“I opened Paranormal in the summer of 2008 as a way to bring enthusiasts together, from beginner to expert, to share in the journey of exploring the realms of all things paranormal.”
– Kathy Kelly, Owner/Operator of Paranormal

Paranormal Books & Curiosities is a unique experience boutique. We carry the largest selection of paranormal books and gifts you’re ll find in a brick and mortar store. Our books range from local and regional titles, historical guides, ghost hunting primers, parapsychology, science and theory, cryptozoological research, metaphysical subjects such as astral projection, reiki and past life regression, as well as an incredible selection of paranormal fiction featuring ghosts, vampires, zombies, werewolves and more! The current issue of Weird NJ can always be found in our store along with the Weird U.S. series and exclusive collectible magazines.

In addition to books, we also offer a wide variety of paranormal experiences, including book signings, guest filmmakers, ghost hunting classes, seances, paranormal investigations and lectures. Our shop is often host to an exclusive revolving collection of paranormal art exhibits. For the paranormal investigator, we stock the latest in ghost hunting equipment and supplies and our store is staffed by experienced investigators ready to answer your questions.  From haunted yours to ghost hunting classes, PBC is your destination for all things paranormal.

Paranormal Books & Curiosities and The Paranormal Museum are truly unique locations and can make for great event spaces for private parties, events, gatherings, showers and even weddings! Contact us with your ideas or take a look at some of our popular party planning themes.

In the past 7 years, PBC has been fortunate enough to work with some great locations and has been featured on several well known paranormal television shows, in the United States and Canada. Our primary investigations of Restaurant Plan B was the impetus for the television show The Dead Files visiting Asbury park on 3 separate occasions to investigate the location.  Paranormal BC has over 15 site investigations of the Restaurant Plan B location on file.

While PBC travels the world looking for artifacts and ghostly experiences, we also focus on our own state’s paranormal past.  Ghost stories of the Jersey Shore & Ghosts of New Jersey are featured heavily in our book selection and the exhibits of The Paranormal Museum
