About

Garnering enthusiasm for obscure items is my calling. I have "coveted curiosities" for practically forever. Etsy is how I wind down at the end of the day.

Every item in this shop has been hand picked by me. I never offer anything that I would not be tempted to buy myself, and I am thoroughly descriptive about everything we sell.

Often, I get asked where I find these treasures, and the truth is: scouring unpopular vintage shops, dusty warehouses, picked-over estates, enormous flea markets, our own private overflowing collection, secret swaps with trade partners across the country, and the cyber world--where I unearth bizarre and usually puzzling things--from all over the globe.

I have a penchant for paper ephemera, Joseph Cornell, vintage & antique books, Victorian & Edwardian fodder, vintage plastic & religious kitsch, vintage & antique medals, and outright oddities. I simply cannot resist an empty vessel or musty book.

When I am curious about anything, I strive to become an expert on it.

I am a firm believer in kindness, respect, and Karma.

I have shipped to over 65 countries. This shop is run out of very peculiar arrangements in a 12 x 14' room into the wee hours, often seven days a week. Our paper goods are printed on an Epson Artisan 710 using the highest quality paper and adhesives. Additionally, we credit Etsy shop "brocadelion" with the creation of our shop banner.

What can I say?

I just love sorting and separating insignificancies into small salable piles.
