Curio & Co. Product Catalog

     About Us

Curio & Co. understands collecting and collectors.  Each of us can recall that first childhood treasure – a smashed penny, a toy from the bottom of the cereal box, a rubber band with “You’re the bestest” written on it by Jenny McKenzie – and we remember feeling “this is so special that I have to keep it forever.”  So we did.

We know that memories have powers so strong they can take you back to a specific time and place in your life that you can live over and over again.  And sharing those memories with others can be just as powerful.  Mr. Druthers remembers his Great Grandfather – who worked at Curio & Co. side by side with his father – bringing out a collection of matchbooks collected from travels around the world.  “Listening to his stories of those matchbooks; well I was right there with him…in places I’d never even seen.”

All of us at Curio & Co. are honored to help you build your collection of memories – to rediscover your own childhood treasures and share in some of our favorite memories of places you might not have seen yet.

Team Members

  • Elmer Druthers
    CEO

    Mr. Druthers continues to uphold the family traditions of excellence and dedication to high-quality merchandise and that have made Curio & Co. great for the past four generations.

  • Margie Trundleberry
    Office Manager

    Margie really runs the show around here, and we just couldn’t manage anything without her.  And we’re not just saying that because she’s looking over our shoulder right now as we write this.  Honestly.

  • Jay Laramie
    Head of Acquisitions

    Jay’s work tracking down all of our one-of-a-kind collectibles brings him to some unusual places (with unusual expense reports), but buying Rex Ensemble tour posters for a living?  Lucky devil.

  • Louis Smeedley
    Head of Archives

    Louis and his team in Archives and Restoration ensure that the next generation gets the same chance to drool over Darnell Duffy’s work or hold a Star Cowboy Blaster in their hands.  (Louis would prefer gloved hands, but we just can’t help it.)

  • Shirley Dinn
    Head of Sales

    Shirley’s job is both the most exciting, and the hardest.  Bringing you the coolest products from entertainment memorabilia makes us so happy.  But letting go of it is really difficult.

  • Ned Wazowski
    Head of Research

    We sometimes forget that Ned doesn’t know everything.  Math, freeways and chili recipes confound him.  But for anything else you might need to know, Ned’s got the information.

Comic-Con 2016

Curio & Co. at San Diego Comic-Con International #SDCC 2016

Our favorite time of year has arrived – it’s finally Comic-Con time!

The Curio & Co. year basically revolves around these five days in San Diego: we’re either gearing up for Comic-Con or coming down from it. 

During Comic-Con we connect with old friends and meet new friends. We get up close and personal with artists whose work we’ve admired from afar, and we celebrate each rarity we manage to hunt down. Comic-Con is like Thanksgiving, New Year’s and Valentine’s Day all rolled into one. Can you sense our goosebumps?

But of course, it’s not all about us. We’ll have a variety of treasures for you: pins, vintage posters and plenty of books. Plus, we’ll have all your favorite characters like Frank and His Friend, Spaceman Jax and Roger Believe.

Most importantly, however, we’ve poured through the archives to find you curios that you won’t find anywhere else! We won’t say more about these treasures yet – but you’ve got to see ‘em to believe ‘em! Come back for more information after the big reveal.

If you’ll be in San Diego for Comic-Con, drop by and say hello – we’d love to see you! We’ll be at booth o-2 in the Small Press section. We can’t wait to catch up!
