What if the object of your curiosity in that creepy, old antique store comes with its own haunted past? A victorian oil lamp? Letters from a haunted asylum? A shelf that mysteriously crashes? Meet Christian Marcus whose collection of quirky curios can be found at his shop Diehl Marcus & Co. or on the walls and halls of some of Los Angele's hippest bars and nightclubs.
Christian Marcus has worked in the field of interior and set design for over 25 years, in theater, film, theme park, and commercial design. He co owns Diehl Marcus and Co. with his wife Erika. Part shop, part event space, this antique specialty shop was created by the couple in the Edwardian style. The building dates back to 1924 and has been variously a photo studio, silent film producers office, and tailoring shop. Several guests have remarked on sensing the presence of a young woman in the back section. Christian, who hails from Salem, MA has had several odd experiences while working at the shop, from swinging chandeliers, to bells that ring of their own accord. A seance held in the space resulted in items crashing off a shelf.
