Curiosa - A Delight on Canyon Road

Photos by C. Whitney-Ward

When Shawna Tatom opened CURIOSA 4-years ago along Canyon Road, she wanted to fill her diminutive shop with whimsy and delight.
 She succeeded.

"The thread that ties everything together," explains Shawna, "is I only buy what I love."

And she is passionate about old books, hence the name Curiosa, a term meaning rare or unusual books. Much of the shops lovely collection of jewelry is artfully displayed on the pages of old books.


She's also passionate about the natural world - rabbits, leaves, flowers
birds, etc. wend their way into delightful objects displayed invitingly throughout the shop.














And, you can never have enough wishes...
