Collectors Shop ‘Elseworlds Emporium’ Opens in Federal Hill

| November 10, 2020 | 0 Comments

Collectors shop Elseworlds Emporium opened at 921 S. Charles St. in Federal Hill. The first-floor retail space was previously an automobile tag and title business.

Elseworlds Emporium is a new business from Jason Petrini, who lives in the area and is a veteran of the United States Army. It specializes in a “wide range of product lines which cater to collectors, table-top/RPG gamers, hobbyists, pop-culture aficionados, and geek-chique enthusiasts.”

Elseworlds Emporium is a buy/sell/trade shop with new and used product lines such as Transformers, Gundam, Robotech/Macross, Voltron, G.I. Joe, Masters of the Universe, Mythic Legions, Mighty Morphing Power Rangers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Marvel Legends, Star Wars, Dungeons and Dragons, Warhammer 40K, Age of Sigmar, and more. It also has a limited selection of books, comic books, graphic novels, art prints, posters, statues, movie props, memorabilia, and “occasional” antiques and vintage items.

Customers can make an appointment to visit the shop Fridays from 6pm to 9pm, Saturdays from 12pm to 5pm and 6pm to 9pm, and Sundays from 12pm to 5pm. Customers can also shop Elseworlds on eBay.

Elseworlds Emporium offers a 5 percent discount to law enforcement, military, veterans, and emergency response personnel.

Petrini said minimal renovation was needed to set up the shop and that he chose Federal Hill because it “seemed like a safe, affordable neighborhood with zero similar offerings.”
