NEW YORK (AP) - Where's a Black Friday shopper to turn for a 19th century vampire-killing kit?

Believe it or not, the item is part of the Black Friday madness at the Ripley's Times Square Odditorium. It will set you back about $25,000.

At a little more than $19,000 a shrunken head is a comparative bargain.

Or the thoughtful gift-giver might prefer a taxidermy Albino giraffe. The price tag is about $1.7 million. Gift-wrapping is not included.

Still got tons of room under the Christmas tree - and about $2.5 million to spare? Your loved one might be clamoring for 18th century, iron-clad elephant armor from India.

Already shopped out? No problem. The "featured collection" is being offered until Dec. 24.
