We've been looking forward to your visit!

Allow us to welcome you to the curio. If you dream of exploring the libraries of dark old manor houses, the back rooms of Victorian curiosity shops, the dusty catacombs below the Louvre— if a perfect weekend is marked by gentle rain, soft cardigans, and a favorite novel, the perfect accessory is always one-of-a-kind, and the perfect Mr. Darcy is always Colin Firth—if you love both science and alchemy, enjoy scalding hot tea and a bourbon on the rocks, are a stickler for grammar but can dig a good run-on sentence—then you are our kind of person.

We fill our online mercantile with just the thoughtful bits and bobs to help you tell your story, cozy your home, cheer a friend, and delight your soul. You'll find nary a Live, Laugh, Love bauble here, but if your tastes run a bit more eclectic, a bit wittier, prettier, even just a little bit darker, we will get along famously.

So please, pour that tea, that bourbon, or that absinthe (no judgment!) and make yourself at home. Stay as long as you’d like. We’re so glad you’re here.

I like old books. I like art. I like pretty, pretty things. Curio is all this and more. I've been wearing these masks when I go out and get compliments every time. —Jessie R.

Shut up and take my money. I got in early on the pre-pre-launch and am so pleased with everything I ordered. Now I'm going through and sending all my friends gifts so they know how much I miss them! You can't find stuff like this anywhere else and I know they gonna love it!!!—Gretchyn F.

A portion of every sale goes to support the charitable mission of Room to Read. Many world problems can be addressed through one solution: education. Knowing how to read makes people safer, healthier and more self-sufficient—yet over 750 million people are illiterate—two thirds of whom are women and girls.
