A curio is basically an object of curiosity which has inherent value , another term for it would be art.
Curios can be anything from the first generation Sinclair ZX Spectrum to an ancient India coin. The best part it most of the items are excellent investments, some of my items have DOUBLED and TRIPLED in my lifetime alone.
I am a collector since childhood and so was my father and his father before him. My grandfather and his peers built a whole chain of curio shops.
I guess the line will stop with me since the newer generation does not seem to be interested in anything but the more glamourous aspects of collections
I am therefore liquidating a part of my collection, and hopefully the items will bring as much pleasure to the new owners as they have brought me over the years
