Welcome To The Curios

The Curios have been gathered from near and far. They may be common-as-muck or one-of-a-kind. They may be worth a pretty penny or a dime-a-dozen. They may be horrifying, captivating, loathsome, or scintillating.

Whatever the cause of their creation, hopefully they bring enjoyment to someone out there.



I'm back! Hopefully, posts will become a lot more frequent from now on...

This is one of the postcards I picked up during my overseas jaunt. We visited a little a little store named 'Almirante 23', full of amazing knick-knacks: film lobby cards, bottle openers, coins, and boxes and boxes of postcards. On one of the higher shelves were a number of boxes marked 'EROTISMO'. I requested to view them, and one of the cranky old men running the shop reluctantly scaled a wobbly ladder, scrutinised the boxes and selected a small sample of postcards for me to look through. Under his suspicious eye, I chose 5 that took my fancy. When I took them to the counter, and flashed my cash, the cranky old man was suddenly all smiles, giving me his business card, and wishing me well. Adios, Señor, until we meet again!
