    Questions!

    1.What are "occult shop", "odd shop"?
    I read an article which refers a kind of shop called "small occult shop", "odd shop", I don’t know what they are.
    And also there is the Different Junque Shoppe, is it a shop’s name?

    2.What is "Houma Dance Stick"?
    What is a "Dance Stick"? And what is "Houma"?

    3.What is "parapanalia"? I cannot find it in the dictionary.

    1. An occult shop is one that sells items used in magic and mysticism.

    I have not heard "odd shop" as a type. It could mean a "strange shop" or shop that is uncommon, as in "the odd shop will sell widgets."

    I suspect that "junque shop" is a name, because they have played with the spelling of "junk".

    2. I haven't a clue.

    3. paraphernalia (it is rarely pronounced with the second r, though that is the preferred pronunciation)

    Houma probably refers to the American Indian tribe of Louisiana and a dance stick is a ceremonial stick used in Indian dances. You can use Google to find related sites.
