  • The place is a museum, where people come to see ‘em, they really are a scream. ….

  • huh? that seems so odd. not that i would ever go tanning, but if i did, i don’t think i would go there to do so. it’s like 2 totally random business ideas thrown together.

  • I’ve always thought this was one of the strangest business partnerships – rare curiosities and sunless tanning.

  • WHOA. I’m generally anti-tanning but this is so totally weird and ridiculous that I am kind of obsessed with it.

    If for some bizarre reason I ever decide I need a spray tan, I’m going here, just for the story value.

  • Trying for an Austin vibe? This seems like something one would find in Austin.

  • Perhaps one points to a piece of furniture (or a stuffed animal on the wall) to indicate the skin tone desired from the tanning process.

  • Awesomely bizarre! Are we sure we’re not being hoodwinked by some performance artist?

  • These bizarre business parternships had something of a cult status in my home town (Edinburgh, Scotland).

    There was a store on Shandwick Place in the West End that sold greetings cards/stationary upstairs and was a hairdressers downstairs.

    The most famous was “Borland’s Darts and Televisions” on Leith Walk. It sold darts/snooker accessories AND TVs, VCRs, cables and such.

    I just googled it and it still exists: http://www.yelp.com/biz_photos/RkxS86ja8U7pUXbvpsO0Ow?select=xIFh463aVGXIEzLgoVqkIg.

  • Looks like a special celebrity episode of “Hoarders: Charles Nelson Reilly”

  • Instead of saying “Why?” I’m all “Why not?!” This is AWESOME!

  • I think I might want almost everything (except those chairs) I can see from that picture. Particularly intrigued with the metal structure that looks to be round on the floor next to the front chair and chandelier. Plus those fans.

  • I happen to love this place! Great spray tan (i looked AMAZING the next day) and customer service. The whole place is super clean and smells amazing. The vintage/antique wares for sale just make the experience more–ecclectic! Highly recommended. Also check out the $25 spray tan special on livingsocial.com.. Can’t beat the price!

  • Great news. I live on U Street but actually traveled out to Arlington just to get this spray tan for special occasions. And anyone who lives in DC knows how much of a pain in the a*s it is to travel over the river. This place is legit. So excited.
