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.

For specific inquiries contact Margie, she'll be happy to set-up a meeting for you to meet with our CEO.

Margie Trundleberry
Office Manager

office(at)curioandco.com

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

acquisitions(at)curioandco.com

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

archives(at)curioandco.com

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

sales(at)curiandco.com

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.
