Curious George Collectibles is a store that urban legends are made of—George's (he's a real person, check out his photo on the placard in the last gallery image) carefully curated collection of curiosities, collectibles, and covet-worthy accessories is, for the most part, housed behind the counter or in shiny glass cases.
From vintage guns—the prize piece here is a prop gun used by Kurt Russell in the movie Tombstone—to $375 handmade beaded and braided belts, to a dish of snakehead keyrings, this is the kind of store that, sight unseen, exists only in the urbanite imagination.
