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