Someone I met told me about this bizarre jewelry shop he went to once in NYC 15 years ago and I want to know what shop it was and if it still exists.

He told me about it after I asked him about his interesting silver skull bracelet. Here are all the facts that he gave me:
-The shop consisted of mostly (if not all) silver pieces. Lots of things with skulls and even some finger claw type things.
-It was somewhere in the Village.
-It was very small, narrow and dimly lit.
-There were upside down crucifixes hanging from the ceiling.
-Glass cases of jewelry lined the walls on the left and right with waist level glass cases in front of them.
-The guy who soldered his bracelet was middle aged with long stringy hair and had a black cat in the shop.
-There were black and white "publicity" photos of people dressed as vampires above the cases along the walls.
-The floor was in bad shape with riveted metal covering many holes in the floor.
-He kept referring to the shop as weird and satanic.
I won't ever see this person again so I won't be able to relay any answers I'm given.
