About Curio City


The History of Curio City
    
We had a good run. In the summer of 2005, the Mayor of Curio City started planning a store that would carry interesting, useful, fun, unusual products of reliable quality and good value that would appeal to a wide range of people. We never wanted to grow beyond being a mom-and-pop shop with high principles. We held onto that vision through the rise of Amazon, the Great Recession, Trump's trade war, and all the other changes that have roiled the retail sector. We sold hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of products and eked out a bare living doing it.
    
After 13 years, the Mayor is tired of doing this. December 21, 2018, will be our last day in business. After that, we will devote all of our working hours to our writing and editing business, Blue Hills Editorial Services, as we count the days until retirement.
