huge dinner with the public at 7 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday. Let them know you're coming 24 hours in advance, pitch in $5-$10, and they'll save you a seat.
