Welcome to KuriosityKits

Welcome! My shop is brand-new and I look forward to building relationships with customers. I will be adding new items several times every week, so please check back often! While my offerings are very eclectic, I specialize in the one-of-a-kind Kuriosity Kits. These consist of upcycled Altoid containers that I customize by embellishing with paint, fabric, paper, wood, and other materials. Please see each listing for some samples to choose from! On the inside of each box, you will find many items--trinkets, charms, talismans, symbols--centered around a certain theme. In most cases, there will also be an accompanying paper key on high-quality, archival paper containing a quote to accompany each item. A few of the themes you can expect in coming days and weeks are: Mothers, Fathers, Anxiety/Worry, Meditation, Nerd Romance, Literary Romance, Grandparents, Good Luck, Thinking-of-You, Pirates, Mermaids, Fairies, Fairy Tales, and more. While I always provide two waxed-cotton necklace cords so that the charms can be used as jewelry, by gathering them under a theme and accenting them with quotes and sayings, they transform into something entirely new--tangible representations of your own loves, interests, and hobbies (or those of the person you plan to gift). Think of it as a handcrafted trinket box with trinkets as a bonus! Most of the contents are manufactured "found" items that I gather from a variety of suppliers, but many are handmade by me. I love a challenge, so if you want different items from the ones shown or substitutions, just ask! Thanks for visiting my store! More »
