The L.A. Coroner's office has a great sense of humor, as is evident in its gift shop, Skeletons in the Closet, which sells everything from coffee mugs with body outlines to fridge magnets with foot tags. Playful caution tape and spiderwebs adorn shelves full of novelty items, like a body bag for your suits and a BBQ apron with pockets for “spare ribs” and “spare hands” — great gifts for those with a penchant for the macabre. There's also a sofa made from a coffin on which you can lounge while contemplating the frailty of life. 1104 N. Mission Road, Boyle Heights, 90033. (323) 343-0760, —Jackie Adams
