Went to Graniteville location expecting to pick up imported items I could only find there but the building is empty. Appears to have gone out of business.

Awesome experience, very friendly! Best place to go if you're looking for early 20's and to the late 80's. Always has stuff coming in everyday. It's an amazing collection, 20+ years. I'm amazed! Left with some laughs and great memories! Definitely going back! 👌👍

We have went to the store a few times, each at a different location. We have not yet visited the Graniteville location. We loved going there, and they have lots of neat and different items to see and purchase.

It is now in two locations. We prefer the Graniteville one. It is easier to park and I am sure a boon to the town. The tea is still good and the service much quicker!

Found this gem of a store/restaurant on a recent trip to quaint downtown Aiken. We love tea and scones and theirs compares with the tea that we have had in England and at the Ritz Carleton hotel in Ireland! Great sandwiches and the store is...More

If you are as interested in your Irish and/or Scottish heritage as I am, then Curiosity Shop will likely do the same for you. Even if this does not apply to you, I recommend at least one visit for the opportunity to experience somewhere different,...More
