Curiosity Inc. opened up in 2016 with two main goals: to find amazing, once-forgotten items for the store, and to have incredible adventures. Wherever possible, the owner, Alex, brings his three kids along on the exploratory journeys. He has been infected with the collecting bug since his childhood and hopes to pass on some of his enthusiasm for treasures from the past to his kids. It is, without a doubt, the stories behind the items that truly fascinate the owner and keeps his appetite for these old relics insatiable.
The thrill of the research is a driving force behind Curiosity Inc and because of this shoppers and collectors can be assured of the authenticity of every item in the store. As well as the homepage, the owner also runs a YouTube channel where he documents his finds and goes into the fruits of his research in great depth. Where he may lack the knowledge, other experts are called in to fill the gaps, so no stone is left unturned and no item in the store is without a story. It is one of the things that makes shopping in this store so memorable.
Since the goal is ‘interesting objects’, there is really no limit to the possibilities of what might be found within Curiosity Inc. The owner is an expert picker and will never say no to the opportunity to go digging around old properties. Artifacts uncovered for a second lease at life include old photographs, oil cans, advertising memorabilia, toy cars, pocket watches, compasses, guitars, vinyl records, musical instruments, vintage coins, nautical antiques, and anything that can be considered weird and wonderful!
As well as the general antique items in Curiosity Inc, the owner also has a special interest in vintage motorcycles. He is constantly on the lookout for parts and related goods to sell in the store and is also a member of the Canadian Vintage Motorcycle Group. Needless to say, motorcycle enthusiasts should make a beeline here.
