Not everyone’s fleeing Tampa for St. Pete. Dysfunctional Grace, a dark and lovely little outpost of oddities co-founded by Liz Furlong and Daniel James, is a twisted but artful novelty shop and gallery that opened in the 600 Block area of downtown St. Pete in March 2012. Starting out their biz as a showcase for James’s taxidermy sculptures and peculiar doodads from the past, the couple heaved ho to Ybor spring this year and started out its new tenure on a remarkably better footing: DG sold more in eight days in Ybor than one month in the ’Burg. Perhaps, more night crawlers equals more business for a strange little shop, which trades in creepy medical equipment you might find in a Trent Reznor video or, better yet, a stuffed grizzly bear wearing a fez. 1903 E. Seventh Ave., Ybor City, dysfunctionalgrace.com
