Here’s a piece just released to a local paper … in a single statement 🙂 we’ve got literally thousands of new items in the shop!
We may not be everyone’s cup of tea but we’re certain we can all agree, that the Cabinet of Curiosities is one of the most unique shopping experiences in the region. In fact, we take great pride in being been described as “HomeSense through the eyes of Stephen King”. Our small and ridiculously over-stuffed Cabinet is a one-of-a-kind source for unusual, magical, mystical, historical and awe inspiring treasures collected from around the world. Television and film have celebrated our distinct inventory as have some of the industry’s most notable figures, were we to drop names you might rub elbow’s with Guillermo Del Toro or Danny Elfman… Welcome one and all, those who appreciate the unusual and celebrate the wonderous, to our fantastical antiques emporium and museum of natural history – a true collection of wonders. Featuring tantalizing remnants of the Billy Jamieson Collection, the Niagara Falls Museum and the iconic Gord Smith FX collection.
What is your signature?
To redefine exceptional and inspire great wonder! Where else would you have to decide between a 2,000 yr old egyptian mummified hawk or Wolverine’s original 1st generation prosthetic arms from X-Men? Or maybe 80,000,000 yr old Mosasaur tooth strikes your fancy!
How did you start your business?
A lifelong fascination with treasure hunting, ghosts, science fiction and history paved the way for an eclectic collection that simply evolved into a retail venture to share the mysteries and wonders of the world.
What is the secret to your success?
The secret to success in this business is to never lose sight of the child inside. It takes the imagination and wonder of youth to see the magic that surrounds us every day. And trust us, it’s not on an IKEA shelf or at the dollar store. Magic exists!
