Curiosities or Oddities are foreign, strange or rare items that people think is worthy collecting. Most old museums started out as collections of curiosities. In most dictionaries curiositie is defined as 1) Antiques 2) Foreign objects 3) Rare Things 4) Rare objects 5) strange items. At Retro & Design, we often think lots of finds are worth saving. However, they are not all categorized under the name of curiosities. The category curiosites in our webshop has more likely some items that can’t be defined in a specific section.
