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)

Thank u so much,MikeNewYork. but does anyone know "Dance Stick"?

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.
